Friday MashUp - 87

Today's card was inspired by the beautiful inspiration photo over at The Friday MashUp.

I began on a Bashful Blue cardstock base and inked the edges with Marina Mist.  With another piece of Bashful paper, I ran a snowflake embossing folder through my Big Shot and mounted it at an angle on the card face, then added a paper doily to the center of the card.  I die cut a triangle using Blue patterned paper for my tree, and affixed the tree at an angle on the right side of the card.  The star was punched out using Silver glitter paper and placed on top of the tree.  A short strip of textured Brown cardstock was added below the tree and a Silver brad was anchored through the center of the tree.  'Joy' was stamped using Blue ink onto a White tag and added across the bottom half of the card.  A Blue button was added on the bottom right corner of the tag.  A cut textured Blue banner   was stamped 'Christmas' using Blue ink, and attached across the upper edge of the sentiment tag.

Thank you for stopping by!


So here is the "Mashup" Challenge:
  1. Make a project using "the inspiration photo".
  2. Or Make a project a "Gift project". 
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "project for a gift using the inspiration photo above".
