All Is Bright Quadriptych Christmas Card #AYSI189

by Joanne James28. November 2018 20:00

Today I'm squeezing in a card  for the current challenge over at As You See It where they have this fun sketch to work with:

The layout features a quadriptych: four panels behind the sentiment element. For a lover of designer paper like me, I was spoilt for choice! So I challenged myself to use a pattern that I hadn't before - take a look:


 Here's the low-down on today's card:

Shine On - The All Is Bright designer papers feature lots of photographic prints that whilst beautiful in their own right, I often struggle to use this type of print on cards. I've been using them to make crackers and they look really festive, but thought a combination of colourful tree light bulbs and stars in a repeating pattern would work for today's card.  

A Top 10 Product - I cropped my sentiment with one of the Stitched Ovals from the Stitched Shapes Framelits. This framelit set is one of my most used tools and would definitely feature in my personal Product Top 10. Unfortunately they aren't available today as they are part of the last of the 10% off Online Extravaganza sales and the allocate stock on this popular item ran out yesterday. They should be back in the store tomorrow at their usual price, so my advice would be to pick them up then - they are worth waiting for. 

Making Spirits Bright - I love the sentiment I featured on the front of today's card which comes from the Making Christmas Bright set - these words ring so true for me! Once all the hard work and preparations are done, one of the things I enjoy most about the festive season is spending quality time with friends. I added a twist of Real Red mixed satin ribbon, an All Is Bright star paper clip and a two-tone sentiment on the inside of my card to finish: 

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

Beautiful! Love the combination of papers, the layers of mat and that swish of bright ribbon. Thanks for joining us again at As You See It, Joanne.

This is a delightful mixture of photorealistic, graphic design and sentiment, Joanne! I love the little paperclip embellishment. It adds just the right finishing touch! Thanks for joining us here at As You See It Challenges!
