Guest Designer - Happy Little Stampers March Christmas Challenge

Hey all, I am so happy to be guest designing with the Happy Little Stampers March Christmas Challenge.

The challenge this month is for shaped cards this month.

As you might already know that I love shaped cards, I have posted quite a few shaped cards here.
For this challenge, I did lot of thinking, after shelving many ideas, I decided to made a bauble shaped card. It is a one layer card only.
I wanted to stick to my favorite for Christmas , white and gold color theme. I started with drawing a circle, while cutting it, I kept  some space for the eyelet to be punched, to add a twine.
I had used a gold brush marker here, it was bit difficult to color just the edges here, I had to be super careful...and yay..I did it without any mess!!
I added the curved lines too, and doodled some stars, despite having a star stamp!!
The snowflakes are from Kaisercraft, and so is the sentiment. I stamped the snowflakes in gold shimmer ink, too bad that the picture don't do justice to these here. But I couldn't get a better picture, no matter how many times I tried. If the snowflakews get the shine, the rest wouldn't get, so at last I chose this picture.
I added an eyelet, and a gold twine to finish off.

Just coming here to add another photo, otherwise it is looking more like a tag than a card ;)
Once open, this how it looks. Just one simple layer.

I hope you stop by the HLS blog and do join in fro the challenge.

The only challenge, I can add this card is:

One Layer Christmas Card Challenge
I hope my one layer circle card is a fit!!

Thank you for stopping by, I really appreciate your kind  feedback :) Have a great day!

  2. Congrats on your GD feature, Rahmat! And a lovely card to go with! I actually thought you had used a die cut for the bauble!! You've got awesome control while drawing! Love it!

  3. Awesome! Your 'by hand' work on this card is incredible! Such an inspirational piece.

  7. Rahmat, thank you for being our guest designer this month at Happy Little Stampers! What a perfect card for the "shaped" challenge. I love the white and gold colour scheme, and all your stars and snowflakes!

  8. Rahmat, thanks for joining HLS Christmas Challenge this month as a Guest Designer. It's a wonderfully shaped ornament card, and in reading the post, sounds as though you did this with fussy cutting, and not dies. That's awesome. Another thing I'm in awe of, is the evenness of the gold outline around the edges. That's always difficult for me to do, and have it look nice. Yours looks wonderful. Love the design you've created on the card front, and the little hanger so that the card can be displayed. Well done! TFS
