Love this card!

 



The title says it all. My inspiration was this card by Claudia Rosa (the card making genius!) and I just went from there! The paper is Basic Grey Jovial, which I was surprisingly disappointed with this year but if used right it does come out real nice. I just don't like the dark colors and the burgundy etc. just not my taste. However I do love how some of the lighter papers worked on this card! So you just never know :) I was trying to figure out what to do with the wide outer circle around the image, I don't have those circle stamps that make a nice image around like hers so I thought well how about I stamp the other stamp in this Stampin Up stamp in a neutral color and see how the edges of it show under the image. I did have to stamp it a couple times to get it to the edge but I am really happy with how it turned out. Then I used one of the Spellbinders tag dies and it didn't look right the way the curved end stuck out on the paper edge so I cut off the end that stuck out and sort of came up with the ribbon idea :) The button was kind of what do I do with that area down there that she used such a nice bow in sort of thing. My creative process is kind of immature as I have never had any formal training in Art but hey it works, I just struggle so! Off to make more Christmas cards :)

Your creative process is so much further advanced than mine!!! I think you are great at coming up with ways to change things!

Love this card too. Love the button, the background circle (really great idea there), and the lace!! Nice job!
