The themes this week are Lady Bugs, Little Pink Pigs, Having a Picnic , and Christmas.
I continue to enjoy making Christmas cards and the image I got for July from Bugaboo is Deer Duo. It is so cute and I colored it up with my Copic markers.
I was looking at a recent issue of a cardmaking magazine and they showed cards with the serendipity technique. I hadn't done this technique for years and decided it was perfect for my background layer. So I gathered up 7 or 8 holiday paper scraps and cut them up into odd shapes and began piecing them together onto a piece of 5 x 7 inch white cardstock. The article recommended cutting or tearing but I didn't think I was going to go for the torn look. I used my glue stick by Xyron to spread adhesive over the entire backs of each piece.
I found a sticker sentiment and some other odds and ends in a bowl I keep in my craft space where everything I don't end up using goes. So I found a green bird and green foliage. I finished with some red and gold sequins and a touch of clear Wink of Stella on the ribbons on the gifts.
The finished size is 5 x 7 inches.
I hope you will visit Festive Friday's at the Outlawz and see what my teammates have made!
