Hello there – just popping by to share the card I made for this week’s Runway Inspired Challenge. We have another awesome inspiration photo and the chance to win a prize from our fabulous sponsor Winnie & Walter.

Here’s my card:

I began by stamping the outline leafy canopy image from A Tree for All Seasons onto a piece of white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then stamped the tree from the same set on top of the canopy image.

I coloured the leaves with various Copic markers. I used a light blue marker around the outside of the tree, echoing the model’s outfit. I then added some Diamond Stickles to the leaves and set aside to dry.

I used the largest frame die from Essentials: Katharine Cutaways to trim a panel of cardstock down to slightly smaller than my card base, and then used a circle die to die-cut an aperture, through which you would see the sparkly tree!

I partially stamped the same tree onto the die-cut panel so that it would look like the image was continuing, and added a sentiment beneath it. I adhered a piece of acetate to the back of the aperture and added lots of foam tape around it and on the back of the panel so that I could create a shaker card.

Once the coloured tree image was dry, I stuck it straight down onto a card base and brushed it lightly with my powder tool, as my shaker would be made up of glitter and sequins – I didn’t want the glitter to cling where it shouldn’t! I foam mounted the die-cut panel on top, ensuring the trees lined up.

To finish, I added some sequins and enamel dots.
