GM 27: Grungy holiday card boot camp

Hi everyone,

Today, it's time for Grungy Monday, and this time I can combine the Holiday Card Bootcamp day 6 with it. I've already made the cards for day 4 and 5, I only need to post them on my blog. I'm going to do that tomorrow:). But now back to the project today. For Grungy Monday we had to use the techniques that Tim Holtz did for one of the 12 tags of Christmas. This time it was day 6 of 2007. Click here for the link.
For Holiday Card Bootcamp we had given a few sketches. I liked the round card with the flowers a lot. And immediately knew what I wanted to make. I think my inspiration is back: D!!

Here is the result:

I have chosen not to use a  sentiment on the front of the card. It's gonna be on the inside of the card. The backside piece is not finished yet, because I wanted to post this tonight. The flower is made from loose petals of grunge paper and glued together with a hot glue gun. And it wasn't a disaster, I didn't had a fight with it! I love how the flower turned out! 
The materials:

  • Distress Ink: iced spruce, tumbled glass, Pumice stone, vintage photo, festive berries
  • Perfect pearl mists: perfect pearl
  • Mask: Seasonal -> snowman
  • Stamps: Tim Holtz
  • Ribbon
  • Flower
  • Rhinestone
  • Grunge paper
  • Hot glue gun

Thanks a lot for stopping by!
