(Dusty Attic DT + Simon Says Monday Challenge)

For my second Dusty Attic DT project this month, since it is December, 
I thought that I would create and share with you a set of Christmas cards
using some very festive Dusty Attic chipboard and colours!

I am also entering this card set into the Simon Says Monday Challenge!

On this first card, I some pieces from the Creative Layers #5 set
combined with a bit of Perforated Mesh.

On the poinsettias, I used Dusty in Colour Cranberry with some Clear Gloss Varnish and 
dabs of Vintage Gold to give them some shimmer and painted the pine branch 
with a mixture of Forest and Capri.  I decorated the center of my flowers with DA bling.

The second card showcases the rest of the Creative Layers set, which goes to show that 
these chipboard pieces can be used in layers as was intended or on their own as I did.

I used the 'Celebrate This' piece from the Mini Captions #10 set,
and turned it into my sentiment by covering the 'this' by 'noel' of the Wordplay #5.

On my last card, I cut up the Holly Flourish and layered the pieces
to frame a corner of my card and added a couple Stars #2.

I dabbed the flourish with Forest acrylic paint first and then once dry
I lightly dabbed some of the Capri colour and then covered it with Clear Gloss Varnish.

Here are the Dusty Attic products I used when creating this card set:

Dusty in Colour
Vintage Gold - DA0926

Until next time!
