Six days, SIX, of beautiful, elegant, merry, cute, artsy, and craftsy projects to have you heading out to your local stores or internet sites to buy these goodies immediately!

Well here we are Day 2 and I am thinking what I need to do for Christmas, its so far away, and yet it will be here before we know it.  So on to card 2.  I know Stentangle is popular but rather than doing the more 'formal' design', why not just doodle.  So here's my version of a doodling card.

This is what I used:-
White card
Silver mirri board
Dark blue patterned paper
Dreamweaver Nesting Frames DD001
Dreamweaver Stencil Ornament LG674
Sakura Metallic silver pen
Adhesive gems clear
Versafine Majestic Blue
Woodware Clear Magic JGS357

and this is how I created the card:-

Take a piece of white card and the largest of the nesting frame dies and cut the panel.  The stencil is then placed centrally on the panel and using the Metallic Silver Pen draw around the design, remove the stencil.  I coloured the hanger and top of the ornament.  The design is divided into smaller areas by drawing straight and wavy lines. The time has come to doodle, just do what you like. The areas are filled with your doodles.using the Metallic Silver Pen.

When the ornament has been doodled then add the gems, I used 3 along the bottom and the 2 sides, and above the hanger.

Finally blend the Majestic Blue ink pad over the panel using a large stencil brush, the card is then assembled using the silver mirri and dark blue patterned paper and white card.  The message is stamped in Versafine Black Onyx at the bottom of the card.

The card can be as involved as you like, the doodles are your choice leading to it being quick or slow to make.  Enjoy doodling.

That is my card for today, here's what the rest of the team have been doing.  Enjoy.

There will be more tomorrow. Till then.  Thanks for stopping by.
