I have been SO out straight at work these last few weeks - I've either had no time or been too tired to create for some of the challenges I usually do - but I'm excited to say that I finally found time (before the deadline!) to get the latest Compendium of Curiosities 3 challenge done!
For CC3C #15 we are working from Page 38 of Tim's book using Cabinet Card Pockets. Usually we cannot say what techniques we use - but since this challange was to use a specific item howver you wanted - we can tell you what we did!
I was going to use a Found Relative Card - but then my niece sent me the Snapfish album of their recent outing to see Santa - and I knew I'd use one of her photos of my delicious grand nephew James and his baby sister Madelyn. James is old hat at visiting Santa as he is 3 years old - but this is the very first visit for Madelyn - and you can see her looking curiously up at this jolly old elf! I printed the photo on my computer printer in sepia ink to make it look vintage.
Here's a close up of the top portion. I've got lots of Idea-ology products here - Black Paper String, Chit Chat Stickers that I rubbed with Archival Orange Blossom Ink , Remnant Rubs/Christmas Time, a Snowflake adornment that I embossed in Tree Branch embossing powder, Mirrored Stars that I sponged with Orange Blossom Ink , Alpha Tiles to spell out Santa and Label Letters I used to show the year.
and the bottom portion
And a view of how I die cut and attached Tim's Small Easel to the back so that my Cabinet Card Frame would stand up for display. I cut it out of Grunge Board so it would be sturdy.
I think Christie and Nate will love this card of Madelyn's first visit to see Santa with her brother! Now I'm off to eat supper before watching The Voice - and then dropping into bed!
Thought I'd share the photo in full color - to show how different it looks
This week's challenge is sponsored by Inspiration Emporium. I hope you'll check out the challenge and join us! You still have a few days to get it done!
