Christmas Card with Red Berries (Felicitare de Craciun cu bobite rosii)



This is the first Christmas card I made this year and it is for Kristina's Color Challenge #32. I really loved the colors and the ornaments presented as inspiration and tired as I was I made this card last night. One thing I love about this is that I only used paper from my scrap stash, except the card base. I also uses a piece of napkin instead of patterned paper. The berries are adhered with hot glue.
Next I want to make a box to put the card inside instead of an envelope and I will also try some variations with silver stars and little pine cones. I hope I can find time for that during the weekend.



Aceasta este prima felicitare de Craciun pe care am facut-o anul acesta. Mi-au placut foarte mult culorile pe care Kristina le-a propus saptamana acesta ca inspiratie si oricat am fost de obosita ieri seara nu m-am putut abtine sa nu particip si eu. Un lucru de care sunt foarte mandra e ca am folosit doar hartie din cutia cu resturi, exceptand cartonul de baza. De asemenea am folosit o parte dintr-un servetel cu motive de Craciun. "Crengile" cu bobite sunt lipite cu plastic fierbinte ca sa nu cada.
Sper sa am timp in weekend sa completez modelul cu o cutie pentru prezentare in loc de plic si eventual niste variatii cu stelute argintii si conuri de brad.

Meda ... I adore the way you've used the berries! I use similar berries, etc. each year on our Christmas gifts instead of, or with ribbons. However, I have never even thought of applying them to my papercrafting ideas! This is so unique, and so very elegant!
