Tuesday Trigger!!


This is the Tuesday Trigger photograph for the Moxie Fab World Blog, I love the rustic shabby chic look and wanted to make a Christmas card with a shabby chic feel.

Here is my finished card, the Kraft card has been run through a wood grain embossing folder and then lightly rubbed with Tea Dye distress ink. The circle background is made using the Hero Arts striped circle stamp and Fired Brick distress ink.  I have then add a strip of white paper stamped with Canvas stripes and an Artistic Outpost fir cone image, the sentiment is also from Artistic Outpost.

Hope you are enjoying the weekend, unfortunately I have a cold which I must have caught from the children at school, so I am going to relax infront of the fire now and watch a bit of TV.

This is great, wondered how you got the textured effect on the kraft card, love the little charm too.

Sally, I love your interpretation of the trigger photo. *sigh* The wood-like texture of the card base, the santa charm and red gingham ribbon and especially how you've slanted the sentiment against those peppermint looking stripes...genius design!

Kids, such little germ-sharers! Yuck. I hope you're feeling better soon :)
I love your take on the Trigger - perfectly red & rustic! The Santa charm is a fabulous touch, and I love the offset & different types of stripes. (Geez, that doesn't sound properly written, but anyway...)

Hi Sally! I do love that Trigger and your interpretation! That little Santa pendant is super cute! I hope that you are feeling a little better. It sounds so nice, sitting "in front of the fire", it's been a long time since we were able to do that!
