December Guest Designer: Pippa Price!
Please welcome our December Guest Designer, Pippa Price! Pippa is a wife of 29 years, mom of two lovely daughters, an educator, and a lifetime crafter. She is also a fellow sister in Christ, and in fact is the wife of a rector -- how fun! Pippa first came to my attention through our monthly challenges. She has a clean and classy crafting style, and the way that she colors the images on her projects always makes them shine out.
For her first project, Pippa has made a magnificent Christmas card combining elements of nature with the true reason for the season -- the birth of sweet baby Jesus! She started with the pre-colored poinsettia wreath image from "Beauty of the Season". She printed the poinsettia flowers multiple times, and then layered them one on top of another. This 3D layering, plus the golden glitter she added to the flower centers really bring them to life! Pippa made a sweet little recessed spot inside the poinsettia frame in which to nestle the image from "Away in a Manger." She colored the image of the baby Jesus in the manger with Spectrum Noir pens. See what I mean about her coloring? It is just so vivid! Again, Pippa layered multiple copies of the image to give this dimension and life. Then she layered the whole beautiful scene on to a festive gold cardstock base.
Here is what the inside looks like. Pippa duplicated the poinsettia frame image from the front of the card, adding a Scripture verse about the birth of our Lord, along with another warm Christmas sentiment.
Pippa even created an "envelobox" for this showpiece of a card. How fun is that?!?
To read more about how Pippa put together this fabulous Christmas creation, and to see more of her lovely work, please visit her blog. We'll have another fun project from her next Wednesday, so please do check back!
