A String Art Christmas!

Hey there - The Divas have an end of the month post today and I used a string art die by our fabulous sponsor Birch Press Designs. Here's the card I'm sharing:

Supplies: Paper - Park Lane A2 card; Tim Holtz kraft metallics
Dies - Birch Press Design String Art Circle
Other - PinkFresh Studio Holiday Foiled Sentiments;
gems; foam tape

Here's another time my card went in a different direction from where it started. At first I pulled out a yellow card thinking to make a birthday card. I planned all along to have three string art circles. My third was an orange one but I pivoted to a gold one with a dark green card. I still need Christmas cards and had spotted a PFS Christmas circle sentiment on my table. Love how this turned out, even though the photo doesn't capture all the gorgeous metallic shine. I'm adding my card to Darnell's November NBUS Challenge since the string art is getting first play here.

And here's a bonus card featuring a BPD sentiment diecut along with that orange string art circle! It's hard to see but there's a thin blue shadow and a vellum outline layer to the sentiment.

Supplies: Paper - A Cut Above A2 card; My Mind's Eye patterned; 
TH kraft metallic; scrap of blue; Paper Studio Vellum
Dies - Birch Press Design String Art Circle &

Our November Diva Challenge - Anything Goes runs through 9pm Pacific Time so be sure to get your entries linked up before today's deadline. And please remember to include a die cut or embossing folder in your design! The lucky random winner, selected from eligible November entries, will receive a $20 code to the BPD online store (to be announced December 3rd). 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you in the Diva Gallery!

At first I thought it was embroidered, it looks so real.

That die reminds me of the spirograph game we had as children. I used to spend hours with the little wheels making patterns. The die works so well on a Christmas card, good thinking. I think the orange one is my favourite xx

So, so fun! The PinkFresh foiled sentiment is the perfect choice for the first card. The patterned paper in the second card is made for the string art elements!
