#58 Anything Goes - CD Sunday Plus Challenge

The theme, as usual, is Anything Goes at the CD Sunday Plus Challenge. You must have used something printed from a CD, a USB or a digital download, you must state where the item used is from and you must make a physical item and not a digital one. I’ve combined this with the current challenge at Fezziwigs Festive Frolics which has the theme of Santa Says.

Regular followers may recognise this card as I made a similar one back in 2015 (click here to see the original).

Using Serif Craft Artist the central topper for this card was in the ready made Christmas card section of the digi kit Hearts and Roses by Hearts Designs. But it was surrounded by a horrible backing paper that was cream with green dots. As with the original card I used a much nicer backing paper by Victoria Nelson in her Christmas Bouquet digi kit. 

I did things a little differently to the original card I colourised the frame to be brown – the original was black. And I recoloured the background to be similar to the greens in the backing paper. Since 2015 I’ve learnt how to use the colour picker in Craft Artist! I also put text along the banner this time and I included mats in a deep pink similar to the pink in the backing paper.

Items used:
Serif Craft Artist – Hearts and Roses by Hearts Designs and Christmas Bouquet by Victoria Nelson.
Tonic Studios - Craft Perfect card in Raspberry Pink and Nuvo Crystal Drops in Pink Orchid. 

The challenge will close on Saturday 24th April 2021 at 1pm.

Don't forget that the CD Sunday Plus Challenge is now about making items using something printed from a craft CD Rom, USB or digital download. You can use other craft items on your card/project, such as a stamp or die, but you must include something printed from the new categories. You must also make a physical item and not a digital one. In your blog post/Facebook entry you must give the name of the printed item you've used.

We also have a Facebook page if you don't have a blog - The CD Sunday Plus Challenge.

I’m entering this into the Fezziwigs Festive Frolics Challenge.
