I was playing with my Neighbourhood wheel the other day as I don’t use it as often as I should. I decided to come up with two distinct occasions – well, with Halloween and Christmas on the horizon I decided that these were the two occasions to go with!
My first creation was the Christmas one:
This card uses a Bordering Blue card base and an Always Artichoke layer. I wheeled the Neighbourhood wheel in basic black and watercoloured in with various colours. I added some snowflakes from Merry & Bright in and around the houses and also added some holiday lights using the lights from Mr. Twigster.
I added a torn and glittered piece of whisper white cardstock along the bottom and then some Riding Hood Red ribbon.
On top, I added a round tab punch and a silver star. I also added a bit of faux stitching with my white gel pen for good measure. And now, for the next one:
The card base is basic black and layered with Elegant Eggplant and Confetti white. On the Confetti white, I wheeled the Neighbourhood wheel and watercoloured with various colours. I grabbed my thin Sharpie and tried to make the birds into bats (not so great, but I tried!). And, I used the My Way (arrow) punch to make a fence. The pumpkins are from the Family Accessories and the saying is from All Holidays.
This was a fun personal challenge – to use a wheel and make it fit two different seasons. Give it a try!
