It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! We actually had a little snow on outside this morning when we woke up. Today I need to get some running around done. At least I finally got my Christmas cards finished and mailed yesterday.
Trying to get some of the cards I made ‘early’ posted on my blog before the holiday os over! This was a card I made for the December Creative Crew on SCS. The challenge was to incorporate newsprint/book print in your card. The base of the card is Riding Hood Red, I took a piece of the First Edition, stamped the outline poinsettia in Basic Black and the more solid image in Riding Hood Red. I layered this on Basic Black then to the card front. Next I took a piece of Lucky Limeade, cut into a banner, ran it through the Delicate Designs Embossing Folder, added a piece of Champagne Glimmer paper then added to the card front. I stamped the greeting in Lucky Limeade, punched with the Decorative Label punch and added to the card front using dimensionals. I stamped an additional flower on the newsprint – I did one in Riding Hood Red and one in Lucky Limeade (for the leaves), cute them out and layered onto the card front using dimensionals. I finished it off by coloring some Basic Pearls with the Gold Glimmer pen and adding to the center of the poinsettia.
Gee…what will I post once Christmas is over? Oh…that’s right…NEW STUFF!!!
