Yep it's another Christmas card today! This time I used the Cuttlebug Cut and Emboss Snowflake. I love this snowflake!
Do you recognize the quilt looking paper? It is the same paper I used on the stocking card from a few days ago. This will be another one I take to stamp club tonight for the challenge. Linda, aka LGuild, told me she doesn't like the paper and couldn't figure out what to do with it. Wait until she sees this card!! *okie laughs evilly* The red strip is the back side of the quilt print.
The sentiment is a Studio G stamp...at least I think it is. Of course it is unmounted so I can't go check the block and see.
And I bet you can guess that I pop dotted the matted snowflake. I tried not to, but some how that dang mounting foam ended up on the back of that mat and on the card while I wasn't looking! *okie wonders if her supplies have it out for her sometimes*
Here on the close-up you can see where I used a white Signo 153-UM pen to dot points on the snowflake. Sometimes just a few dots can really add a lot!
Oh and look at the lime green paper, I used my Stamp Up background stamp and Versamark ink to give the green a little interest.
I embossed the 1" red strip with a Cuttlebug snowflake border folder and then just added some faux stitching with the white gel pen.
This one was a simple card and was fast to make so I might have to make a few more depending on how many Christmas cards I need this year!
Well tonight is stamp club so not sure what I will have to post from there. Sometimes I don't get anything done because Linda, aka LGuild, is always arguing with me. I think she does it on purpose so she can get more done than I do!
Great card, I really love the paper. My BF and I end up laughing the whole time and dont ever get much done when we are together.ReplyDelete
