Hey there blog friends! I know I have made this card before but I just couldn’t help myself. I am so pleased with this design, and when I took this card into work it caused quite a stir which prompted me to make it one of my Christmas Card Designs for 2011.
I added some stickles to the holly leaves to give them some sparkle and sponged some soft gray around the sentiment panel.
Here’s a closer look at the whole card…
Supplies used for this card:
Paper – The Paper Studie – Doodle Ornaments
Clear Round Embellishments – Bought online from Pink Hedgehog
Flower – EK Dimensional Punch – Dahlia
Border Punch – Martha Stewart
Stamp - Stampendous! Christmas Wishes
Happy Halloween to everyone!
Good Morning! Wow we had a wild night here last night! Our phone, cable and Internet was out of commission all evening because we were have quite a wind storm! It was no big deal tho, my son Andrew and his Girlfriend Jen came over for supper and we had a nice visit
I made this card for this week’s Play Date Cafe challenge. The challenge is to use Kraft/Taupe…Flesh…Cadet Blue for your creation. Here is this week’s challenge: http://theplaydatecafe.blogspot.com/2011/10/play-date-cafe-challenge-pdcc105.html
Here is what I came up with…
Don’t you just love that rolled ribbon rose? I made this at Carousel Rubber Stamps, one of our local craft stores. They had a weekend event where they were hosting demo’s for us and a lady was there teaching how to make these roses and of course I was all over that! Lord only knows if I would be able to make another one now tho! LOL!!
Here’s a look at the whole card…
I love the colors of this card, but I just had to get some pink in there! The sentiment is by Verve and I used the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Ironwork Accents die for the tag.
Well that’s it for this post. I have the day off work today and I have several more cards ready to post as well as a freebie Christmas digi stamp that I would like to share with you if I can figure out how to get it posted properly! (Tony’s at work today and he is my tech support)
Enjoy your day!
