Now I can't get it to lay down flat to photograph, even after having it pressed under some heavy stuff all night! I'm rather pleased with the card, probably because I just fell in love with this goofy little duck (Penny Black Caroling Duck) when I saw Sandra use it. The little guy is colored with copics; diecut with the new S/Binder Mat rectangles, as was the red glitter paper(snippet!) behind him. Sponged a bit of Vintage photo while still in the die. Debated on adding some white Flower soft to his hat (will try on next image.) The design papers are from a Paper Studio's small Christmas Mat Stack from a recent Hobby Lobby sale. Sentiment is from ODBD. (snippet), S/Binder diecut & sponged with Vintage photo. The first 2 times I stamped this image, thought I had not gotten a sharp stamping. After redoing it again, I looked at the stamp. The 'missing' part of the loop on Merry is on the stamp, wasn't my poor stamping! (Sigh of relief!) Red glitter snowflake -another snippet- is an older S/binder die. I have lined the inside with some Paper Studio paper - also a H/Lobby Christmas sale item from an 8 1/2 x 11 pack. The lining may be why my card won't stay flat. I might place a white die cut inside center, to stamp a Christmas message. Don't think it will show up too well on the patterned paper. Now I'll dash over to the Playground, since I have several snippets on this one. (Hey if it's piled on my desk and I can use, it doesn't even make it to a snippet folder!!). Might also fit the bill of fare over at Any Die Will Do
at Penny Black and More. This will be my 2nd entry for this challenge. As I've said here previously, when I cut a mat, I also cut out the interior since it won't show. I nearly messed up with that little trick this time, which is why the duck isn't centered exactly as it probably should be. I had to place him over far enough that the backside of the focal image was not so visible. Lesson learned! Had already done the matting when I decided to try the fold card. Ya'll have a wonderful and blessed day. See you later.
