Good morning, and this will be the first of several scheduled posts as I try to finish up Christmas cards and get them ready to mail. And keep up with the other chores & things that are being carried on at this time of the year. So without further ado, here's the card I'm sharing today:
I saw this card done by Carol, and thought it was just gorgeous. I want to try making one very similar, but in the meantime, here's the one I came up with. Thanks, Carol for the inspiration shared on your beautiful card. I was using up snippets, and the green glitter piece was a leftover(snippet) from trimming out behind a layered card. The Decorative Labels 8 framing was another c/s snippet that was almost not the right size. Finagling some creative positioning, I was able to use the c/s. I had previously punched a few MS punches out of an 8x8 sheet of this metallic matte paper. The gold ornament (snippet from this card), embossed with a Holly EF. The silver ornament was punched with an MS punch. This was from a piece of packaging in... (dare I say...some new underwear). I thought the silver card the items were wrapped around, would be good salvage. (channeling Mrs. A on this one). So I guess that could be called a snippet - well if I stretch the term snippet just a bit. Added some rhinestones & pearls because the gold & silver looked a bit plain once I adhered to the front. The ornament chains were just a sliver of the same gold used for the ornament, because I couldn't find the gold cord thread I intended to use as a hanger.
The ornament dp is from a 6x6 Christmas pack and the red card base cover is from a Colorbok 8x8 print pack - and was a bit of snippet too, just larger than the others I've used. But it WAS left from another card project!
Thanks for popping in to visit today. When this post goes live, I may dash back over to the Snippets Playground with it. There's still time for you to come & play with us, and the Head Pixie is offering the absolute cutest Penny Black stamp as a prize. She even has a card to show how it can be used. Hope to see you there, just bring along your snippety card & that's the ticket to join in for some fun and a chance to win this cute stamp. Hugs
Edit: Today we have SUNSHINE!!! As previously promised, this post is live on 12/10 (Tuesday), so now I can jump over to the Snippets Playground as I do have many snippets here as a ticket to play. This is my 3rd entry for Week 102, since I had to miss the Big 100 Anniversary. There's a very cute PBlack hedgie & duck stamp as the prize this week, so why not join in? Hope that you have a bit of sunshine where you are, and if not, at least that the ice is melting. More Hugs.
