Good Morning lovely visitor, hope you have a nice cup of something warm & let's have a little chat. A bit too cold to swing on the front porch, but we can pull up a chair by the fireplace and enjoy some coffee or latte, or whatever fits your fancy.
I saw this lovely card at Selma's Stamping Corner when I was trying to remember how to use the Memory Box Heart Canopy for the tree on the card today. Just went back trying to find the specific card so I could be sure to thank Selma for my inspiration, and My Goodness Gracious, I got lost just wandering around looking at her wonderful art. I've got to have some time to really enjoy her blog, but first I have some commenting to do, 4 on-line classes to catch up, and get this card scheduled to post! Thanks Selma for some marvelous inspiration & can't wait to return for a long lovely browse.
- Memory Box Twiggy Tree (98143) die cut from silver mirror paper (a piece that I've been trimming from for a bit, so I'm calling this one a snippet too. I used all of the bits on the snowflakes from the Rudolph Peace card. So the tiny bits have gone into the trash, and I'll have to hunt up another piece of silver.
- MB Heart Canopy (98283) using a white K&Company 12x12 Specialty Paper. (it's white with light silver floral motifs, and this pack is a NBUS - also VOS)
- lightweight red glitter paper(snippet) taped on the back. Tried to zoom to show how these red hearts glitter, but it blurred.
- Layers adhered to black glitter paper (center removed with a square die to save layers).
- EK Success punch on the corners (another boo-boo. I tried to use a pretty MS corner punch which worked great on 3 corners; messed up on the 4th, and basically chewed the corner. I should know better than to try this since the punch was cutting through the white & red glitter papers). Used snippets of the red glitter to cut cover up corners, added a pearl to decorate.
- red velvet paper c/stock (from inside of a box but it diecut well) used to cover the white square card base. Again removed the part under the motifs & used it on the Rudolph Owls card. Used a tiny snippet of this c/s to punch the hearts - and surprisingly, this punched quite well. This was an old Paper Studio punch and I was amazed that it punched out as the velvet covering on the card backing is a bit thick. Bet the MS punch wouldn't have done so!
Think this will be for Sweetie as he hasn't seen it yet. Other than my chewed up corner, I liked this card. Hope you will too.
I managed to use up some more snippets on this card, so it will be submitted to Pixie's Crafty Snippets Playground, Week 109. Since this is a scheduled post, I will edit when the post is live, to finish the linking process. Thanks for your visit & have a lovely day. Hugs.
