PHEW! What a week! Been busy busy BUSY all day every day! Everything from stamp classes to nursing a chest bug of some sort to appointments for the kids to deliveries … you name it!! I made a card on Thursday for class Friday morning (cause that's how I ROLL these days *lol*) and totally LOVE how it turned out. I started off in a panic because it was 7:00 pm and I wanted to design 2 cards … but also wanted to go to bed. That is the WORST frame of mind to be in when trying to create so I gave my head a shake, took a few deep breaths and calmed down! I then figured I'd start with a "product" rather than a "layout" and go from there. I looked at the delicious Fancy Frost Specialty DSP … nope … wasn't feeling it … but I WAS feeling texture. I rummaged through my drawer of embossing folder and WHAM! Spotted a new one I bought but hadn't used yet … "Holly". Well … about 10 minutes later I was done. I just went with the flow and it all came together (and is my new favourite card *lol*). Check it out …
I wanted a clean, simple sentiment or image. Scrolled through my sets and fell upon Be Jolly, By Golly (seriously??)
Punched the sentiment out with the (retired) 2 1/2" circle punch (quicker than using my framelits). Just needed a few embellishments. I found the new burlap ribbon pairs nicely with the copper … so on that went (with tear 'n tape). Then added a bit of copper thread (I use a bit of tape on the back of the piece, stick one one of the thread to the tape and then make circles with the thread. I use another piece of tear 'n tape to "sandwich" the thread so it stays put!) I Popped the sentiment up on dimensionals.
Needed one last pop. Found my Copper Foil Sheets ….
… (currently we can't order them - they were so popular they sold out … SU will let us know when they can be ordered again. I grabbed my Holly Berry Punch …
Wa-low! Quick, clean, cute. LOVE!
Gotta run - dinner is ready! Thanks for popping in - have a stampy evening!
