Had a FAB night with a grey group of seven ladies last night. Seriously. What is it about women getting together with women that just "resets" everything?? LOVE my ladies!
Today I wanted to share my new all-time favourite Christmas card. Yes. I know. My favourite is ALWAYS my most recent. I figure this one will be my favourite until some time tomorrow, when I create another one *lol*. I'm so transparent hee hee.
Ready? I'll start with Version I … which I loved ...Here it is …
I LOVED it … until I looked at it for an hour. After an hour I decided I strongly LIKE it but it just needed a LITTLE something more .. nothing too crazy … just a LITTLE … but what??? … and then it came to me … it needed some Christmas Pine ...
"Tamara! Where do you come UP with these fantastic ideas??!!", I hear you cry. Well … I spend a lot of time doing R&D (Research & Development). A LOT of time. (** R&D actually translates into Facebook and Pintrest … don't judge me … it works lmao!)
This card started OFF when I saw this lovely card made by Cat Christella …
Now for the deets on my version.
Standard card base 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" Whisper White
Whisper White top layer of 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"
Basic Grey layer of 3 3/4" x5"
Basic Grey, Plaid and Whisper White Stitched Ovals made using the NEW Stitched Shapes framelits (A must own and only $40 for all these …)
The pine is stamped in Smoky Slate from the Christmas Pines Set (25% off until the end of November 2016)
I added clear Wink of Stella to the ornaments and the entire banner. I was surprised the black didn't bleed, as I had stamped the sentiment in Memento ink … but I was happy. The little pop of dazzle, along with the single rhinestone rely makes the card.
Love. Love. LOVE!
I THOUGHT I was done designing for my SAS … alas, I have deeply fallen OUT of love with one of the cards I designed (which I haven't shared yet). Pop in again soon to see my "fallen from grace" card along with its replacement. Until then, have a super stampy Saturday. Thanks for doing by :) xo
