Another week of Christmas Card work ahead fun over at Christmas Card Challenges! :D I am SO busy right now with other things, just a precursor for what's coming at Christmas time, right? I shudder at the thought! lol.
This week is anything goes - a favorite for Christmas time and me. Christmas cards are my favorite to make and I love to make all kinds.
This fun little card is stamp up from the SSS Candy Cane Christmas set. I die cut the banner it's on using MFT Jumbo Stitched Fishtail Flags. The panel behind it is the inside of a die cut from MFT's Peek A Boo Wonky Windows. (I cut the window for another card and used the "scrap" on this card.) One more layer in the clip is a strip of vellum that I trimmed with pinking shears on the bottom edge hanging out. The main panel laying over the red card panel is sponged with Cracked Pistachio distress inks then a water spritzed stencil (MFT Large Circle Burst) was pressed down over it to pick up some of the sponged ink and leave a very subtle pattern behind. So subtle, that you can barely see it in this picture. Ha! The twine is Lawn Trimmings Green Sparkle. By the by, I've decided that (for me) Lawn Fawn ties up the best. And I am SO picky about how my bows look. Probably kinda stupid because no one could tell, but I want the things to look a certain way. It's in my DNA makeup - I can't help it.
Well that is all for me today! Off to do some more packing for the impending move. (Every time I think about it, I almost get sick. Yay! Good times! haha!)
Thanks SO much for stopping by to visit and for hanging with me while I'm barely posting and sharing projects! I know I'll be back into it full steam ahead once we get settled. And I'm sure I will be more than ready for that once we've gone through all the mayhem!
