As I was cleaning off my craft table, I found an assortment of unused card bits and decided to put them together to create a card. Sometimes when I’m stamping I change my mind (can any of you imagine that hahaha) and then I end up with a nice die cut or greeting that I know that I can use SOMETIME…but it seems like all of those bits and pieces pile up and I feel like I’m going to be buried in them. So, I actually used a greeting and a frame die cut on this card that I’ve been pushing around for about a month. I may even be able to wipe down my window ledge and table if I keep at this cleaning thing…except…my preorder from the upcoming January to April Mini catalog arrived yesterday. SQUEEL, SQUEEL!!! OMG, Christmas came early.
So this card started with the stamped greeting and black die cut frame. It was really pretty simple to cut one of the pretty poinsettia patterned paper from the Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper, and real red matts for the DSP and the greeting, then layer it all onto a Thick Basic White card base. The greeting is popped up with dimensionals.
- Basic White Thick Base 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″
- Real Red 5 1/4″ x 4″
- Boughs of Holly DSP 3 3/4″ x 5″
- Black Frame 3″ x 3″
- Real Red 2″ x 1 3/8″
- Basic White 1 7/8″ x 1 1/4″
The Evening Evergreen ink from the front greeting is repeated on the inside and on the envelope.
Yesterday, I was able to watch my 6th grade grandson Bryson’s basketball game, wow, have they improved since last year. They won both games and played really hard. We celebrated with lunch afterwards at McDonald’s (the ball player’s choice). Today is a church Christmas program and then a birthday celebration for grandson Huntley. I have to get in as many of the grandkids events as possible before we do the snow bird thing and head to Florida. I’m excited to go to our new winter hide out, but I do miss seeing my family. I’m really spoiled with all of my kids living in the area. This makes me really appreciate them.
I hope that you enjoyed this quick card. Continue visiting the Roost for some peeks at the new product!
