Just this past week readers shared their thrifty tips on how frugal they are when they craft and during life in general. After reading so many great comments it had me thinking how satisfying it is to find something, a left over perhaps from another part of my life that I am then able to use in crafting. My mind settled on some pretty, pretty lace cupcake liners I used for a gift quite some time ago. I had several of them left over and I used them on my card today. Those black cupcake liners, like most liners, have a curve. I used this to make an arch to highlight the JustRite stamps that I used for my Christmas Card. I just love the filigree look, I think it makes a stunning backdrop!! I ran my ribbon right behind the filigree since you can see through it.
I picked JustRite JB-08770 Christmas Joy as my focal image. It’s a tried and true sentiment from the JustRite Christmas Collection. I love the vertical oval and it matches several of my Spellbinders perfectly. For the oval medallion I layered Spellbinders Big Scalloped Ovals SM , then Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Ovals SM and lastly Spellbinders Classic Ovals SM. My image is colored with Copic Markers. I used the two cupcake wrappers by just folding them over the edge of my card and taping them on the back. I tried and tried to slather pearls all over this but my spidey sense just said no. Instead, three understated pearls on a cosage pin break up the strict symmetry.
How are you coming on your Christmas cards. I promise you, we’ll be there before you know it!! So how was my attempt to be frugal today?
