Hugs to you blog friends!!! I hope you are having a crafty holiday weekend. As promised, I’m back with a card. Of course this wasn’t possible without first sitting down to try to get the cobwebs from between my fingers – I’m rusty at this. It’s a joyous day though and I’m showering you all with love. What a glorious feeling to have new stamps and someone in mind for a pick me up in their mailbox (insert mischievous elf smile here). Even though I missed the release, Our Daily Bread Designs had the most yummy new Christmas stamps for their release this month – I’m sharing one with you today from the Snowy Blessings set (oh how I love tall skinny sentiments!).
On the corner of my desk I have bits and pieces of cards I want to make. Usually it’s one element that’s stuck in my mind and the rest falls in place when I make it. For months I knew I wanted to use this new D-Lite (single dies at a great price :-)), Spellbinders™ Flourish Trim as a vertical frame. It worked out perfectly for a holiday card. On top of it I layered a thin panel then popped up Spellbinders™ Decorative Labels Eight and finished by stamping my sentiment on Spellbinders™ Fancy Framed Tags One. Did you know that I’m a foam tape addict? Yep, I popped up the red layer, the combined cream and green print layer, the combined Flourish/Red/Candy Stripe print layer and finally the combined red labels eight/fancy framed tags layer – that makes four. Although this card works out just as well flattened down to one layer – if you’re iffy about layers, I encourage you to give it a try. It gives your cards just a little bit of umph! If you’re afraid of heights, then just try one or two layers :-) Any other foam tape addicts out there?
