Did I mention I’m in the Christmas mode and I’m making ahead for next year. Somehow I can’t bring myself to make winter cards in the summer, my heart is just not in it. I receive orders for Christmas cards about mid-November and if I don’t have some done up already, then I panic.
I still have a couple of these music sheets left. I just love the added touch they give to these cards. A bit vintage but not way too vintage. I’m not really a lacy, buttony, frilly, swirly type personality and it’s difficult for me to do a really vintage card.
Here’s that sweet snowflake die from PPRS and their scalloped circle die which I cut the middle out with one of the layers and used it for something else. The snowflake looks at home nestled in there and layered on top of that piece of embossed gold mirror paper. I stamped that little bow with the sweet Snow Flake insert stamps they have that just fit perfect into the snow flake. I want to use the rest of them yet this year. So while you are putting your Christmas decorations away, I will likely still be stamping Christmas cards for 2015. After completing the card it still looked a bit lacking …ah, Washi tape, I love you. A bit translucent, a bit of pattern, a lot of PUNCH. Perfect.
