You are probably asking yourself why in the world did I make a Christmas card in May. Well, I was working on making my card for CASEing Tuesday and started looking through my retired stamp sets. I saw the Christmas sets and Christmas designer series paper and thought, why not?!
Here is our inspirational card for this week:
I used a few retiring products on this card. The retiring products are: Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler oval paper and is from Be Merry designer series paper, banner and snowflakes are made with the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. I used the Holly Embossing Folder on the Garden Green paper to give it some texture.
In the first picture, for some reason, the glimmer paper is showing up as white paper. It didn't matter how I moved my lights around or what angle I took the picture. I couldn't get the glimmer paper to show up. You can, however, see it in the above picture. I used the Seasonal Layers Thinlits to cut out the snowflakes. I had to use the precision plate along with going back and forth at least 4 times to go through the glimmer paper. Stampin' Up! has new glimmer paper in the new annual catalog that will cut with our framelits/thinlits. Yay!
To make this project you will need the following products:
- cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
- cut at 4 x 5 1/4"
Be Merry Designer Series Paper
- cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/4"
- cut at 4" x 5 1/4"
- cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/4"
Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper
- cut at 3/4" x 2 1/2"
- cut at 1 3/4" x 4 1/2"
I stamped the sentiment on the Vellum paper with Garden Green ink. You are going to have to let it dry for a little bit or use your heating tool to dry it. I then took the Multi Purpose Liquid Glue and put a small amount on a clear block and used a sponge to tap it on the back of the Vellum. This way you will not see the glue through the Vellum. I popped up the sentiment and banner with Stampin Dimensionals.
Mark and I were busy over the weekend working on our deck. I really like how it turned out. My favorite thing to do is to sit on my deck, with my coffee and read my bible. It is so calming and relaxing. Here are some pictures of our deck.
I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day. I was able to talk to both of my girls and my mom, so it was wonderful day for me.
I love this picture of my mom and me. It was taken when I was in Michigan last month for her 85th birthday and to see Erica. Mark is going to see Erica this weekend, so I get to craft all weekend long! I can't wait! I will miss Mark dearly, but I am also excited to be able to play in my studio as long as I want.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a fabulous week!
