Hellooooo everyone! Did you think I went away for good? We have finals right now, students defending their theses, final projects. It's nuts around here right now and I don't think I even stepped foot into my stamp room for about a month. So today I finally made myself take time off and go in there. Being away so long, it took me about 3 hours to make one card. I cannot let that happen again.
So today I am here with a Christmas card. OK so I'm totally ruining the surprise because it will be Kathy's Christmas card. But I never CAN hold a secret. So, the highlight of this card is the Christmas stocking die. I'm very excited about it...it is beautiful. And I chose to use all sparkly paper. However, I must warn you. You know that American Arts POW glitter paper I love so much? It's great...but NOT for cutting out intricate dies. You really do need a heavier card stock for that. This stocking die (Dee's Dies) is actually two dies--one background die and the other the intricate die. The edging is Paper Trey and the sentiment is Stampin Up. I also attached a few Swarovski Crystals...hard to see in the photo but this card has ALOT of sparkle for my sparkly friend (Closeup attached). I also "attached" the stocking with a bit of twine. I was really trying to make Kathy's card as perfect as it could be--had alot of artistic block, but somehow today I got the inspiration. Well I hope to be back a few more times...and once school is over, I will be back alot more. Enjoy your weekend everyone.
I'll be entering this card into the I love Christmas Challenge (Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge)
