I hope you had a great weekend and your week is off to a fantastic start! Mine is going to be very busy with appointments and friends, so forgive me for being laconic in the next few posts, which is so hard for me to do. I'm usually blahblahconic!
As I mentioned the other day, my bloggie friend Coni came to visit. She was kind enough to gift me a stamp set which I used for this thank you card for her. The "Say It With Flowers" set is from Pink Fresh Studio. It comes with a die as well as the flowers and several sediments. Thank you again, Coni!
You might notice the "rustic" edges of the die-cut flower panel. That's because I really biffed the stamping at first, but rather than throw it away, I turned it over and used the other side. The pretty ridged aqua paper has been in my stash since well into the last century. The silvery tone on the aqua flowers is caused by a thick winking with a fresh WOS pen. The sediment is from PTI's "Bold and Beautiful" set.
Another Christmas card for the ol' Stasharoo. I took my cue from Less Is More where the brief is to pierce our project.
I pierced my card with a needle and silver thread to make the ornament hanger. As I pulled the thread through, I called up a memory of a thousand years ago and made French knots. It turned out pretty cool in real life, if you don't mind me saying so.
Here's the messy and lumpy reverse side, which is why I popped up the front panel with foam tape.
- Cardz for Galz: Christmas or winter.
- CHNC Challenge #344: Anything goes; option of gingerbread.
- The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge: Anything goes.
- Less Is More: Pierce your project.
Enjoy your day! No, seriously, enjoy! LITS!*
