How’s the Christmas Spirit at your house? Y’all have your tree up? oh man, why don’t I have my tree up yet?! There’s a story there but you don’t want to hear it! funny, not funny! Tonight is the big Lighted Christmas parade. I think they moved it up a week thinking it’d be warmer…ha…it’s cold and after 17 inches of snow last weekend…we still have snow! It will be pretty anyway!
I left my pictures dark today hoping the red would capture better. I tried anyway! lol
I started out thinking a plain, tone on tone card but that glitter cardstock found it’s way onto my card somehow! Those sneaky elves.
This is a very basic die cut and glue card…seems like every year I have to have one super glam card….time will tell if this is it for this year! lol
I only used one layer of the Poinsettia Circle Frame, one cut of the Poinsettia Blooms die except for the berry branch sprinkly spronkly things… I cut that die 3 times and the individual poinsettia that comes in the center of the die, I cut six times and layered it on the poinsettias around the frame.
The only things that are on mounting tape are the JOY and to the world sentiments. The JOY die is part of the poppystamps Tidings of Joy stamp and die set. The JOY die in this set is really a backer die but I didn’t like it stamped so I die cut each letter of the JOY separately and trimmed them to fit together just like the die but the letters were defined then. I put the letters back into the die to hold them in place and put the mounting tape to hold them together. Slick!
I really love Poinsettias…every time I see a new one I want it. I haven’t even purchased a real one yet for the house! I’m feeling so behind. At least I have cards made though! YAY!
OK – one more picture and I’ll leave you to get back to your cardmaking!
Thank you all for stopping by! I’ll be back! I have more cards ready to post! 😀
