And it’s Monday again. I had a nice relaxing weekend, something I don’t usually do. I still managed to get some stuff done, not as much as I wanted to but it happens! Yesterday was semi-productive. I got the tree out up and now I need to find the decorations. I ran to BJ’s last night with Heather and then we went over to see Brian & Kim. Andrew stopped by too. Not a bad way to end the day! I can’t believe how fast Christmas is approaching. I need to get my cards out this week. Have you started or finished your cards yet?
Monday and it’s time for another Paper Players challenge. This week we have a theme challenge from Nance…
Hmm… a fancy holiday project to me means lots of glitz! I began today’s card with a piece of Whisper White Card Stock. My background is a piece of Basic Black that I heat embossed (I know, shocking!) the tree from the “Vintage” Christmas Lodge Stamp Set in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder. My frame is a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper that I cut with the Stitched Rectangles Dies along with a piece of Window Sheet. Before I adhered the Window Sheet to the frame I heat embossed the greeting from the “Vintage” Greetings of the Season Stamp Set in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum and put it in between the frame and Window Sheet. Some sequins are sprinkled on the black and I doubled up on the foam tape so they would be able to move around nicely. I like the way that the vellum obscures the sequins so it’s a little bit of a surprise when you shake the card and they all come up! I hope that you enjoyed my sparkly card for this week’s Paper Players challenge. Thanks for visiting and here’s to a very good Monday for us all! 🙂
