Well, I ended up going to the mall with Heather yesterday morning. However, it was not the quick trip that I was promised. We ended up being out for about six hours, and after that I went over to her place and reformatted the hard drive in her computer. I came home, made my card, Andrew came by with pizza for dinner and we watched my all time favorite holiday movie, Love Actually. Andrew hadn’t seen the movie before and enjoyed it. So, yes, you guessed it, my Christmas cards are still not done. There’s always tonight! LOL!
Today, I have a card for you that uses a bunch of new stuff from the upcoming 2015 Occasions Catalog that you can order from starting on January 6th…
Today’s card begins with a base of Whisper White Card Stock, I covered the entire front with a piece of Blackberry Bliss. On top of that is a piece of Brushed Silver Card Stock that is cut out with a stitched rectangle from Simon Says Stamp. The main panel of the card is a piece of Smoky Slate, I used the stitched rectangles and stitched circles from Simon. Behind the circle is a piece of paper from the new Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack. The Smoky Slate panel is adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The new Butterfly Thinlits cut out a piece of Blackberry Bliss. The butterfly’s wings are bent and it’s adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Some Dazzling Details goes down the length of the body for a little definition. My “hello” is also cut out from Blackberry Bliss using the Hello You Thinlits Dies and is adhered to the card using 2-Way Glue. I finished it off with some Moonshine Sequins, also from Simon Says Stamp, adhered with Crystal Effects. I’m really loving the Adventure Bound DSP Stack, but I think I’ve said that before. I would actually like a whole stack of just the birch! I hope you enjoyed my card for today as much as I enjoyed making it. I love a simple card with a lot of impact. I’m a happy boy this week because it’s a short one, only three days! I hope that your week is short and good, too. Thanks for stopping by, and a have a magnificent Monday! 🙂
