Happy weekend! It was another chilly day yesterday and we are to have some snow and rain today. The only consolation is that tomorrow it’s supposed get up into the 50’s! What a nice day I had at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store! The Card Class was great and everyone had a fun time! The night group is always a great group and they all had their cards finished in two hours! After work I headed over to Heather’s to help her take some of the Christmas presents over to Geroge’s house. He was out to dinner with friends so I got Heather on a Friday night! We laughed and watched some YouTube videos before I headed home around 12:30. Today Renee has a No-Frills Crop so I will get to see some of my ladies! I also have the pleasure of attending my old job’s Holiday Party! I’m going to pick up Danielle and head over later on tonight! It will be fun to see everyone again!
I just had to share this picture of Daniel and Tristan, it was one of the ones that they choose for their Christmas card this year…
They are both just so cute! It looks like they should be in a children’s clothing ad! I know, I’m biased! 😀
Today I have a quick simple card to share with you that uses a spring themed die for a Christmas card! I used the Hero Arts Floral Border with Frame Fancy Die to cut out the center of a piece of Herb Garden. To make some of the flowers and butterflies stand out I used my Versa-Mark Pen and some Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder! I die cut the merry using the Hero Arts Merry Stamp & Cut Photopolymer Set from a piece of Gold Mirror Card and two pieces of Black 110lb. They are adhered to each other with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. The frame is then held over a piece of Chinese Red and the merry is put into place so that I could determine where to heat emboss the Christmas. I adhered the red to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Some 3M Foam Tape pieces are added to the back of the frame and it’s adhered to the red. I adhered the merry to the card with Multi-Matte Medium and used some more to add a bunch of Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins! I do love that Floral Frame, especially with the small heat embossed sections and think that it makes for pretty Christmas card! I hope that you enjoyed my card for today! Thank you for stopping by! Have a sensational Saturday! 🙂
