SUO Challenges 83

As far as Monday’s go yesterday wasn’t too bad. Work was bearable and it was nice and quiet when I got home. It was really cold here but it’s supposed to warm up later in the week. I spoke to a friend last night on the phone, something that I don’t really do as most people just usually text these days. I also got to sit at the craft desk for a while and just play. We all know there is nothing I like more than that! Tomorrow is gym day and I am looking forward to that too!

Today’s post is for the SUO Challenges Design Team. This time around we ask you to use your favorite greeting. I didn’t even have to think about this one, I knew right away just what I would use. The base of today’s card is Cherry Cobbler Card Stock. I used some Brushed Gold Card Stock and the Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the background. The little snowflakes are from the “Vintage” Northern Frost Sizzlit Decorative Strip Die and are cut out from Whisper White. I stamped my greeting using the “Vintage” Heart of Christmas Stamp, heat embossed it with some Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Emboss Powder and rounded the corners. Behind it is a piece of Cherry Cobbler that I cut out with the Deco Labels Collection Framelits Dies and used the Essential Paper-Piercing Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool to pierce just the top and bottom. A piece of Champagne Glimmer Paper punched out with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch goes in the middle and Stampin’ Dimensionals hold the pieces to the card. I really do love the Heart of Christmas stamp and was sad to see it go with last year’s Holiday Catalog. I was also happy when I found my Norther Frost Strip Die, I had forgotten that I had it! Thanks very much for stopping by to see my Design Team card for the SUO Challenges blog. Speaking of blog don’t forget to to head over and check out the other designers projects and enter yours in the gallery. Have a good day! 🙂
