Happy Monday of a short week! How was your Sunday? Mine was spent trying to catch up! I also had to run into Manhattan last night to see a friend and there were way too many people in there! The sidewalks were packed full and the train was worse than during rush hour! I couldn’t even take any pictures. Manhattan this close to Holidays is not the best place to be if you are not a fan of crowds! LOL!
I wanted to mention that two of my cards were Favorites on Split-Coast! My card for the Control Freaks Blog Tour was a Gallery Favorite and my card for the WOW White on White Paper Players Challenge was a CAS Favorite! Thank you very much to the peeps at Split-Coast for choosing my cards! 🙂
I was looking around yesterday and I came across this week’s Just Add Ink challenge. This time they ask you to just add Christmas! I had made this card for a very good friend which is sort of a CASE of another card that I made a few weeks ago. I really love the colors so I wanted to post it and this was the perfect excuse! The base of the card is Crumb Cake Card Stock. My background is a piece of Pool Party that I cut out with the Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die* and adhered it to the base with some 2-Way Glue. Next up is a snowflake that I cut out with the Festive Flurry Framelits Dies from a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper. My flag on the right consists of a piece of Bermuda Bay that I adhered a piece of the Silver Fancy Foil Designer Vellum* on top of. I used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch* to make my tag and stamped my greeting from the Christmas Messages Stamp Set in Pool Party and Bermuda Bay. A piece of Natural 5/8″ Chevron Ribbon* tied with some Whisper White Bakers Twine goes through the top. Along the bottom left are three pieces of Bermuda Bay that I punched out with the Chevron Border Punch and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A few random matte silver and silver sequins sprinkled across the card finish it off. I really love the colors and that Hexagon Hive Die is so much fun! Thank you for stopping by and visiting with me today! I really appreciate it! 🙂
