Holiday Card :: cps 85
When things finally got back to normal this afternoon, I was still in the mood to sew, heck, I even took the time to change the color of the thread - twice!
I do like the results. I put a lot of thought into this card using this weeks Card Positioning Systems (cps) sketch. I love the Papertrey Ink papers, but I only have the swatches so this was a good sketch to put them to use. Also, I wanted to have the feel of using the ribbon like you would if you were wrapping a gift. Finally, that little christmas tree is adorable and it says "We wish you a Merry Christmas, we wish you a Merry Christmas, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!" How cool is that? I thought cutting it out and adding foam tape would add a bit of punch. One more thing, I was going to use red ribbon w/a pattern, but I went for the monochromatic look. Love that.
I also entered this card in Steph's Stamptoberfest Happy Holidays Stamp Challenge on 2Peas.
Thanks for looking ... here's what I used:
patterned paper: Papertrey Ink
stamp: Studio G/Michaels $1
dry embossing: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots
