Ooooh, I am SO excited about my card today! I got to play with some wonderful colors, use a bunch of stamp sets and incorporate some fun embellies! Woohoo! First, I was able to use Broni’s CTD colors for this week:
as well as the Just Add Ink sketch 42:
to make my vintage Santa card:
It looks SO much better in person! My only issue was the “pleating”---it is not as even as I would like, but that blingy vintage silver double-layer snowflake hopefully will bedazzle everyone into not even noticing:
I had gotten a bunch of MS glitter on sale quite a while ago and one of the colors was “vintage silver”…..and it is SO pretty! I used a snowflake punch as well as the Northern Frost diecut snowflake strip to make two snowflakes. I coated them with Versamark, added Heat & Stick powder, then drizzled that yummy glitter all over and re-heated for a few seconds to make it all stick! Wowza! I am loving it! Here’s the inside, keeping with the vintage theme:
I also used a Color Spritzer as well as daubered the edges of my image for a more vintage look, and the “ruflle” was crimped with a crimper! You should see my desk…..it’s a mess, but what FUN! TFL today!!! If you have any questions about anything, leave me a note!
