CTD 118 & JAI 42


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…’s a mess, but what FUN!  TFL today!!!  If you have any questions about anything, leave me a note!
