Well, I finally had time to "fun" stamp. It's been forever since I stamped just for fun. It seems I always have a project or two that I'm working on. I did the Color Challenge today over at SCS but the color combo (So Saffron, Bravo Burgandy, Handsome Hunter) was so awful, that I didn't want to post my card here. If you want to see it, check out my gallery at SCS. The link is on the left. The card I did want to post today, was made for no reason at all. I love when I get to do that, since it rarely happens! I was making some Christmas thank-you cards and had one left, so I decided to "bling" it up. I love the sparkly look of Swarovski crystals. They really do shine better than the plastic wanna-bes. So, here's my card:
I used the Cuttlebug Christmas Tree embossing folder. I have no idea what the real name is. I don't keep the packages they come in. I just love how simple and elegant it is. The white cardstock is a metallic paper from Stardreams. I think the color is called Opal. I just love how shiny this card is. I also used SU! Riding Hood Red and Kiwi Kiss. The Kiwi satin ribbon is also from SU! It is by far my most favorite ribbon right now. I just love how thick and velvety it is! Tomorrow I'll try and post our Christmas card and tell you my postal saga. Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.
