I am very happy to say that here it is February 3rd and I already have three Christmas cards made for 2014. Yay me! Last season I was so far behind making cards that I had myself all stressed out as it got closer to the middle of December. I was frantically making cards and I don't like to work under pressure like that so I promised myself that this year I would do things differently.
Today I've got a card for the Festive Friday challenge where I was inspired by all the glitter in the inspiration photo as well as the Sketch For You to Try challenge.
I used the super pretty glimmer paper from SU. I thought it was gold but I think it's really a cross between copper and gold. I first inked up the sentiment in gold and it didn't look right so I did it again in copper and it matched fine. But the cord is gold and the organdy ribbon is gold and I think they match too so I don't know what color this is!
I used some embossing paste to jazz up the tag with raised circles then I dusted some Perfect Pearls on them for a little shimmer. It doesn't show up in the photo, but it's there!
As I'm writing this blog post I'm watching the Super Bowl. I hope your team won (as long as it's not the Broncos)! LOL! I know I'm in the minority rooting for the Seahawks (as I'm reminded all the time by my fellow blogging friends on Facebook) but being from Boston I couldn't possibly root for them!
Thanks for stopping by!
