Okay, I know...we just hit November. You may think it's too early to be thinking Christmas, but when it comes to crafting, it's never too early! Wait, I take that back. Those gals who make their Christmas cards in June have got to be crazy! lol (jk if you are one of them - wink)
Anyways...just know that November's posts will likely include both Fall and Christmas. :)
Here's a cute lil' thing I made to have on display at my 5year Party:
It's a 3x3 card and it was so fun to make!
I often get inspiration and use it, make it my own. But then, there are the times I'm so excited, because I didn't get the idea from anywhere else but my own brain. You laugh. I celebrate! It means I can still think...even with my crazy-mommy brain that sometimes feels like mush! lol. ;-)
Sooooo....you wanna know what I did, don't you?
Card base: Crumb Cake cardstock cut 3x6, fold in half
Snow Scene: Cut (2) scallop rectangles (Whisper White, Bashful Blue) out with the Big Shot and our new Clearlit die. I proceeded to tear the white rectangle to make it look like a snow bank, then attached it directly to the blue layer. Applied dazzling diamonds glitter to the torn edge to give the illusion of sparkly snow...and because I *heart* dazzling diamonds. ;-)
Trees: Cut (1) larger Old Olive and (2) smaller Pear Pizzaz trees out using the Big Shot and "Merry Details" sizzlit. I colored the trunks with my Chocolate Chip marker, and applied the smaller 2 directly to the cardstock, and the middle one...well, of COURSE it's up on a dimensional. Cuz I *heart* dimensionals. :)
What about that red bling? Wellllll....it's one of our (awesome deal - $4.95 for 150) adhesive-backed Rhinestones, colored with a red Sharpie marker! :)
Oh, and the red layer behind the scalloped snowscape is my favorite red....Cherry Cobbler!
Well, what do you think?
The Small Print - this time, I'm not going to repeat the ingredients - it's all in the info above! :)
Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a GREAT day! :)
