Hello everyone. I'm posting quickly to say that I've been busy. I am donating some cards and tags to a craft fair at our church. Here is one I made 6 of, to make a card set. I love Basic Grey, don't you? Their papers are so wonderful to work with. They make everything I craft look amazing.
I stamped and heat embossed the greeting in white on this red paper. Next I cut out all the blue pieces to go behind. The card base is actually orange peel textured by Bazzil Basics. I stamped the Envelope Pattern in the background. I love that stamp!!!
Next I layered on the papers and added the sentiments on top with a little foam adhesive. I didn't want too many embellishments because I didn't know if others might need to mail these cards. That can get tricky if the card is too bumpy.
Here is a close up. I don't know if you can see it very well, but I added some tiny diamond gems as well. They add some pretty sparkle.
Here is the sentiment and a little holly leaf that I stamped inside. I like to add little details. :-)
I even stamped a little holly on each envelope. I colored the holly with markers to make the berries red and the leaves green.
I hope you all are having fun getting ready for the holiday season. Next up for us is a very special birthday for our girls. After that is Thanksgiving. I love that holiday. We have much to be thankful for in our family. Many blessings to all of you. Thanks for stopping by.
