Tomorrow is December!
Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. Eventhough Maria was not able to come home this year (this was the first year without her), I did have a lovely Thanksgiving dinner with friends; and the guys even got to play football in the unusually warm weather.
Well, I guess, now the rush is on for many to complete their Christmas cards. (I know that there are many of you out there who have started and completed your cards in the summer!) But for those of you who still haven't figured out a design, I hope you will get some inspiration here.
I've finally put together this Christmas card! Yeah! It did take awhile to come up with the completed card, but I am happy to say that I am pleased with the way it turned out. I used a clear, glitter, ornament sticker, and stuck it to plain white card stock. I added a few stitches in dark metallic red and green and layered it onto Memory Box and gold paper. Then everything was layered onto the shimmery, fancy, white card stock that we all love to use and call "the wedding paper". It was finished off with peel off sayings. (The scan doesn't show the glitter, but believe me, it REALLY sparkles.)
This really turned out elegant, yet it's very simple to make! You should be able to make at least a few of these! Good luck!
