Hi everyone! I wanted to show you a card that I have have already designated to go to my Mom this Christmas! 🙂 She saves all of my creations that I send and this one should be of no exception (hopefully :))
I have to say that this is a NON-Stampin’ Up! stamp. It’s actually by Penny Black-I know! The other day I was in a craft store grabbing a few ornaments (for another craft that I will show you this weekend) I stumbled upon this cute stamp. It just screamed “MOM” to me.
I will say that I do NOT buy “other” stamps very often ’cause gosh darn just this one stamp was priced over $11 (ok, I’ll quit crying, it was on sale for 40% off but, it was still over $7). I loved this one though!
I used plenty of glitz on this card. I used the polka dot embossing folder, die cut the oval, added lots of glitter, AND used my precious silver glimmer paper too!! I used my Stampin’ Up! markers for coloring (soft sky, pink piroette, and garden green-with this color I used my blender pen with the ink). These are not traditional Christmas colors but, it worked with my images. I wanted softness. I believe I achieved that.
What about you? Do you make an extra special card for anyone on your list? Leave me a comment below–I’d love to hear it!!
