My next door neighbour Lisa, from Dreaming of Creativity came over last night and we visited and made cards. She finished 4 cards for her children's teachers. I managed to get 3 finished...but I am a slow card maker!
I tell you, I should do it more often! When I sit and create by myself, I am lucky to get one card done in an evening...but with a friend over, I do better. It is quite surprising cuz as you may have guessed, I am quite the Chatty Cathy!!!
We started around 7:45 and finished up just after 11:00 pm. I think it was ability to bounce my ideas off someone else and hear their feedback that helped me create a little faster than my normal snail's pace..
Here is the first. It is a quick and easy card...no coloured image...but it was just what I needed to get some more cards finished and added to the Christmas stack. I found a sheet of these brightly coloured chipboard ornaments. I fell in love with them and there was enough on the one sheet to make 5 cards. I didn't worry about depth on the card as these are more for the hand delivered stack.
The corners and the snowflake are heavily stickled but it barely shows in the first photo. Here is a bit of an angled shot to show you the glimmer...I even added a bit to the doily!
Card Base - Michaels Reflections Kraft corrugated card and envelope
Designer Paper - MME, Merry
Cardstock - Kraft from my stash
Doily - Dollar Store, from my stash I have had this pack for a couple of years. There is still a huge stack left as they were on clearance for 25 cents so I bought about 10 packages. I always use 3 together...stapling them together first..
Punch - Martha Stewart , Snowflake from my stash (already punched out of tiny scraps and stored in my albums)
Die - Spellbinders Lattice Accents - from my stash of already cut friom scraps dies.
Diamond - Dollarama bling from my stash
Twine- from my stash
