I am still working on using up that envelope of card kits I made up. Hope you are not getting too bored with them...
I want to get them all finished and put away in the finished cards boxes, as if I do not, then it is just one more thing that is a weird size to move. Although I do not need to start packing for a couple of months, I have started collecting boxes for the craft room. I need small boxes as everything in there is so darn heavy! Paper weighs so much as you all know!
So I have cleared a little spot and there is a tower of smallish boxes in varying sizes to suit my paper stash sizes. Bad enough needing so many different ones to fit 12x12 and 8x8 scrapbookpapers, 81/2 x 11 cardstock and the litany of embellies, flowers, brad, etc, etc. I have decided there will be no room for weird, odd sized things.
I sent a few days sorting everything this month and put all the wee odd bits into cardboard boxes from Michaels. They are shoebox sized and I tried to create more card kits from them. I had lots of dividers so set it up as one kit per divider. Anything not already filed in those shoeboxes needs made up of given away by January!
Enough waffle...here is my card for today. Used a vanilla tent fold base and added another of the red damask embossed card pieces. The green card is a swiss dot look EF and your probably remember the cream embossed snowflakes from my last post.
I went over the embossed design again with clear Wink of Stella and it has given that two toned faded shimmery look again. The Rejoice sentiment is a rub on...Bo Bunny methinks. It was from a huge kit of Bo Bunny supplies that my local scrapobook store had on an amazing special offer at the Xmas Open House last year. First time I have used it so a NBUS for sure!
It was hard to get a decent photo as I foolishly took the photo at night! Here is a bit of a closeup of the WOS on the cream embossed card. I know the photo is a bit blown, but i think you can still see the WOS shimmer...
A few gems from my stash to hilight the snowflake,s and a snippet of candy cane twine makes another Christmas card finished today!
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
