Hello everybody! How are you enjoying the new year so far? I hope it starte off good for all of you and that it'll only get better with time. Have you taken down your Christmas tree and decorations yet? I haven't done that yet - will probably do it tomorrow. It started snowing late in the afternoon yesterday and when I woke up today everything was white - our first snow of the season. If only Christmas was like that! *sigh* So we decided to leave our tree up just for a wee bit longer; every day counts, right? ;)
I have one last Christmas card to share with you. It was done for a dear friend of mine and I didn't want her to see it before it arrived. Now it's already in her hands, so it's safe for me to post it here as well. :)
I'm sorry for the bad quality of the photos, but the card was done at the very last minute (how typical for me *sigh*) and I didn't have much time to take photos of it, because I had to mail it asap if I wanted it to get to my friend in time. Card is much prettier (and sparklier) in real life.
I received these elegant rectangle die cuts from one lady a while back and couldn't wait to make a card with them. Aren't they pretty? I think they were cut with Spellbinders dies. And when one of my friends and I had some crafty time I borrowed her Spellbinders poinsettia die and My favourite things' snowflake die to make a few die cuts with those as well. Once I put all of those die cuts together I made a card you see above. :) I wanted to use tulle in the background, but I couldn't find a white one in my little town, so I came up with a different solution. I bought a white net bath sponge and took it apart so that I could cut a piece of it out. I ironed it a little (I put a towel over it first) and voila, the result is seen on the card. I was really pleased with how it turned out.
Unfortunately it's very hard to see in the picture(s), but I added some Stickles on poinsettia as well. All of the embellishments I used came from my stash.
Well, that's it from me for now. I hope you're enjoying the weekend! Hugs! xx
