Well, would you look at this - it's a blog post. And I'm excited about it, because it's my creation for our monthly Sisterhood of the Traveling Cards!
Our wonderful hostess for November, Lindalee (aka tatterpuss), gave us the challenge to create a Christmas card with one catch -- no red and no green. So, I went with purple because it's one of Lindalee's favorite colors.
The layout is from the Nov/Dec Papercrafts magazine and as soon as I saw it on the cover, I knew I wanted to use it. And the dear Catherine helped me choose the beautiful shimmery background DP at our last Archiver's meet. It's gorgeous IRL and looks like a frosted window or swirling snow!
I also knew I wanted to stamp the snowflake on acetate so it was floating above the card, but the biggest challenge was how to attach it. A dimensional would show and I didn't have any small, thick glue dots, so I punched small acetate stars, attached 'em to brads with CE, then attached the snowflakes to those with CE.
It worked great and I got the shadow I wanted, but now my concern is did they hold up during mailing??? I really hope so and I really hope that Lindalee likes them!
I'd love to say "Come back tomorrow for another card", but I know me too well. LOL Besides, this is my Holidays Here I Come Weekend. I took vacation for Monday and Tuesday, so between 5:00 AM Saturday and 11:59 PM Tuesday, I WILL put up the tree, decorate the house, and bake, bake, bake!!!
But I DO know I'll definitely have a post on Wednesday for the KitCat Card Club for the festive kit from Catherine! Normally, we would be posting this Sunday, but we kittens are a little busy, so we gave ourselves purrrrr-mission to wait a few extra days to post.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Creating!
