These two are made with a platinum shimmer paper for the base and the oval cut. Snowy glitter paper was used for the scallop cut. The ovals are embossed using Swiss Dots and a swirly bird embossing folder. The base is outlined by scoring 1/4" around the border.
The leaves I created by drawing a cluster of 3 , cutting them by hand then scanning to my computer. From my SCAL program I traced the leaves to create an svg file then sized them to 2.5" and cut several for these cards. The ribbon and the spray of pearls are attached with glue dots. I will probably use silver sentiment stickers "Merry Christmas" or "Seasons Greetings" centered at the bottom of the card.
What do you think? Which one do you prefer? I'm sure I can come up with several different variations for this simple design. How about you. Subtle differences are fun...doing the same thing repeatedly becomes dull and boring.
I took several pictures of my craft space in the middle of making these cards. My space gets so cluttered.... then my head gets to spinning ... so I have to stop and put things away before I can continue. Does this happen to you? So many questions today, I wonder does anybody read all this stuff? Well that's all for now. Maybe tomorrow I'll post the pictures of my craft room. Normally I end my posts with a quote...I know my sister enjoys them. I'd like to take a vote - Do you enjoy the quotes - it doesn't matter - or you didn't even notice.
Be well - Carole.
