Hi Ladies, I hope that all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. Wayne and I celebrated it alone this year. We had a very quiet & wonderful day together. I have a card to share with you. I made it for thePPA 70 Sketch Card Challenge. I hope that you will take a few minutes to check out all of the beautiful cards that everyone has made. Lots of ideas to be had too. I made mine using the MDS program. I'm glad that I did this time. I really like the way that I was able to personalize it and I like the way that it came out so I am going to send it to Stampin'UP! to have a few printed up. I hope that you like it. I know that you would all like to see a paper made card and I would have made one using card-stock but decided to try my hand at a digital Christmas card.
Here is the front of my card.
Here is the inside of my card.
If you want to duplicate this card using card-Stock you will need Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler and very Vanilla. The DP is Deck the Halls and it is beautiful paper. On the front of my card I used the Christmas Postcard stamp. You will need the Top note die, 1 1/4" square punch, Always Artichoke ink and Cherry Cobbler Seam binding. I used the Barouque script font to put the year 2010.
To make the center of my card I used Always Artichoke card-stock and Very Vanilla. I used the stamp set Bells & Boughs. I colored it using Crumb Cake ink and I moved the opacity down to about 50%.You would use the stamp off technique if using card-stock. I then used Always Artichoke and added the text that you see also using the Baroque script font. I stamped right over the image. On the back of my card I used the bells from the Bells and Boughs stamp set and underneath I but my name as the designer of the card. I will be ordering my card on Monday when SU opens.As soon as I get the card back I will take a photo of it and show you what it looks like all printed up. All of this was done using the MDS program from Stampin'UP! It was simple to make and I had lots of fun making it.
Today we had our first snow. It came down very hard but only lasted for about 30 minutes. We got about 1/4" of snow and it melted away within an hour. It was in the 30's most of the day and as I type this post it is only 24 degrees outside. But it is suppose to get back into the40's by noon time. Winter is here for sure. Speaking of winter that means Christmas is just around the corner. Did any of you go out and do some shopping on Black Friday? This year I elected to stay in and pass on the sales. I still have shopping to do but will do it during the week and I hope to do it quickly. I still have 3 more scrapbooks to finish up and time is a ticking. I have my tree to put up and lots of tags to make for candy jars that I give to Wayne's co-workers and family members. This year the jars will be smaller. :)
Well, I could go on and on but I'm sure that you have lots to do and not much time to read all of what I have been up to. Thank you so much for stopping by and thank you very much for all of the kind comments you have been leaving me. I certainly have appreciated all of them
