Hey there my Stampin' friends,
Thank you for dropping in today! I don't know where the time has passed since I last blogged. Where have I been?
Well, I have stamped at 2 private parties - it is always fun to meet some great new stampin' friends - and hockey, hockey, hockey! All three of my boys are right in the midst of their hockey season! I have to admit, I LOVE to watch them play!
Well, you stopped by to see a new card from me.....and I have a Christmas card to show you today. I decided to get into the grove using the great sketch challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches! This is a good one!
I knew I wanted to use the stampset Merry Everything. And I knew that I wanted to use the stamp "A Very Merry Everything to you and Yours" - I think it is perfect for the chalkboard technique! This set is awesome to have...I have used it for Thanksgiving, Halloween and now Christmas. It even has a matching punch!
I started with a Real Red card base and layered it up with Whisper White embossed using the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder - I think it looks like snow! I added a strip of Red Glimmer paper to add some sparkle to my card.
I stamped my image onto Basic Black Cardstock and used my Scalloped Tag Punch to make it into a tag. I wanted to use this punch because it is wider then the Note Tag Punch that is a perfect match to the set.
I used the smallest star in the Star Framelit set and used my mini star punch from my Mini Merry Punches set. I finished my card off with a little ribbon bow.
Be sure to stop on over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog to see all of the fabulous creations!
