Splendor of the Season



I wanted to show you a card I did with a verse from one of last months releases called Christmas Blessings it comes with 10 beautiful verses and sentiments that are all about reminding us of the true meaning of Christmas and make doing quick and elegant Christmas cards simple. You could do one like this in about 15 minutes minus the sewing. I had a hard time editing this card because I think the computer doesn't do so well picking up this shade of green and red accurately and glitter is always hard so I think it is much prettier in person with the sparkle from the glitter and metallic thread, but you guys know how that is. The dp I used from the Laundry Line by MME was also a key element on this card and the jeweled brads, the star shaped one is available at CDS (there is a package of these in my blog candy!) Thanks for looking you guys have a great week! I'll be back Friday with a new post and some fun news!!! Oh AND I almost forgot Lori McCroscky is having a huge 5 year birthday celebration with prizes so you don't want to miss that over on her blog!!!
