I'm on a bit of a roll with Christmas cards. I made a very clean, simple and elegant card for a few challenges:
- AAA Cards - AAA#47 - to use embossing - darn, missed the deadline!!
- Merry Monday - MM#170 - to use holly
- One Layer Christmas Card Challenge - OLXCC#17 - anything goes, optional twist family
Stamps: Chocolate Baroque - Holly Flourish; Uniko - Pure Floral Poinsettia; Kaisercraft - Mistletoe
Inks: Versamark; Versafine - Vintage Sepia
Accessories: Cream Lustre Card; Gold Mirri Card; Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder
I stamped the holly in Versamark directly on the card and heat embossed with gold tinsel powder - it has a lovely sparkle in real-life! I finished the front with a simple greeting. On the inside I cut a mat layer of gold mirri card and added a greeting and more holly on the cream panel.
Kathryn has finished her first week of High School - it's gone well. She has some homework, but not too much - I think they're settling them in gently. It is also the start of Kathryn's Birthday Week! I say week as there are several things happening this week. Tonight it's out to dinner with some of her friends. Later in the week we're having a family dinner and then it's her actual birthday on 17th September! So, as you can see, it's a whole series of events! That's all for now - see you soon.
