Good evening this eighth day of winter. How has the new season been going for you? The crew and I have been in holiday vacation/hibernation mode. The four of us have been holed up at home and waking up late each morning.
I managed to get in one, last card for this 2019 – a birthday card for one of my high school peeps.
In this card I finally started using the dies I had found during my first trip to Hobby Lobby in Elk Grove late September; thank you, Mama.
I have a Cuttlebug, my Christmas gift from E and the dames about two Christmases ago and sadly not used until now. This machine has been discontinued and since I’m using dies of another company, I had to hunt down something similar to Cuttlebug’s cutting plate C; luckily I found one on Amazon and it works perfectly.
- Recollections 8.5 x 11 cardstock, white
- Distress Oxides: Black Soot, Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers
- Sizzix Thinlit Dies: Garden Greens & Mixed Media 1
- Sizzix 3-D Texture Fades – Foundry – embossing folder
- Inkadinkado DH Script Background
- Stampin Up! Party with Cake stamps
- black, photo corners
- silver, embossing powder
I can’t remember what inspired the color scheme but Mer usually wears neutrals and she is one fierce, blunt friend. Therefore I wanted to make a moody card for her. Every piece revolves around the Distress Oxides I used. She received it the day before her birthday and loved it!
Sorry I didn’t get a podcast in this month; I was super busy prepping for Christmas. I’m currently working on a design for thank you cards for the teen’s tennis donors, tying in the girls’ holiday gifts as well (where it applies). I don’t know if I’ll get them done by the end of the year as I have 17 to make but oh well, I think each giver will understand once he/she sees what I’ve created. You know me and my strong tendency for perfection!
Have a good evening. Thanks for dropping by. TTYS.
