I was in the mood -- and was overdue -- for some cardmaking over the weekend.
I made this card for a challenge . . . and then forgot to post it. Ah, well, I've got the first Christmas card of 2013 made, anyway! I printed a vintage Santa image (from the Graphic Fairy website -- great stuff there) onto dictionary paper, inked the card background, and used a Versamark pen & gold embossing powder to glam up the edges. The sentiment -- a TH stamp -- is gold embossed on a bit of vellum.
This one is in the mail to my sister-in-law, late. I'd matched up the strips of paper on a piece of cardstock for this very purpose last summer and came across it serendipitously when digging around for something.
The theme of the day seems to be quick and simple -- the card base is from Doodlebug, I'd already stamped the sentiment on the punched shape (sharp eyes will notice that I use this one constantly), and I used up this adorable sea horse sticker I'd been hoarding for, honestly, a good couple of years. So, so cute. I love sea horses.
Another Doodlebug card base, already-punched-and-stamped-sentiment, bird sticker, and gems. This card and the previous one are for a nephew and niece birthday, respectively.
Thanks for stopping by. I'm sorry I didn't get to more blogs last week. I'm trying hard to spend time with my daughter & husband evenings and weekends instead of being on the computer too much . . . but that severely cuts into my WOYWW blog hopping!!!
