Good morning, Friends! Are you having a great week so far? The weather has been so unusually warm around here that it just doesn't feel like Christmas is so close! And that looks to be the trend through December! Wow! It's also kind of scary as we really need the moisture! I sure do hope that we get something. I keep playing Christmas music to remind me that it really is coming and I need to keep plugging along with my Christmas lists, shopping and making - lol! And it looks like I need to do a little stamping as this is my last card in my stash! The laundry also needs to be taken care of, too. Guess my day is planned out - lol!
Today's card was inspired by the sketch from Freshly Made. This is an older sketch and I made this card for a swap that I participated in earlier this month. Love the clean and simple look but the cutting and coloring were anything but simple! I would not plan on mass producing this one!! For a small swap it was fine. I punched a piece of Gumball Green with the dotted ribbon scallop punch and adhered this to a piece of Very Vanilla. The top corners of the Very Vanilla were rounded with a 1" circle punch. Then I stamped the sentiment from Bells & Boughs in black StazOn. I tied a piece of Crumb Cake seam binding ribbon around it. This panel is adhered to a piece of Cherry Cobbler that was run through the Big Shot using the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. This is then popped up onto the card base of Crumb Cake. I stamped the image in black StazOn onto a scrap of Very Vanilla and colored it using the Gumball Green and Cherry Cobbler markers. Then I carefully cut it out and popped it up onto the card. Lastly, I added a rhinestone to the greeting. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
