It's Friday! Yay! And even with all the snow on the driveway and the roads, the girl and I are going to McDonalds for breakfast! That may not sound that exciting to you, but we love to take the iPads with us and get coffee, hot chocolate and Egg McMuffins, and just relax and chit chat.
So I managed to make a Christmas card this week! I'm going to do my best to post at least one Christmas card a week. That's the plan anyway.
For this card, I used a die from Cottage Cutz that I got for Christmas. Am I the only one who gets Christmas stuff for Christmas? :D Anyway, I cut a piece of watercolor paper out with one of my rectangle stitched dies, and sponged a small amount of Antique Linen distress ink in the center. Then I smooshed my ink pad down on an acrylic block mixed it with a little bit of water and flicked some little speckles on the piece. The holly and bow, I cut out of white card stock and colored with my Copic markers. I had never tried this before, but I loved the way it turned out, so this is a technique that I will for sure being doing again. I layered the holly and bow with foam tape and glue dots, stamped the sentiment and added the little gold enamel dots last.
Holly Branch w/Bow - Cottage Cutz
Sentiment - Papertrey Ink
Stitched dies - Lawn Fawn
Well that's it for me today! We have a warm up on the way, so hopefully some of this snow will melt, and we'll be able to get outside and play more. Until then, I'll just make cards and clay things, because that's real fun :)
Have a great weekend!
