Did you observe World Card Making Day Saturday? I spent a good part of the morning addressing cards for the mail, and in the afternoon I made three cards. Monday morning I photographed. There's a lot more to stamping than making cards! I'll have to wait a bit to share some of the cards I made, but today I have a Christmas card.
The frame and poinsettia were already cut and laying on my desk unassembled. They looked dull and uninteresting until I splattered them with dilute white acrylic paint. Perhaps too dilute, hence the large splatters, but I still like the look of it. I cut the poinsettia again from green glitter paper for the leaves, and nested it on gold glitter foliage.
The flower center is glitter paper circles. I know, not very gorgeous, but it will be easy to mail. I had a fancy rhinestone brad all picked out for it, but in the end I couldn't bring myself to add the hard bulk. Glitter paper dots and the retired JustRite sentiment finish it off. Here's the die list:
Poppystamps Stitched Poinsettia Trio
Poppystamps Sylvan Sprig
Die-namics Stitched Rectangle Frames
I'm happy to have added another Christmas card to my stash, and it sure was quick and easy. Thanks a lot for visiting today. You know I love it when you stop by. Take care!
