Hi everyone. Made a Christmas card using elements from my unfinished projects box. :) I had made a similar card a few years ago and had stamped and sponged an extra image and tossed it in with my other unfinished projects and forgot about it ... until now. :) I found it the other day and decided it was time to finish it off. I added some torn snowbanks with sparkle added to the tops (clear glitter glue), stamped the sentiment and popped it up on top of one of my favourite winter embossed backgrounds (borrowed from a friend Susan I don't have this folder), and voila, another card for my stash!!
This is for this week's Merry Monday Challenge #198 - Christmas Carols. Such a great challenge that is being hosted by my good friend, Bonnie (Stamping with Klass). "Peace on Earth and mercy mild" is one of the lines from "Hark the Herald Angel's Sing". :)
I love aqua, red and white together. Such a pretty colour combo. Pool Party ink was sponged for the background, and then I splattered with some water to give it visual texture. The tree was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed in white. Some red rhinestones were added for a bit of sparkle, along with some clear glitter glue along the top of the torn hills of snow.
The majority of the cards I make now are CAS Mix Up ... and this is no exception. This is a CAS card, but it has a lot of elements and techniques, including sponging, heat embossing, splattering, torn edges and dry embossing. :)
Do you have a pile of unfinished elements?? I bet if you do, you'll find lots to make some quick and easy cards. :)
Sharing a few pics of my sweet grandson, Cooper. I LOVE the one of him hugging his grampa ... that was taken at Christmas. The next is a series of photos of him at my mom's 87th birthday celebration. He was sneaking something from the table and thought no one noticed ... so cute!! All pics are courtesy of my DSIL, Alex. Thanks Alex!
Thanks for encouraging me to share these pics Jane!! :)
