I think I've got it this time. This week's Jingle Belles Rock challenge was to use the following elements on a card:
1 - as white as a ghost
2 - a present
3 - a bow or knot
4 - a touch of traditional Christmas colours
And where my first attempt earlier this evening was only 50% there, I think I've nailed it this time:
Present - check. Bow - check. Mostly white - check. A touch of traditional colors - check. Bada-bing, bada-boom.
Okay, then, let's talk details. The prezzie is the Hero Arts Antique Brocade (thank you for the enablement, Libby - I love this stamp!) stamped in Versamark onto SU Naturals White card stock and embossed with white EP. I stamped two of them, and cut one up for the prezzie "lid". The edges of both pieces for the box were inked in Old Paper Distress ink. The ribbon is from my last OMG I NEED MORE RIBBON moment. I love that it's two-sided! The other piece of SU Naturals White card stock was embossed with the SU Finial Press folder, and I turned it over so the flat side is up. I stuck the whole thing to a Kraft card base, and put teeny tiny red and green bling in the impressions of the embossed image. The tag was a last-minute thang so I could use the 'merry' sentiment from my SU Tiny Tags set and my maybe-used-for-one-class Jewelry Tag punch. There. I've justified their purchase. ;/
Ooooh, I did both heat-embossing and dry-embossing on one card! Sweet.
Okay, that's it for tonight. Tomorrow I plan to work on my taxes some more (I'm up to charitable donations, and my records are all over the place... you know, online giving is one thing, but finding those receipts later? Gah!), get a mani/pedi (because I'm worth it), and prep for my Stamp Camps which are Sunday and Monday. In between all of that I plan to reward myself by doing a few more challenges. I hope.
Thanks for stopping by!
