It's Jingle Belles Rock week #9 - I can hardly believe I've stuck with ANYTHING this long. And I don't even send Christmas cards!!!!! I do sell them, though, so this is a bonus for me. Totally freeing up my October & November! :)
This week's challenge was to "incorporate text into your holiday creations ... it could be a book page, Christmas carol lyrics, a poem, or even a card that features a sentiment as the main focal point of the design. " Text paper? HELLO! I'm there!
I went searching for a beeeeautiful piece of paper that RuffHaven gave me several years ago. I went through ALL of my patterned papers looking for it, but alas, it was not to be found. (But I did find some other cool paper that she used on a many-textured card ... I should sub-title this blog: "Neat people never make the exciting kinds of discoveries that I do." Seriously.)
In my travels through many boxes, I found a strip of text paper and dubbed it "perfect", and then I made this:
That text, in real life, really does match the Soft Suede card stock. I just suk at photography and lighting. You'll just have to trust me.
Please note that, in addition to the piece of text paper, that flower (which I got out of my newly organized UFO drawer) also has text on it. I soooo deserve bonus points for that one. :) I also used a corduroy button I had to have several years ago, and just now opened. Also notice I've managed to use three different colors of red on this card AND, three different colors of "vanilla". Here's #3:
That's a Naturals White (not even Vanilla!) remnant that I cut with my Top Note die.
I think I still have some craftiness in me, and I found some other cool stuff in my search for the still-missing piece of paper, so I'm off to craft some more.
Thanks for stopping by!
