There are times that life just gets in the way…recently my hubby and I bought a house and moved. Three weeks ago to be exact and as it so often does, my craft room was the last room in the house to get any attention. Not for lack of love, that’s for sure but no matter what is going on in life we all have to eat, bathe (hopefully frequently, ha!) and sleep so my craft room is still in disarray.
I tell you all of this to make a point…I was able to grab my kit and a few minimal supplies: stamp tool, trimmer, liquid glue and scissors and still come up with a super cute card to give a friend in need of encouragement. Hopefully this little story will encourage you to make some time for yourself even if your supplies are minimal and life is taking over your space and your time.
July’s Flavor of the Month kit sold out (yay!). If you would like to ensure that you get next month’s kit sign up for a subscription that way you won’t miss a thing!
Thanks so much for coming to the blog today, I hope you find some time for yourself and get to do that thing you love doing!
Hello hello! Kim here bringing you a card I made with an elegant die from Find It Trading, Christmas Baubles. This delicate die cuts out very nicely, a little tip though if you do like I did and use glitter paper also use a shim it’ll give you a smoother cut. The glitter paper I used is self adhesive which makes it even more user friendly in my opinion. I used silver glitter paper and gold glitter paper because I thought they would really stand out against the red and I was very pleased with how it turned out.
Now I like the baubles a whole lot but I definitely agree that they are not able to carry the whole card but I also wanted them to really stand out. I decided to use MFT’s Merry Christmas Greeting stamp and embossed it in white embossing powder. With this large sentiment offset it left a good amount of space for the Christmas Baubles to fit right in beside it. I adhered it all down to a card front with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and with all the glitteriness (not a real word I know) of the baubles I felt it was finished. Yay! One card down and oh so many more to go, good thing I love making Christmas cards right?
Thanks so much for stopping in and checking out the blog today. I hope you get to do something for yourself.
