Here’s another really short post. I’ve been working on this card for two days! Hubby has been off work all the kids are home and my daughter took two day trips and let me with everyone! It’s been slow going making a card:( But, everyone is finally in bed and I have a few minutes before I fall over and go to sleep! This card actually took a while because I had to search for all the components and I changed my mind half way though;)
Now, I was going in a totally different direction with this card, I even had the design “approved” by my daughter;) I was going to use gold glitter paper as my background and gold ribbon. Well, that’s not what I made;) lol
This is the paper I started with, I didn’t make it, I found it on Etsy listed as Bokeh Christmas Digital Paper. I love this paper! It’s actually a deeper red down on the left and bottom. I have so much trouble getting all the colors to look just right with the lighting I have available:(
The Bokeh looked like reflections of the candle light to me. Anyway…..I used an image from Fred She Said called, Christmas Rose Coloured Set. I cut it out with a Spellbinders die, and popped it up with Stampin’ Up! dimentionals. I also used Stampin’ Up! 1/8″ Ribbon Taffeta (retired). The top corner snow is called Snowflake Corner, by Memory Box.
I’m still living partially out of boxes, so I had to search for my ribbon and my Memory Box die, so annoying! 😦 I was going to use what I had on hand (gold) but then decided I really wanted the white:) I hope you like my card, it really was Simply Made;)
Thanks for coming by to look at my blog! 🙂 Most people will probably be out watching fireworks, but two of my little ones are afraid of the noise, so I put them down early, hoping they would sleep through it. So sad:( Lawrence was actually excited about the fireworks until he remembered how loud they are:( I hope you all have had a safe and happy 4th! 🙂
