I’ve been suffering with insomnia over the past few days but decided rather than thinking about all the things on my to do list, I’d design a card in my head. And this is more or less it. I hadn’t visualised the ribbon and the sentiment is a different shape, but the idea is there! My starting point was the Winter Wonder TIEF. I have to say that designing this was a very relaxing way of passing the time at 4am!
You can’t see it in the photo, but this is the shimmery white paper, so there’s a delicate sparkle to all of the white paper – including the tag since I needed it to match. I started with the dry embossing and then added a strip of the brand new real red 1/8 inch solid ribbon. I missed it on my preorder, somehow I just didn’t notice it in the catalog. It’s lovely ribbon with a good temperament. Next the sentiment from Star of Light stamped in real red and cut out with the layering ovals framelits dies. I added a scalloped mat in real red too. I popped these up and added a little bow so that the card looks just like a little gift. Which it really is.
This will be one of the cards that we make at my next Christmas card class on Monday September 18th. There are still some spaces if you are interested.
I hope you enjoyed today’s project.
