Happy Monday! In keeping with my recent "Christmas card spree" (LOL!!), I have two more items to share with you today!
These "cards" are a little different...in that they could be cards, or ornaments/wall hangings by adding a ribbon or string to the tops of them. For that matter, they would make wonderful toppings to gifts as well! At their widest points, they both measure 4 inches. I haven't decided how I'm going to use them yet...but suspect that they will be ornaments/package toppers given away with gifts. I will add the string/ribbon as I need them...
For this circle card (that I created using my the largest circle Nestabilities dies) I stamped this fun little dog (Spot from Rubber Soul) onto white c.s. and cut him out. I mounted him onto a piece of Riding Hood Red c.s. that I had already stamped tone-on-tone with my Winter Flake Trio stamp. He wasn't looking festive enough, so I gave him a fun Santa Hat to wear (complete with a fluffy trim made with a Puffy Velvet Marker)!! For the finishing touches, I stitched around the patterned paper (from Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding collection), added some Dew Drops, and hung a little Joy tag from the ribbon.
For this square card, (made using my largest square Nestabilties), I kept my design fairly simple and I chose a pretty bold piece of patterned paper (also from Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding Collection). For my focal image, I embossed my the Joy to the World sentiment onto White Linen vellum, and cut/embossed them with some circleNestabilities. For embellishments, I added some Riding Hood Red satin ribbon and a Snowflake ghost shape (I added some Stickles to it for some fun sparkle) with a Dew Drop in the center.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful Monday (and no, that is not an oxy-moron)!! LOL! ~Laurie
