JustRite Merry Christmas card
Hello Crafty Elves!
Can you believe it is only 154 days until Christmas? And to think I am not even halfway through with my shopping! At least I can say that I have another Christmas card completed. :)
The card base was made using Spellbinders 5x7 Elegant Labels and red cardstock by Recollections. I also stamped JustRite's Antique Damask Background Stamp on red cardstock and embossed it in Winter White embossing powder from Stampin' Up. I ran the background through the Elegant Labels die, fussy cut around the edges and layered it on the card base. Plain white cardstock was die cut using the smallest die from Elegant Labels and I double embossed it with silver embossing powder to give it a silver metal appearance (thanks for the tip, Deja!). JR Antique Tags One die was used to cut red cardstock and JR stamp set Christmas Antique Labels One supplied the Merry Christmas sentiment. Spellbinders Poinsettia dies were used to cut red cardstock and silver tulle. A silver ribbon bow and pearl bling were added to the opposite side of the sentiment. Silver pearls were applied to the perimeter of the die cut card base. SIlver Stickles were applied at will.
So what do you think?
I would like to venture off for a second to discuss a very important topic that came from the Shopping Our Stash blog. Their challenge this week was "Do I really need more of this?" and use "this" on a project. This is quite the deep, philosophical crafting question. If you went into my craftroom you may think that I would have an overabundance of ribbon, paper, Cuttlebug embossing folders, JR stamps or any dies. Sure, I really don't NEED any more of those items just like I don't NEED to have a handful of peanut butter M&Ms after I finish this entry. But I am going to and they make me feel pretty darn happy...just like my crafty treasures! So I now pass this question to you: What do you have an over abundance of in your crafty room? Feel free to just let your answer flow and get it off your chest! Leave your answer in the comment section below and even share it on the Shopping Our Stash blog. I bet it will make you smile...and then make you want to go on ebay to see if you can buy any more. ;)
Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comments. I really appreciate it. Now where are those M&Ms?...
