This morning, I put away all of the Thanksgiving and fall decorations and put out minimal Christmas ones. Not too many, as we will have a busy month with family and friends and travel. I will not have much to put away when it is time to leave for warmer weather. The wind chill here today is in the negatives.
Oh, and I have to mention the WIN yesterday for my team, The Packers. I love football and it was a great game. Hard fought and hard work, but they did it. Before the game started, I made this card for the Mod Squad challenge which required using music in your card. Anything goes at Just Us Girls this week, so I will be entering this card in both challenges.
Here is the card!
Here is a side view so that you can see the layers.
Gold base with SU CS
Layer of green foil CS from DCWV
more gold CS. All were die cut with stitched rectangles from Lil' Inker.
GKD Prismatic glitter Frozen
Red glitter embossing powder from Recollections
Music stamp from BoBunny
I die cut the tree after stamping musical notes on it. I really wanted to put "O Christmas Tree" on the front, but had no stamp for that. Yes I tried a computer generated one, didn't look good. So I went with Merry Christmas from Wplus9.
The difficult part was to take all of the negative cuts and pop them out with foam tape. This angle shows it better.
This is the die that I got this spring at a craft fair. It is Ellentina cutting dies. The back of the package says Tessler Crafts. I have not seen them before or since. Next time, I may cut out two different greens and just pop them together, because cutting all of those little pieces of foam tape almost made me nuts!
Thanks again for dropping in. I wish I could serve coffee and cookies, it is that time of year.
