It is finally time to send out the 2010 cards. I am a bit behind this year. I am usually the card that you receive on December 1st. Well, not so much this year!
I seemingly got bogged down by the 500 extra rhinestones that I decided to add to my cards. Yeah, 500. I know, what was I thinking?! I still have some to complete, but they are going to start their journey to a 100 homes tomorrow and the rest of this week. Here is the card - yes with the rhinestones - that will be going out this year.
The DP is from K & Company, Brenda Walton, Peppermint Twist Merry Words. I found it after Christmas last year, for only $.25 per sheet! I really liked it. Well, then I found out why. When I went on the annual Christmas Card Making Weekend trip with my girlfriends, we were going around showing our card and what we needed to do and one friend started to laugh. I of course asked why. She said that was the paper she used on her cards the year before and I was there when she bought it! Oh. For cripe sake. Um, well, I did get it for 75% off....... I finished the DP with an edge punch from EK Success.
I used Marvy tag punches to create the tag. I Cuttlebugged the white layer with Swiss Dots. I then used a Marvy and Fiskars snowflake punches. Yes, you added right, that was 500 snowflakes as well. I added a Reflections eyelet and then finished the tag with eyelash ribbon. Did I forget to mention that eyelash ribbon gets everywhere? Well, it does!
I hope that you all are having a wonderful holiday season!
