okay, so i admit--these are bad photos. can't help it. tried to edit them a tad so they'd look like, at least, half decent. (can you tell i'm talking in my "Valley Girl" voice? i really can't think in anything serious at the moment, cuz it's FRIDAY :D) buuut... no luck. so the red card above is actually a real red. and the vintage buttons in the middle of that amazing stitch stamp from Impress--LOVE THEM! the buttons come from a stash my mom had from who knows how long ago... they're being hoarded at the moment. minus these, of course. the snowflakes are Martha Stewart, and i embossed the stamped image to give it some more texture/ interest. i like how simple this card is--especially since it's instantly gratifying.
the next thing i want to share is a tag--not my usual card, i know, but it was a ton of fun, and i actually think i'll be making some more of these to add to gift presentations for friends/ family.
the pink button is threaded with some hot pink tulle, and tied in a bow, although you can't see it here. i used a smidge of the WeRMemory Keepers Christmas paper for the polka dot strip at the bottom (CK buy!) and the pink panel is dotted cardstock from Bazzill.
down below, you can see the other side of the tag. i did some more embossing, this time with white instead of clear powder. the Hero Arts "Merry Christmas" sentiment that comes along with the owl set is just adorable, don'tcha think? i used some more of BasicGrey's Eskimo Kisses paper... those trees are so cute in pink and green, don't you think?
ohhh! don't forget--i actually tried some new glitter--a bit chunkier than what i normally use, but i think it's cool... i used some double sided glitter tape to put it at the top. BUT, really, let's be honest...
the best part about this whole tag is the amazing ribbon selection at the top--loving the overflow of textures and lengths... it just seemed too perfect to pass up :D
wellllll, thanks for looking, and hope you have a great Friday. i'm busy tonight with a group of "college/ career" people coming over for a get together... need to do some last minute cleaning. i honestly cannot believe how fast Thanksgiving is coming, and then CHRISTMAS! **love love love Christmas**
okay, really, i'm going... thanks for your sweet comments <3
