Well it's finally Friday again. I must say with working the 10-6 shift the days just fly right on by. By the time I get home from work and have dinner it's usually between 7-7:30, then at that time I really don't feel like doing much of anything. Most nights I'm in bed between 9 - 9:30. I'm up at 6 and go for my 1/2 hour walk in the mornings because one knows I surely wouldn't feel like it in the evening.
Last weekend I managed to get some cards done, and I actually worked on my first Christmas card of this 2013 season - woohoo for me! It's really nothing exciting, but here it is:
When I was at The Paper Pickle last week, I saw that Kim had some new embossing folders. I already own a couple of Christmas Tree embossing folders, but I loved the design of this one. This is a Couture Creations EF, and it comes in 2 sizes - the regular A2 size, as well as the 5x7. I went with the smaller one. The folder is called Early One Morning.
I embossed it on 110 lb white c/s. I love that there is already a frame around the tree. I was going to mount it onto another piece of white, but thought that would be to blah, so put a layer of shiny silver c/s behind it. I think it is a bit more classier looking with the silver. In the picture it looks like there is something on the silver above the star, but it is just a reflection from the light in my shadow box.
Finished off by adding some white liquid pearls to all the little dots and for the star I added some Tim Holtz distress glitter - clear rock candy - and boy does this stuff sparkle!
So there you have it, my first holiday card done, and a kazillion more to go!
Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful weekend everyone. See you again real soon,
