Today I was at the park in shorts and a tank top yet again!
I know I live in Arizona, but I want it to feel like Christmas!
Soooo I made this pretty Christmas card when I got back from my work out!
I'm playing along with the challenge over at the Stampendous Blog who is teaming up with
coredinations for a hard core Crop!
The challenge is to use a stampendous stamp (that would be Santa!)
And also to use coordinations color core Cardstock
The black with the red paper is coordinations, and the green background paper is also
I embossed the black paper with my Tim Holtz embossing folder,
which made the paper crack, I then sanded it with my sander, and cut the edges with my
pinking sheers. (yep, I've used them before, and I'll use them again!)
For the green cardstock I also cut the top and bottom edges with my pinking sheers,
I then ran the edges thru my sewing machine
I then cut a piece of gold ribbon and added an antique button (estate sale find)
Here is a close up of Santa
as you can maybe see, I paper peiced the middle of him. I love the little
added detail this brings!
I'm sure if you've been following my work at all you are getting super sick of this
same green color over and over... I have great news... Today I bought 2 new copic's
both in green! I'm super excited to try them out tonight!
I hope your Christmas Crafts are all on track!
