So it’s getting down to crunch time on Christmas cards, and one or two cards a week is probably not going to cut it at this point… (… but if that’s all I get to – that’s okay too! Too much pressure takes the fun out of it – right?!)
I did get around to making two last night. They are two completely different cards – which is the joy of hand creating cards to me. I rarely (if ever) make the same card twice. The fun is in the creating for me. And even more fun is individualizing them for the recipient.
The first one is a more elegant card with white glittery, silver, sparkly, shiny snowflakes in clean and simple simplicity.
I made it to enter into two challenges. It meets the requirements for 3 in a row down at The Paper Players PP224 Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge this week for white, snowflake, and glitter. It also meets the Friday Mashup FM187 It’s All About Weather criteria for using a metal embellishment (SU Frosted Finishes embellisment) and having a weather inspiration (snowflakes from SU Festive Flurry).
I just love this “Mingle all the Way” stamp sentiment and was dying to use it, so I came up with this simple, rustic, country design in brown craft and red with a big red bow. I distressed and sponged all the edges and added just a few tiny pearls for a little pop.
I used the SU Holiday Home stamp for the inside to continue the rustic classic theme on the inside.
So welcome into my mind….
this is the wacky way it works sometimes…
As I looked at these two completely different cards, all I could think about was the old classic television show from the late sixties when I was a wee-one, called “Green Acres.”
Anybody remember? (Take a moment to listen and travel down memory lane...)
So the first card is for Eva and the second is for Eddy.
Which is more your style? Are you an Eva or an Eddy?
Though I am FAR from a farm girl, country life is more to my liking – with visits to the city.
Green Acres is the place to be…
I dare you to try and get this song out of your head now! (No thank yous necessary) 🙂
So whether your holiday is in the “fresh air” or in “Times Square,” make it merry and bright!
Cheers & Hugs,
