Good morning friends. Hope you all had a great weekend and are winding down with all your preparations and just enjoying all the wonderful moments of the season with your families and friends. We had a great time with my husbands side of the family on Saturday evening, and will see my side unfortunately today for a funeral. A hard time of year to lose someone, but my aunt lived a good life and we know she's celebrating Christmas with Jesus this year!
Wanted to share a card I made for an order for my girlfriend using SU!'s set from a few years ago called "The Sounding Joy". This is a tri-fold card, so a little bit different from your regular A-2 card. Take a look:
A bit hard to photograph a card folded this way, but hopefully you can get the idea. When the card lays flat and folded, the star covers the inside message. I used Cranberry Crisp cs for the base, a cream colored cs (LSS) for the inside star and inside sentiment, and a gold cs (LSS) to layer the star, sentiment, and the right hand edge strip that I embossed with a holly embossing folder. I used the largest stamp from SU!s "Flowering Flourishes" for the background of the inside. If you click to enlarge the picture you'll be able to see a lot more of the design. The card looks pretty simple at first glance, but there really are a lot of different elements that went into this card that make it special and I love how it turned out! :0) (my girlfriend did too!)
Well time for me to get motating, so that's all for today. Have a wonderful Monday and thanks so much for stopping by...love it when you do!
