I may start in a day or two with just my nutcracker collection. I would like to enjoy the Christmas trees for a bit more. With all the activity over the holidays I feel like I didn't get to just relax in front of them.
But that won't be tonight either because hubby will be gone to a basketball game. And, I will be picking up Ethan (youngest grandson) at school and then spending some time at my son's home. I haven't been over there in a couple of weeks.
One thing I am getting to do is look back over the Christmas cards I made this year. This is another I made for the CC561 challenge on Splitcoaststampers. I was the hostess and my color trio is coastal cabana, bermuda bay and smoky slate.
My inspiration came from this card that I saw on Pinterest. I really liked the Christmas package look. So I re-created it in today's colors and added an additional layer.
My background designer paper is from the Stampin'-Up "winter frost" collection. It has all 3 of the challenge colors. I layered it with smoky slate cardstock and then my card base is Bermuda bay.
My "ribbons" and "bow" are cut with the Blueprints 1 die from MFT in bermuda bay. My tag is a die from Sizzix and cut in smoky slate. The sentiment is stamped in Bermuda bay ink. Stamp is from the MFT " gift tag greetings" set.
Well that's my card for today. Time to get busy with my day because before I know it the clock will roll around to 2:00 pm and I leave for the drive across the city to get Ethan.
So until next time.......God bless.
