I haven't gotten on here to post anything new. Matter of fact, I put the postcards from home on hold cos I needed to get various and sundry other things done. I hated doing that - but after 71postcards I don't think it's too bad to take a short break, do you?
Today, I'll be taking these cards to the post office and sending them on their way. Finally. I will say right up front I didn't come up with this card all on my own. I saw a version of it on Splitcoaststampers. I don't remember whose card it was so I can give credit however when I saw that card I thought it was pretty and it looked like something I'd make. I changed the sentiment and used an American Crafts Glitter marker for the berries. (which may be mistletoe really, right Amy? but i think it looks equally as nice with red berries. I don't think we have to be botanically correct for Christmas do we Joan? ;-)) I think I mentioned previously I had run out of grosgrain ribbon and switched over to some satin ribbon. I almost like the satin better.
I've made a few things over the past few days with my new damask stamp from Purple Onion Designs. I am in love with this stamp. I started off by just stamping it all over a sheet of cardstock and embossing with clear EP. Doesn't it look just like fabric?
I used a piece of that to make this card. I had a scrap of some polished stone technique cardstock leftover on which I stamped the angel. I added some german scrap that I embossed with gold EP to make it match up better with the polished stone. well gee it's getting late and I gotta get moving for the day. I'll be back to show you something else i made with my faux fabric
