No pink, no glitter.... can you believe it??
Happy Sunday to you all....
Yes, yes, yes, I can manage a whole card without pink and without glitter....and here's the proof!! I saw something similar to this on Pinterest.... so thought I'd give such a simple card a go... and here is my take on it!
Very, very easy... the circle is embossed with a circular nestie... using the embossing mat rather than cutting through... I punched out some holly leaves which I used glossy accents on to make them shine... I stuck on some red pearls for berries... I used a Pink Petticoat Christmas sentiment... which I punched out with my favourite Stampin Up word window punch... then I embossed some lines across the base of the card with an embossing tool.
And there you have it.... I think I can cope with making quite a few of these... they do the heart good after spending a couple of hours yesterday colouring a snowman and his mates.. I never knew snowmen were so damn difficult to colour.... anyway, you'll see the above mentioned card this week sometime... as yet it's only a coloured image with no card behind it!
Whatever you're up to today - enjoy..... I think eldest daughter and I are off to Costco.... not been there before so better keep a tight rein on my purse! Youngest daughter btw is still travelling the world... she's in Dubai now after being a bridesmaid in India to her friend....(sari and all!), then spending a few days in and around India... looking at the Taj Mahal amongst other things... and now Dubai for 5 days before jetting off back home to Bermuda... she's certainly a globe trotter!
Big hugs to all
