Good Evening Friends!
I finally picked my first swap card of the season... ~ The swapping season that is! Right when the preorders come out for demonstrators, I typically sign up for a few swaps.. This year I'm signed up for FIVE separate swaps! I must be out of my mind! :D I actually turned down a swap I usually participate in.. so funny!
I'm really diggin the new mini catalog. This card was made with images from the upcoming set "P.S. I love you" from Stampin' Up! I love the valentine images and the sentiment is to die for! I love the fun and pretty font.
This is one of the floral patterns from the twitterpatted designer paper, and the pleated ribbon that I'm already addicted to. This one is red riding hood. A color that I'm ready to renew my love affair with now that there's so many fun accessories to go with! :D I really love using designer paper this way. I cut a sheet of paper down to 3 3/4" x 5" then cut from corner to corner. 1 piece of Designer paper yields 12 of this fun pattern!
Base 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Layer 2: basic grey 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"
Layer 3: baja breeze 5 x 3 3/4"
Layer 4: DSP cut to above measurements
Layer 5: ribbon
Layer 6: framelet cut shimmer white
Layer 7: heart of hearts embosslet (for the heart)
Layer 8: Shimmer white punched heart
That's it for today... Say~ my daughter really wants to bake Christmas cookies. Does anyone have a good recipe for sugar cookies they can share with me? I've never made them!
Also, how do you frost and decorate them? Do you have any traditions you'd like to share?
