A Month of Holiday Cards: Day 3

Day 3


I was going through my A Card A Day book and saw a paper flower with a felt center. I thought it was adorable, so that’s where the idea for today’s card began.  Except for the kraft card base, all the paper is from Sierra Pacific’s Merry Little Christmas mini stack. I edged everything in Pumice Stone Distress Ink. The ribbon is from Martha Stewart. Now, I love ribbon, but I admit I had never before tried to tie it on to a card. This ribbon is particularly slippery. I used the last of my precious glue dots getting it to stay put. Oh, and the tag. I wanted to do some fancy thing with Distress Ink or Stain, but I was apparently using the wrong paper, and after a couple tries, I went on to something else. Now to find a holiday sentiment stamp…oh, you’ve got to be kidding. Out of my hundreds of stamps, I don’t have a single Christmas sentiment. Okay, handwriting it is. I had to practice that a few times. As in, a few dozen. But it finally came together, and I’m darned happy with it. And yes, the camera battery is charged up again.

And here is something short, cute, and spooky:
