I started out with wanting to do an elegant card and ended up with more of a whimsical card. Too funny!

  • Card Base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 in Whisper White
  • White Arglyle Mat is 4 x 5 1/4 run through the Big Shot with the Arglye Folder
  • Garden Green Mat is 2 3/4 x 4
  • The image piece is 2 5/8 x 3 7/8
  • I stamped the three Champagne Glasses in So Saffron and they looked very paling to me so I blinged them up with colored Rhinestones….done with Sharpies. Okay now we’re getting festive and not so elegant, right?
  • I then stamped the Cheers! sentiment in Garden Green and thought what should I put on the other side to balance it. Well a bow of course! I didn’t have any Real Red Ribbon and you know I love the Seam Binding so made my own with a marker on the Very Vanilla Seam Binding and made a single bow with my bow maker. and attached with a glue dot.
  • It was still blank to me so I started to doodle…..maybe got a little carried away with the doodles and dots but it’s Festive Right?
  • Then I ended it up thinking it needed some Dazzling Diamonds…..Holy Moly this simple card with one simple stamp was a work in progress and so darn cute. Not my usual for sure!
  • One final thing were the two candy canes stamped and cut hand to the bottom of the bow area.

So what do you think? Festive enough? hehe

Like I said this is not my usual but I had fun with it. That’s the best part of this job…having fun and having things make you smile and giggle…..it’s the little things you know???

Have a  wonderful Day!
