What a week...
Good Sunday Morning...it is a beautiful day in Southwestern Ontario...lots of fresh snow, the sun is shining...and I am still sick! YUCK...maybe I should have gotten a flu shot, I have been fighting this for a couple of weeks, however, I crashed on Wed night, and am still sick. It isn't fun...and now I am just feeling sorry for myself!!
Earlier this week I had the opportunity to meet with some friends to share my love of stamping. We had so much fun...here is one of the projects we made...a fun Santa "card" gift holder. We used the large scallop for the big shot, cut out a scallop from real red, pink piroutte, and whisper white. I counted off 13 scallops and cut the real red at that mark, we attached the smaller piece, at a jaunty angle to the pink, and the remainder we attached to the back to use as a gift card holder. Fold the white scallop in half and attach to the front..as you can see, this is where you can add your greeting. Various punches add the facial features as well as the trim on his hat...Thanks to Heather, a local demo for the idea. She used the small scallop circle from the Big Shot, and added it as a scrapbook element...
The Reindeer ornament card also uses the big scallop...I used a regular sized card, and put it in the big shot, just below the top of the scallop die..that way, you still get the fold of the card. The reindeer face was a copy from Jackie's blog...add the tab punch and this acts as a tree ornament as well. I used the coluzzle to cut his face, and I cut a small snowflake from the big shot and used that as the antlers. A drop of crystal effects makes his nose "shiney and bright".
Check over at Splitcoast for the sunday challenge...I based my reindeer card on this
I hope you can get outside and enjoy this beautiful day...for me...I think I will try and do some stamping...maybe that will make it all better!
