I had a vision of a soft and shimmery Christmas card but I didn't get around to creating it until today. Since it is too late to make copies to mail to friends and family, I decided that I would send one last card to everyone in blogland before Christmas Eve. Using watercolor paper, white embossing powder, Stampendous stamps and the technique I explained in my last blog post, I created the multicolored snowflake panel with silver embossed words. I recently discovered and purchased a pack of 12x12 embossed cardstock with a different colored inner core. When sanded with the Darice sanding block a pretty pattern was revealed (several different ones in the pack). This sanded pink piece (difficult to see in the photo) was layered with the piece of American Crafts glittered swirled cardstock. Punches were used for the circle (stamped with Stampendous image) and the two snowflakes (Martha Stewart). Added embellishments were blue twine from the jumbo pack (on sale at Ben Franklin Crafts), and Studio 112 sparkly stickers. All the materials for this card were purchased from Ben Franklin Crafts. Before I put away my Christmas supplies, I might make a few more tags and put them aside for next year. Hopefully, I will be able to craft some thank you and New Year cards before the 1st, so I'll be off to a good start in 2013. I resolve to not procrastinate and craft seasonal items way in advance...... oh, and I resolve to clean up my craft room! Happy New Year to all my blogland friends!
