Well…the past 24 hours have been fun but I admit….weird. WHY??? Getting back to the in’s and out’s of being home is an adjustment but I will say, John is the hero that you all say he is – he did a FABULOUS job!
All shoes are on the horses….the dogs are perfect….I came home to no laundry….he vacuumed the house….and he admitted, it was great to have me home! Yesterday morning, he said that it was great to see you up in your craft area….I am blessed, he is truly a keeper!
Today’s card is a keeper one. I love it and I hope that you do as well. We talk many times about bundles, and THIS IS one that you need to purchase as a bundle and I will say, it will NOT leave Randall Lane – how can you go wrong with the classic framelits and the sentiments……WOW – and WOOT-WOOT!
This is the kind of card that looks difficult but it is super easy and it is one that is the BEST in using up what you have! The framelit that cuts out the “intricate” pieces…but it is super easy – I just ran through a scrap of garden green and then soft suede. (you only need to use a wee bit of paper – scraps are your friends!
Here you can see close up…I just used the green glue to adhere the reindeer and the trees over top the white one that I cut out (just snip them) – SUPER EASY….and it creates an instant WOW against the Soft Sky that I cut out with the framelits.
The bakers twine is the icing on the cake and darn, I hope that this twine sticks around – I am nuts over Bakers Twine!. I always adhere a “bow” overtop of the twine and I use a glue dot to adhere it.
The DSP, Presents and Pine cones is a perfect accent of POP and I admit, I am having a “heart throb” with Delightful Dijon, I encourage you to give it a try…it is a great balance to many color palettes. (I was NOT a fan for a LONG time….but it has warmed up with me)
I love the simplicity and also the angles of the card – it is so easy and one that you can duplicate with many styles of cards. Would you like the dimensions??? I can hear you saying YES – YES!!!!
- The base is a Vertical Card and then the next layer of white is just 1/4″ smaller, 4″ X 5 1/4″
- The DSP Stars is 2 1/2″ X 4″
- The Garden Green is 4″ X 3″ and then the stars were stamped in versa mark (love the effect)
- The Soft Suede pieces are 1/4″ X 4″
- The Bakers Twine was adhered behind the DSP with a smidge of adhesive and then the bow was attached to the front with a simple glue dot
Please PIN the below picture for the future…I think that this is a card that has a WOW factor but it really is easy to make. Snip, adhere….DONE!
Have a great day, please let me know how you like this. There is something that a “simple” ornament does to get you in the mood of the holidays! It will be here before we know it….YIKES!!! 😕
We can do it….just enjoy the journey….take a deep breath and do what you can do…after all…TURKEY day is next week…..YUM!!!!!
