I still need a few more Christmas cards and have just picked up the latest copy ( or at least the latest here in NZ) of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine. It is the Nov 2010 issue and in it was a lovely card by Karen Watson that used Krylon webbing and silver ink. I decided to CASE the card using what I had to hand... namely a crackle stamp that looks a bit like the webbing, and using some Hero Arts and Papermania snowflake stamps. This is what I came up with....
Much better!!!!! in fact I so liked the design, I decided to do it again, this time in gold and white.
I embossed both the crackle and the snowflake on this one and was much more pleased with the results.
As both used a Hero Arts stamp, I have entered into the challenge for December - under the shine part, and as it was a CASEd card, both have been entered into the Wee Memories challenge this week and I have also entered both into the Caardvarks final challenge as they are monochromatic.
One last little tidbit.... one of the guys I work with, Mike, created this little ditty of the 4 of us who work together..... it's a bit of a laugh. See if you can recognise me
Take care all.... While many of you are suffering the cold weather.... I am SWELTERING in very humid conditions.... so stuffy here tonight.
