Does anyone else find this happening to them, or am I just bad at time management?
Oh well, who needs clean laundry and mopped floors anyway?
I made a card to enter in the Merry Monday and Festive Friday challenges this week. How's THAT for saving energy? (Now let me tell you the story of how long it took to come up with the concept that fit both challenges...)
Well, I liked the woodsy look and dark green of the Friday inspiration, and the gift idea, of course from Monday's challenge...
I made this--
I started with a wood grained background, via some kraft card stock and an embossing folder.
I then found my very darkest green card stock (of which I had a teensy scrap left), trimmed and dry embossed it, wrapped it with dark red ribbon to make it "gifty",backed it with some gold card stock, and popped it onto the base with foam adhesive. I finished off my "gift" by hot gluing on a happy little bow.
Glossy accents spreads on ribbon, by the way. Ask me how I know that...
I returned to the woodsy idea by using two wood veneer pieces, one on top of the other, to dress things up a bit. I painted the tree with some diluted gold ink to give some shine, yet let the wood grain show through.
A better look of that--
And one more view of the card--
So, I think that just about does me in for challenges this week, but I never say never, so stay tuned.
Thanks so much for dropping by!
