2nd post of the day - please scroll down to read earlier post
Done a fair bit of tidying up following the Christmas festivities and the boxes are back down from the loft - a sure indication that Christmas is virtually over.
I hope anyone feeling a smidge delicate following last evening's celebrations has recovered - since we were early to bed it wasn't us!!! I've even managed some crafting today. Obviously a sketchie, which I'm also entering in the "ANYTHING GOES" challenge over on ILPM's. I used a white C6 card and cut a piece of DCWV Shimmer card stock slightly smaller than my base card. I stamped on this card using memento ink in tuxedo black and using my Inkadinkado dot flourish clear stamp. I also had a small offcut of DCWV embossed spotty card for the top panel and some toning Coredinations. I attached velvet ribbon (a Christmas gift from my crafting Secret Santa so thank you Cindy). I stamped my docrafts sentiment on white card and cut closely round it before mounting on a piece of the coredinations and then the DCWV shimmer and adhering to the velvet ribbon. The Crafty Individuals image was also stamped on white card in memento ink before colouring with Pro Markers. I do hope you like it.
The second piece of work today started life as an offcut from a piece of 12" x 12" paper - left over from cutting the sheet down to my 8½" x 11" format. I used an edging punch all along one end and then scored in each "valley" of the punched image before folding "hill", "valley", "hill", "valley" along the length. I then stuck the two ends together and cut two zig zag circles for top and bottom (basically to hold it flat!). I die cut a tag from DCWV shimmer card in green (the same as I used for the top and bottom circle) and then attached a length of narrow satin ribbon (the wonderful Michaels at 50c a reel!) and then (using my glue gun) attached to the rear of my "flower" and there you have a nice little embellished gift tag, as really rather simple to make too!
Hope you've all had a good day - now I'm off to watch Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban!
