Good Morning Ladies,
I hope today finds you all well, how is your week going?
How many have started your Christmas Shopping?? We have three little stocking fillers and that's it, I have asked for lists etc but nobody seems to know what they would like, which isn't so much of a problem when you have young children, however when they are adults it's a bit harder, I think I am just going to get some bits and pieces as they always like 'surprises' !
I think I have enough Christmas cards made, I say this every year.....I wish I had made inserts when I made the cards but I like to make sure they are relevant and personal for the recipient, so that's all I have left to do.
Today's card certainly has the 'Shine' of Sparkle & Shine. I used Silver Mirror card that I embossed with the 'Stampin Up' Evergreen Forest Embossing Folder, after embossing I took a sanding block and lightly sanded the surface to remove some of the foil coating, I then took some Mossy Meadow ink and used a sponge to rub it all over the embossed area, so that I covered all of the sanded areas, I waited a few minutes and then rubbed over the surface with a soft cloth to remove excess ink. The only ink remaining is on the areas where the foil is removed....
I found it hard to capture the colour but you can just see it on the edges of the trees.
I mounted the embossed piece onto matching Mossy Meadow card, added a ribbon strip, a piece of Mossy Meadow twine over the top with a leaf embellishment. I stamped the sentiment onto matching card and embossed in Silver. If nothing else it definitely shines !!!
I hope that you all have a good day today, tensions are high here today, Soph has a deadline and an Exam, so keep everything crossed for her please.
Paul officially started his 'new role' yesterday, he said it was pretty much the same as any other day, apart from a new Identity card oh and more money 😉😛🤩.
Love and hugs to all of you,
