On my last post I mentioned that it was supposed to cool off and it sure did. I had to wear a jacket this weekend and almost turned on the heat. Forget Fall – I am almost ready for Winter!! Or at least for a Winter Blog Hop. Check back on Thursday, September 22 for the start of the Sparkle N Sprinkle’s Magical Winter Moments Blog Hop. To get you in the spirit I have a simple little card to show you.
If you are a regular visitor to my blog you already know I have a hard time with simple cards but this one was fun to make. I guess the addition of the embossing and different glitters satisfied my need for details and bling. Since I make 40 or more Christmas cards each year, it is nice to have something easy to make but still looks classy.
I started with the image, Tiny Tree, from Sparkle N Sprinkle. This is one of their new images and it can also be purchased as part of their Tis The Season set. I simply heat embossed it, dry embossed around it, and colored it. I layered it on red and green cardstock and added glitter. For full details on how to make this card go to the Sparkle N Sprinkle website here.
We will see you on Thursday when I will have two more fun card ideas for you. You might want to start at the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog to get all the details and the list of awesome Design Team Members who have created some amazing winter magic!!
