Season's Sweetings

Isn't that a cute sentiment and a cute image? I used my new Taylored Expressions stamps to make this card.
The image was stamped in Memento black and colored with Copic markers. I added some shimmer using my Spica glitter pens (clear and silver). The ornaments are Swarovski crystals (3 mm).
Again, the sketch I used is by Jen and you can check it out HERE.

After stamping this card I decided it was time to start Christmas shopping. I don't like to stress out at the last minute, so my hubby and I went and got a head start today (actually this is our 2nd trip, but who's counting?)! :) I am SO excited about the things I got them and can't wait for Christmas day! Nothing makes me happier than their smiling faces! It makes me all warm and fuzzy inside! :)
Jody Rules:
  • When adhering crystals, use a TINY dab of liquid glue (I use crystal effects) and if any squishes out, wipe it off with your paper piercer or something.
  • If after taping ribbon to the back of your card, it is bulky, attach your base mat to your card base with dimensional boosters to prevent the layer from pulling from the card base.
  • When using a repetitive patterned paper (like the one I used today), trim the piece you need deliberately, making sure to keep it symmetrical.

  1. Jody This card is so Cute. I think it has such a sweet looking card. Love the print you chose with the velvet zig zag ribbon..
