Simply Christmas

Hi! Sorry it's been so long since I've posted. We were trying to upgrade my husbands business phone service and in the process the new company deleted our internet service! YIKES! 5 days without internet!! But I can tell you, the house is clean, the laundry is caught up, and even my stamping studio is clean! That's a once a year event at best! Now, I can't find anything...LOL!

Because of our internet being down, I missed Midnight Madness Challenge this week. So in the absence of that card I decided to post this one. I made 50 of these for a custom card order. She wanted it very clean and simple, with a tree and wood paper. I gave her several samples to choose from and this was her favorite. You can not tell real well from this shot, but the white background is dry embossed with a diamond pattern. Just the perfect touch for this simple yet sparkly card. I bought this Christmas Tree stamp at least 10 years ago. It's one of my favorites. I embossed it with Snowflake Embossing Tinsel. It's a beautiful white but has a beautiful snowy sparkle added. I finished off the card with Silver Metallic thread. And the most tedious part of the whole card was corner rounding 600 corners! My thumb survived. :) I also finished off the inside of the card with holly corners and a beautiful sentiment. That picture did not turn out well so I couldn't post the inside...sorry.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
