I just can't help myself-that shimmer paint is just plain habit forming!
The snow was made by tearing Whisper White paper into strips and painting them with Frost White shimmer paint. After I arranged them on my Real Red card base I simply trimmed them to fit and added some Dazzling Diamonds to the torn edges. The trees are from Patterned Pines, a level 1 hostess set, the sentiment is from Christmas Classics, the snowflakes are from Serene Snowflake and the presents are from a retired SU set. The trees were inked with Garden Green and daubed with shimmer paint.
The first year I stamped my Christmas cards was not pretty because I waited until December 10 to even start. The first 5 or so were not so bad but I wanted glitter on them (Night of Navy cardstock, angel stamp you know it screams glitter!) and I didn't know about the 2-Way Glue pen so I was using Elmers-yes I said Elmers. Do you know how long it takes for a blob of Elmers to dry????? FOREVER!!!!! And I was under a deadline-how fast can the Post Office deliver these and I had a gift exchange to go to AND THIS IS MY LAST FREE NIGHT UNTIL CHRISTMAS!
Anyway I soon gave up the glitter (GASP!) and made my cards groaning and complaining about how this was so not fun!
When I handed out my cards I put them in envelopes then put the names on them so some people got glitter some did not but no favoriticism just blind chance. Okay there is a purpose to this story. After that I promised myself:
(1) I would make my Christmas cards early!
(2) They would be fun to make!
(3) They would have glitter and/or bling (with a 2-Way Glue Pen not Elmers!) so
MY CHRISTMAS CARDS ARE FINISHED!!!!!! ALL 75 OF THEM!!!!! In celebration I am eating the last of the Halloween kisses!!
