While on my last trip I found that I needed to change my mind set and forget about all the goodies i could have used on my project and focus on what i did have. Hmmm, I am sure there is a lesson in there somewhere. Anyway, while I was making this card I yearned for some Dazzling Diamonds glitter and could not believe i did not pack any. I know, I know what was I thinking? So, this card though it could use some glittery goodness is for my non glitter loving friends ( you know who you are so i won't mention names!)
Stamps: Gifts of Christmas
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Paper: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede, Always Artichoke, Deck the Halls dsp
Big Shot: Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Scallop Square duo
DooDahs: Cherry Cobbler seam binding and Basic Rhinestones (you know I would have some kind of bling!)
I cheated a little when I packed. I chose one embossing folder and embossed each color of cardstock I brought on the road. I also cut out some scallop squares from the Scallop Square duo Bigz die. In this sample I pieced two of the scallop squares together to make a rectangle scallop to frame my main image. Tricky huh? I did not bring any punches with me due to the weight and also because i could not decide on which ones to take. This is a quick card to make and I hope you like it!
