Oh. My. Gosh. I know it gets busy leading up to, and over Christmas and New Year’s, but seriously, given how we’d planned something fairly “low-key”, I wasn’t expecting time to whiz by as it did. So here I am, almost the END of January, and I’m only now saying… Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I do so hope you had a wonderful time however you may have celebrated 😉
Now back to creating… it’s Monday which means… MOJO MONDAY! This week the ladies are trying something different over at the MOJO blog with the card shape – this week its tall and skinny like me, so NOT! This is it…
My card size is 3.5″x5.5″ and is a flip top for a change. The base of my card is Naturals Ivory. Onto this I’ve used some beautiful Sweet Sorbet DSP and run a piece of Naturals Ivory through with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder, both of which can be yours FREE with every $60 you spend through until March 31 courtesy of Sale-a-Bration 2014!
Then as I’ve made this card as a thank you to the couple who moved into our house to look after the cats and kids whilst Hubby and I were away a couple of weeks ago, from the Spring Catalog I’ve used one of the dies from the On Film set in Early Espresso to aptly frame a photo I took whilst in Tallinn.
This is layered on top of a strip of Crumb Cake that I’ve stamped with the Gorgeous Grunge again in Early Espresso. The ribbon is the beautiful 1/2″ Seam Binding in Daffodil Delight to pick up the subtle yellow in the DSP.
As an embellishment I’ve stamped directly onto one of the Essentials Wooden Elements from the Spring Catalog with Early Espresso Classic Ink, sponging the edges with both the Pistachio Pudding and Baked Brown Sugar, adhering it with some Sticky Strip. Talking of sponging, I also sponged the edges of the DSP and embossed strip before adhering it to the base.
