It's that time to put finishing touches on teacher gifts and create cards that will accompany those gifts. I like using the "heavy" embellishments for cards that won't be mailed, but rather hand delivered. When I say "heavy", I just mean things that have a lot of dimension or that won't travel well through the mail. These pearls are one of those things. I LOVE using them, but when I saw a card I sent someone with some pearls that were split in half when they arrived, it made me rethink using them. :) I don't always use a lot of embellishments to begin with, so to have the ones I do use end up demolished kind of defeats the purpose! So when I can hand deliver a card, I load it up with embellishments like this! :)
For this card, I used the Sparkle & Cheer
set from Taylored Expressions. I added some Kaisercraft Pearls
in red and pearl for the bulbs on the tree. I die cut the image using the Plain Oval Nestabilities
and sponged around the edges of the die. I used the Take Note Die 3
for behind the focal piece.
I tied some ribbon and added a Christmas Tree Trinket stick pin
and finally, the sentiment tag tied with some Baker's Twine
Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful day!
Lovely card! I love the layout too.
Just place a single layer of bubble wrap over the front of your card to protect it! It's a great way to reuse bubble envelopes. Just cut them up and add a piece with the card in the envelope.
Pretty, pretty, pretty! Love the gems on your tree!
This is SO gorgeous, Charmaine. Love the ornaments on the tree.
