I'M GETTING THERE...
Mahalo for the well wishes ladies, they are appreciated! Am feeling a bit better, but have a way to go. But what could be better medicine than making a few cards!?!
I received an order for 20 Christmas cards and was anxious to get to them. When I was on the mainland I bought things to do with snowflakes. Just my luck, the customer wants snowmen! Snowflakes and snowmen are a perfect match! This is the 1st card design, there will be 4 in the series, 5 of each design. I embossed the light and dark blue paper with snowflake stamps and "Stardust" emb. powder, also the little snow flakes around the snowman and scalloped edges. (Also added a little blue stamp ink on those edges - the circles were done with my Nestabillities.) I love the snowflake corners - they were made with my new "Martha Stewart" punch set (Also got the side one and will use it later!). Another new goodie I got at the convention in Tucson is the "puffed" looking snow beneath the snowman. It's called Liquid Applique. When you put the heat gun on it, it puffs up and looks just like snow! Too Cool!! Then added some ribbon and the metal snowflake charms - got those at Micheals. All in all, I really like this card, sure hope my customer does too!
