Here's the view from our waterfront campsite. The sunsets are incredible!
Two Great Blue Herons were flying & landing at the river which goes along a little city park where we always take a break. Managed to get a picture when one of them landed fairly close. We have them at home, too, but I'm always excited to see them.
Got the trailer unloaded & decided to make a card I've been thinking about in my head. I'm determined to spend less on postage this Christmas, so I'm working on flatter designs. This card uses 3 of my very old, well loved DeNami stamps. We used these holly stamps in one of the first classes I took 15+ years ago. I loved the look of the line stamp not exactly lined up over the solid one & I still do. The gold is Delicata Golden Glitz which I embossed with clear powder for the sentiment. The green ink is PTI Simply Chartreuse.
I have lots of options for the berries, but since I was aiming for a flat card I went old school & punched 3 circles from a red cardstock scrap & covered them with red Stickles. The finishing touch was to add some texture by partially embossing with an old Cuttlebug folder--one of the first ones I bought. There's definitely an art to one layer cards & I'm getting happier with my results as I keep practicing. I'm entering these challenges: Merry Monday, One Layer Christmas Card Challenge, City Crafter Challenge Blog, CAS-ual Fridays & Pixies Snippets Playground. Thanks so much for all the support--your comments brighten my day!
