First is a card for SSS Flickr Challenge #84. The theme is holiday, my favorite cards to make. I also love foil & couldn't resist the new Gina K Fancy Foils--absolutely gorgeous in real life! I got the red & green--should have also gotten the silver.
Unfortunately, I could not get good results with my cheap laminator, so gave in & ordered the one Gina K uses. Under $40, so not too bad. Until it arrives, I'm back to using self-adhesive foam, which works great. I had no trouble cutting the Memory Box ornament, even though the string & bow are very narrow. You just press on the foil & voila!
The PTI frame was sitting on my table, but I wasn't happy with the plain white. What a difference with simply brushing on a white metallic watercolor. The card front was covered with a piece of green glitter cardstock that's pretty expensive, but I got it on sale last year. So beautiful & totally no mess. The word from SSS Joyeux Noel was cut from black scraps & stacked 4 high. A single gem seemed like the only embellishment needed. I'm also entering CropStop, HLS Anything Goes with Dies & The Snippets Playground.
Next is my tag inspired by the one Tracey made for Day 16 of The 25 Days of Christmas Tags. I don't have a die like she used, so instead I used a Penny Black stamp from christmas wishes.
I fussy cut the top of the tag & used a PPP die for the bottom. I tried many angles & lights, but just couldn't get decent pictures. I'm also entering HLS Christmas Challenge & SSS Monday. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
