Today was a kind of mediocre day. I don’t really have anything to tell you because not much went on. The weather was a little bit better today, it wasn’t so cold. I had dinner, came home, did the dishes, Andrew came over and we went to the gym. Like I said, not much went on. Oh wait, there was one good thing that happened yesterday! The new Occasions Catalog was posted on the Demo site yesterday morning and you are going to love it!
It’s Wednesday, so today I have my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge. This week’s sketch has a fun banner across it…
The base of today’s card is Bermuda Bay Card Stock. For the background I used a piece of paper from the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper Stack. To mix it up a little, I stamped the tree from the Special Season Stamp Set in Smoky Slate on Smoky Slate Card Stock and adhered it in the middle. My banner starts off with a piece of Whisper White Baker’s Twine that is threaded through two Brights Collection Designer Buttons and they are adhered to the card with Mini Glue Dots. The “joy” is from the A Banner Christmas Stamp Set, stamped in Bermuda Bay and cut out with my Paper Snips. The two ornaments are from the Very Merry Tags Stamp Set and they are stamped in Smoky Slate and punched out with the Mosaic Punch. All of my banner pieces are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I know I’ve used the blues a lot for Christmas cards this year, but I really really like them, and I’m very happy with my little tree in the middle. I appreciate your visit today to see my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge. Don’t forget to visit the blog to see what the other designers have come up with and enter your card in the gallery. I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!
