It was absolutely freezing here yesterday and the wind was between 25 and 40 MPH at any given point during the day. BRR! I ran some errands yesterday, finished my bookmarks and got some other crafty projects done. It was just too cold to be outside! I’m glad you enjoyed my little holiday pictures from Manhattan yesterday. There will be plenty more to come in the future. I have to go back and take a picture of the tree once it’s finished. My boss is back from Israel today, I’m sure she’ll be spending most of her day catching up on about 3,000 emails!
The only good thing about Monday is that it’s time for the Paper Players! This week is a shaped card challenge from Jaydee…
I don’t know why, but I’m not a huge fan of shaped cards so I decided to keep mine simple. The base for my card is Sahara Sand Card Stock. I used the Large Scallop Edgelit to trim off the bottom of the front of the card and replaced it with some Brushed Gold Card Stock. A few angled snips on each of the top sides and a hole in the middle and voila, we have a tag! I used a piece of Brushed Gold Card Stock cut out with the Festive Flurry Framelits Dies for the base of my images. The ornaments are from last year’s Ornament Keepsakes Stamp Set, which is still available. They are stamped in Bermuda Bay, Pear Pizzazz and Cherry Cobbler, cut out with the Holiday Ornaments Framelits Dies and adhered to the snowflake with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My greeting is a piece of Basic Black cut out with the Expressions Thinlits Dies and adhered to the ornaments with 2-Way Glue. The finishing touch is a piece of Basic Black 3/4″ Chevron Ribbon tied with a piece of Whisper White Baker’s Twine. While I may not be a fan of shaped cards, I do love tags, so I figured that would be a perfect compromise for today’s card. I love the color combination and I think the greeting looks neat in the Basic Black. I hope you enjoyed my take on Jaydee’s shaped card challenge for this week’s Paper Players. As always, thanks so much for taking time out of your day to come check out my blog! 🙂
