25...

Hey friends!  Are you curious about my blog post title?  Doesn't have to do with my age, lol, but with this week's CASology cue:  number.  Many directions you can go in... just check out the fun cards posted by the CASology design team.   Me... I went with a Christmas card.  A little over a year ago I got caught up in the excitement of getting a good online deal and purchased a bundle of BasicGrey 25th & Pine products from Peachy Cheap.  I mainly wanted the 6x6 pad of paper (which has not been used AT ALL!) and not necessarily all the little do-dads that came along with it.  Some of the do-dads have been used, but I still have many, many more patiently waiting to be put to some kind of purpose.  And now the wait is finally over for a few more... three in fact, lol!   As I used two shades of green (light and dark) and red I will be posting this to the current Merry Monday challenge, as well.  I didn't like the look of the pieces placed against the white cardstock panel so I die cut a label from red cardstock for the pieces to be layered on.  After those were attached I decided to add a little bow/clothes pin detail to the piece.  I should have taken the clothes pin apart and made it look like I used the whole thing instead of using the whole pin.  It would have resulted in a far less "lumpy" card.  Oh well... live and learn.  Not a lick of stamping on this card, either... but I love how it turned out!  I'm also adding this to Addicted to Stamps & More:  holiday. 

 

Thanks for stopping by today...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  Recollections white, Stampin Up! Real Red; BasicGrey 25th & Pine do-dads; Dies:  Stampin Up! label die, Avery Elle Dotted Elements; mini clothes pin, off white and red thin hemp twine
