Rain, Rain Go Away...
Yep, its raining, but what else do you expect in the NW in the fall? However, the wet and the gloom make for a perfect opportunity to stay inside and make cards. I did that yesterday and hope to do so today. And I actually got two cards done! The one I'm posting today is for JUGs challenge 54 and Waltzingmouse sketch challenge 18.
The JUGs challenge was to use acetate on your project. I haven't done alot of things using acetate, but after buying some Hero Arts clear cards recently I'm inspired to try it more often. I stamped the clear card with the Hero Arts DB Holly Flourish using Stazon Cloud White and let it dry. I used the WMS set Very Vintage Christmas and a Prickly Pear Stamps set called Clearly Beautiful Trees that I won recently from Prickly Pear. The set has a matching tree die and I won that, as well.
After diecutting and then stamping all the bits and pieces using SU! Riding Hood Red & Memento Bamboo Leaves, I distressed the edges with Close to My Heart Parchment. Some tiny sparkles were added to the trees and I finished it off with a bow made from PTI's New Leaf ribbon. I have a shot (not a very good one, though) of the interior, as well.
Thanks for taking a peek... hope your weekend was nice and dry!
