Here's the sketch:
And here's my card, it's time to start cranking on the Christmas cards, so this will be one of my designs:
My card has a variety of firsts as well:
- First time I've folded the striped grosgrain ribbon. I've cut it before, and utilized the awesome fringe that comes out of that, but never folded it to get a skinnier ribbon.
- Also the first time I've tried Very Vanilla craft covered by clear EP to get a Very Vanilla sentiment on dark paper.
- First time I've used Valentine's Day DSP on a Christmas card!
- And for good measure, the Merry Moments DSP is the first DSP I ever purchased.
Did you see that? The extra red dot before the "W"? That's also the first smudge I've posted on my blog! I'm of the opinion that these are handmade cards, and will therefore not usually be perfect, and so I don't stress about smudges like that. :-)
Thanks so much for checking out my new blog!
