I made this card today using my new stampin up set, Add a little Glitz . I love the big loopy "sparkle" sentiment. I played around trying to emboss the words, with just plain red, then go back and add glitter, but nothing was lining up perfectly. So I used cherry cobbler and let the tree sparkle with all it's little jewels and also the glitter background paper. I tamed things down a bit with the ribbon, I think it goes well with the wood grain background.
I've also been working on a few little packages for my family and friends. I had these little cello bags on hand for a long time, and didn't know what to do with them. I did put puppy treats in them for a craft fair that didn't happen. 😞but nevertheless, I had a bunch left over and look how wonderful they turned out. I want to make more, but we only bought one package of the Hershey nuggets. Gosh no wonder they are wrapped in gold paper, They are expensive little chocolates. I searched around until I found a little tray template that I thought would work.
UYS #291 - Woodgrain
Hopefully tomorrow I will start writing out my Christmas cards. It will ease my mind to have one more thing checked off the list. I was able to finish our little tree today. Perhaps tomorrow I'll post a picture of it. Nothing big anymore. I just can't do it with my legs/back. But I'm very happy with our little tree, and our few decorations.
Thank you for stopping in for a visit.
I'd love to have you sign up and follow my blog.
Keep Smiling and Keep Stamping.
