Monday again! And the final countdown to Christmas! And my last few Christmas cards for the year.
Today’s card came about in an unusual way. I pewter embossed the pine branch on a piece of lost lagoon. I was intending to die cut either a stitched circle or a stitched oval out of the image. And then do something with it. But then I decided to cut the oval out of the soft sky and I liked the way it showcased the branch. So I decided to go with that!
I put the soft sky over the lost lagoon and decided to square up two of the edges. Then I did the same when I popped it up on the white base. A bit of ribbon and a sentiment added the finishing touches. (I did run the soft sky thru the linen impression plate because I just love the look of linen paper.) I am into these blue colors for some reason and I think they are some of my favorites of all the SU! colors.
Sorry for the bad lighting! My brother came by and borrowed my lamp that I use and so I had to wing it!
Thanks for stopping by today. Tomorrow I have a tag and not a card so be sure to pop in!
