Today, at Merry Monday, Lesley and her team are looking for elegant Christmas cards. I lucked out and had these two embossed pieces on my desk already - just asking to be used. (Next week, I'm going to have to move away from Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla, 'cause I used them last week too)
Embossing is always elegant (and magical) so this wonderful Snow Swirled tree came out to be used. I had tried to stamp the greeting on a piece of ribbon, but it just got too messy, so I stamped a piece of Vanilla, cut the strip close to the words and then ran my craft scissors over the paper as though I were curling a piece of gift wrap ribbon. It breaks down the fibers wonderfully and they curve.
Now I'm off to add some paint to a canvas for another mixed media piece....we'll see how it turns out.
Hope your day is flowing along wonderfully - thanks for stopping by!
