Hello Friends -
Today I have a card for the Bah Humbug Christmas Challenge. The theme is metallic. I wasn't certain what I would do for this one when I started (it's a given I'll do my best to play with the lovely ladies of Humbug Hall). However, while I was poking around at Hobby Lobby this week I found Quic Kutz metal sheets. Now that I start talking about this stuff, I could have used my favorite -- aluminum foil.
Before I blather on any longer I'll show you the card.
Isn't it fun? I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder which I ran through with that lovely metal sheet. One bonus to using these over aluminum foil -- they have adhesive on the back. They aren't very forgiving though. You can see a couple of little dings in the sheet from when it was at the store.
It seemed just a little bit blank if I didn't add something to the top so I pulled out Nesties Label 11 and cut out two of the smaller ones. I punch two holes in the sentiment tag and added some teeny tiny little brads to make it look like an actual label.
Here is a close-up of the tag.
What do you think? The lines are clean and the embossing makes a real impression (hehehe - pun intended).
I must say, I didn't think there would be a post for today. Life just seems to be getting in the way of my crafting. I wanted to play with paper but I found myself messing in the kitchen instead. The Wonderkid was responsible for his class's snack today. I'm not one to grab the bag of crackers and send him off but they won't let me send anything with sugar (or much sugar I sort of cheated this week).
This is what I made.
The other thing getting in the way of my paper crafting
blog. Every Wednesday she joins with some other ladies and shows you what is on her work desk. Well, this disaster is what is on my work desk and it is KEEPING me from crafting. Whenever I start using vinyl, it comes out and recently I found a need for the HTV, also. So it came out. Then somehow every embellie in the world jumped out of the boxes. I need to wrangle all of the St. Patrick's Day things and smash them back in their boxes since I don't think I can get away with making any more St. Paddy's Day cards.
So, I'm back to organizing. I've been talking about getting the Nesties in order and I need to work on the embossing folders. I feel like I need to do a google search every time I start a blog entry because I can't remember the names of most of them. Anyway, I'll pop back in tomorrow to let you know about my progress.
Don't forget about my birthday giveaway. You still have a couple of days to enter if you haven't already.
I'm also entering this card in Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge.
