Well, hello long lost crafty friends!!
Did you think I dropped off the face of the earth the last several days? After the last two weeks, I kind of feel like I could fall off the face of the earth. We finally got settled in our new house, and literally the next day we left on a two-day trip to Arizona. Phew! We’re here in AZ now, and enjoying the company of our daughter and son-in-law and two adorable grandsons – be still my heart! Gamma needs to get her baby fix because it’s long time until Christmas!
Anyways, I wanted to share a second card that I made with the brand spankin’ new Mama Elephant stamp set called Believe In Magic. This time I head embossed one of the snow globe bases with white embossing powder on white cardstock. I love that subtle effect that the tone on tone gives. I stamped the snow globe, cityscape and reindeer onto aqua polka dot paper, to look like snow. The sentiment was stamped onto red cardstock and cut out using some fishtail flag dies. Had to add some buttons and baker’s twine, just for fun.
