Winter is Here

In the midst of single digit cold...I have the space heater on in my basement craft area and have been spending a little downtime relaxing. I worked on a few cards to get them off my table (as you can see in my non-CTMH Cards & Crafts Garden blog next door). 

I also put together this beauty, using the layers on the Classy Doily stamp.
It takes a bit of planning and my weeks leading up to Christmas were rather busy...I will just have to make Christmas items in July this year :). At any rate, I had the layers made (since bad) and it just needed to be put together.

I silver-embossed the Classy Doily on Champagne cardstock.
Then I embossed it again in black on Frosted paper and trimmed around the star-shaped layer. The inside star was embossed with glittery embossing powder on a Tim Holtz marbleized paper that matched. 

The silver-embossed sentiment is from Scandinavian Wishes (October SOTM), and I thought Joy was appropriate for a Thank You card, as in a gift bringing me joy. Then it's a matter of sticking it all together & stamping the inside with a Thank You sentiment. 

The ribbon is from my Dollar Store ribbon stash. That was quite a score last year! They had sheer ribbons in every color and I stocked up!  I hope I can find great deals like that this year! Thanks for looking today!


  1. Gosh! I love the sparkle of the embossing posders on this very pretty card.

  2. Thanks, Mo! I think I had better learn how to turn off the flash so it doesn't reflect so much LOL!
