Hi there! I was just over at the JustRite blog ooohing and ahhing over the newest stamps, (oh my goodness, they are gorgeous!!), and took a peek at the challenge and realized it ends in 2 hours! I was letting my camera batteries charge so that I could take my photo in the morning, because for some reason I thought that I had until tomorrow, oops! So I ran out into the fading light to get my photo, whew!
Challenge #56 is shaped holiday cards or tags. I used this image from the Christmas Treasures set. I embossed it in silver, I love the way it turned out! Then I cut 2 dies from Spellbinders Fleur de Lis and just criss crossed them. I then made a medallion, scoring the pleated folds with my Scor-Buddy, and cut the edges with a fleur de lis border punch to match. I added a pearl to each point, and the card back is a large circle nestie so it can stand. You could always add silver thread and make it into an ornament.
Well that's it for me today, thank you so much for stopping by, and for your sweet comments, have a great day. :)
