Are you in the mood for Christmas? Have you started making your Christmas cards yet? I signed up for a Christmas card swap with Bazzill Basics Paper. It's not too late for you to participate! Anyhoo, I make 10 cards (same design), mail them to Bazzill and get 10 cards back (1 of my own along with 9 from other card crafters). I also participated in their Halloween card swap a few weeks ago (see my October 2 blog post). Without further ado, here is a photo of the card I made for the swap:
green cardstock - Bazzill Basics
tree trunk & "branches" - Bazzill Basics - Believe collection
snowflake & Merry Christmas stamps - Stampabilities
garland - Wrights gold metallic baby rick rack
star & red gemstone embellishments - stash
I *love* the garland on the tree. I found the baby rick rack at Joann's. I had planned on either buying red or green baby rick rack to use as garland but when I saw the metallic gold I immediately changed my mind!
I have also been working on a card to submit to the Word Art Wednesday weekly challenge. The Bible verse that they are suggesting for this week is from Ephesians: "And be ye kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you." Here is the card I made for the challenge.
green cardstock - Stampin' Up
printed cardstock - Prima - Londonerry collection
hearts background stamp - Stampin' Up - Confetti stamp set
green netting - Webster's Pages vintage inspired netting
The Prima paper, which pictures three girls along with a bunny in front of them, had "sweet and kind" written all over it. I printed the Bible verse using a handwriting font, added a background stamp (hearts) and a green netting bow and adhered it all to green cardstock.
Finally, I wanted to remind everyone about my giveaway. You have until midnight Sunday night/Monday morning to leave your comments on the October 12 blog post.
