I'm so excited to finally have time to make some cards! I used this week's mojo sketch and There She Goes color combo as inspiration and also this card by gbedwright that I've had tucked away in my favorites for a while!
I started off by layering the baja breeze & My Mind's Eye dp onto the ruby red cardstock base, and then cut out the center circle with a nestability. It took a few passes (taking out a center circle layer each time) to get all the layers cut. I then used another nestie to cut a red circle border, and also cut the circle in the center.
After stamping the Taylored Expressions birdcage on Gina K heavy duty cardstock, I cut it out, taped some embroidery floss to the back, and then wrapped the floss around the red circle, adhering with tape. Then adhered the red circle and used the bow to cover up the floss and tape.
I stamped Inkadinkado snowflakes onto Baja Breeze for the inside panel.
I stamped the sentiment onto PTI Ripe Avocado and heat embossed. Trimmed the edge with a border punch, added a button and floss.
My DH better be meeting me under the mistletoe after all this work! :)
