simply said, the paper makes the card. i chose these patterns because of their neural look. the cut makes the whole statement and you don't always need bright colors to 'say what you mean'. cut from my gypsy using 'INSPIRED HEART' @ width-5.11" height-3.00 for a standard A-2 card. the wisemen were cut from a metallic gold by recollections and matted.
on the other hand...this 'pink' definately makes a statement of it's own. not bright, but you know it's meant for 'you'. for my single gal friends i thought this would be a perfect card, (i also made this in blue) for the single men in my life! the inside sentiment is what inspired me to make this. "from our house to yours" by stampendous...appropriate, don't ya think? outhouse is cut from 'CAMP OUT' on my gypsy. width-2.63 height-3.59 from two different shades of pink. i used martha stewarts branch punch for a little green. hand cut the snowdrift. both the drift and white mat are run through the cuttlebug with the 'snowflakes' embossing folder. i stickled the snowflakes and set aside to dry before matting them on the pink. i popped up the drift , stamped 'merry christmas' and punched with an oval punch and popped that up as well. i hope you were refreshed from this heat with a little 'winter' fun.
thanks for stopping by! (((hugs)))
