How is your weekend thus far? I hope your weekend has been fun, with perfect Christmas gifts purchased and perhaps some crafty time squeezed in! My weekend has been good: yesterday I went with my sister-in-law and my cute as a button niece and nephew to see the new Penguins of Madagascar movie. Afterwards we had lunch and discussed important topics such as the upcoming school Christmas concert, what they wrote to Santa, and how my nephew wished he could wear his Santa hat to kindergarten. They really are the sweetest little kids. Hearing them discuss Christmas, seeing the sparkle in their eyes and the grins on their faces makes my heart smile.
Today I would like to share a grunge card I made last week. The card was started when I purchased the Tim Holtz Holiday Flashcards set:
The base was made with corrugated board (yes, I am addicted to it) and it was stained with Peeled Paint and Vintage Photo. Next, Kaisercraft paper (Twig & Berry) was cut to size and distressed with my Zutter. White paper was stained using Barn Door then dry embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder. The embossed paper and the Cheer flash card were distressed using Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo and Antique Linen. Next was the bell:
The bell was too fun to make. (And yes, I am also addicted to crackle.) Card board was die cut using Sizzix' Bigs Die "Christmas Bells, stained, clear crackle applied and then stained again. Seam binding (thanks, Janice!) was used to make the double bow. Impression Obsession die "Pine Sprig Cluster" provided the bow bling.
This card was a good excuse to play with ink, crackle and corrugation...but really, who needs an excuse to craft? :)
Thanks for stopping by! Have a good Sunday.
