Paper Trey Ink and Creative Cuts and More




Hi all!!! I am so excited to share these little creations with you...I had an absolute blast making them! I probably over did it with the embellishments, but I couldn't help myself...I just got carried away. If you click on the picture, you can probably see the deets better.

I used SU's Real Red for the cardstock. Then, using my Circle Nesties, I used Paper Trey Ink's "A Wreath for All Seasons." I used the wreath on the card and just gold embossed it and added some red rhinestones. I used gold paper using my Circle Nesties...(I found that gold paper at Hobby Lobby, Geez I love that store, oh...and that store loves me too). Then I used a doily behind the gold paper. Found some poinsettia's that I have had stashed for over a year and added some Diamond glitter and gold glitter dots . Next comes my fave...the sleigh from Creative Cuts and More (CC&M). I actually ordered it in a beautiful dusty gold, but it did not match the gold on my card, so I covered it with this gold paper. Used my circle nesties to gold emboss the Merry Christmas, which also came from PTI's "A Wreath for All Seasons." added a little holly and berry embelli. Put some Flower Soft Polar White on the bottom of the sleigh for reasons we know...and more poinsetties at the top...then I found these cute little packages at, of course, Hobby Lobby and put them in the sleigh.

What else can I say? Fun, fun, fun!!!! I have a whole lot of more CC&M die cuts that I cannot wait to use...they are SO inexpensive and make an addition to a card even better!!! Go by CC&M and check out all of the great stuff they have...another plug for them...they have this AMAZING Super "Killer Red Tacky Tape in different sizes...I have 1/2", 1/4" and 1/8". They have also just added some White Tacky Tape that you can just tear off. Just think, I could have put candy or cookies in that sleigh to give to a friend at work that would have made it even more special...but I liked the packages...shoulda found a Santa, but where would he sit? This is also for the Caardvarks Challenge here!

Have a great week peeps and thanks for your great comments and visits...I will be making my rounds again soon!

I love the gold sleigh with the poinsettias, really classy. Didn't need a Santa. I really like the wreath too. Hopefully you were talking about me as the lady at work you are going to give it to.

There is no such thing as overdoing it on the embellishments-what a great creation, would make great centerpieces for the holidays! I didn't know your e-mail to respond about John Mayer, but I agree with you, love his music but he has a lot of growing up to do when it comes to how to treat women :-) Have a great weekend!

Elena said...
