So for my card, my embellishments are obviously the sequins. Yes, there are three of them, but I'm counting them as "1" embellishment. Shhhhhh, don't tell Alma! I combined three stamp sets to create this simple holiday card that is pretty flat and perfect for mailing. The NESTING, JOLLY HOLIDAY, and TREE-MENDOUS, stamp sets make this card fast and easy to create (and recreate), too. The background piece was made using some of the newest CutUps dies, FRAMED UP and the CHEVRON, a super cool background die that I haven't even started to tap the potential of. I love the simplicity of this card and the colors! Must use them again for sure!
Ok, I've got a few things on the agenda today, so I'll be back soon with something new to share. I'm going to have to put on my cranky pants if I don't get to create more than just a card here and there! Eric does need to go back to work so I can get back to my routine!
HERE is all you need to know to play along and link up in our challenge to obtain some TCP goodies of your very own!
SUSIE Q-TIP: Just like using embossing folders to create subtle backgrounds, I'm so excited about the new trend in die cut backgrounds coming to card-making. Several of these are manufactured as 4x6 (approx.) dies. This doesn't mean you have to use them in that size and shape. Once cut, adhere them to an underlying piece of cardstock and cut again using another die of your choice to create cool textured shapes.
