Well, I know it's all over with, but I have one last Christmas card to share with you today. So... I went to the LSS on the 22nd of December. I had finally finished up one of those punch cards buying a lot of my favorite consumables. I try to go a couple of times a month and get something because I really want to support them. Well, I had a gift card and my full punch card burning a hole in my pocket, so I went by and was probably in there for over an house deciding how to spend my freebies. Well, needless to say, I spent a LOT more than what I had freebies for, but it was Christmas. Help 'em out, right? Hee! Hee! So anyway... what I decided to go crazy with was a bunch of goodies from Flower Soft. I have had a couple of the jars of fiber from them, but that was about it. I got a bunch of other things from them to try out. This is one of those things.
Now... I get this stuff, get home, pick a drawer for all the new goodies and put it away. As many of you already know, we had 16 over for Christmas Dinner. We celebrated our family Christmas with my parents on Christmas Eve. We had a couple of things to get to take care of Christmas Dinner, so we stopped by the store. My Dad dropped us off at the door and then picked us up when we left. When we got back to our house, my Dad handed me two Nook gift cards he picked up for my Mom for Christmas and said... "You have an extra Christmas card or two sitting around for these, right?" WHAT?!? SERIOUSLY?!? NO!!! So... in about 20 minutes, this is what I came up with.
I quickly measured the dome that is by this company and fired up the Cricut and Gypsy. I took an existing file with my card mats on it and stuck this oval in the center. The oval cut is from CTMH Art Philosophy. I also added the white scalloped border. I cut the label shape on the bottom as well. The church scene is from one of their kits with the domes, so I kinda rushed and cut all the layers. The sentiment was on the cut out page as well.
I popped the oval around the dome and all the layers in the kit. I added some stickles on the church and a little glitter and snow inside the dome.... Quickly stuck it all together and added a bow. Then it was back to dinner. I didn't have time to shoot the inside picture (forgot actually) but I used the same blue paper for the inside and the white oval from the center of the scalloped oval for the sentiments inside.
I was so pleased this the way this card turned out and she just loved it. If ya'll haven't tried this flower soft stuff, it's really fun and I can't wait to play more with it. If you need a source for it, I get mine from our LSS. Their website is http://www.scrapbooksforeverbranson.com. I don't think that she has shopping on the site, but if you call, she can send anything and is wonderful to work with.
Well, that's it for today! I would love to know what ya'll think about this card. Thanks for spending time with us today!
