Christmas around the corner

I know it's just September but like I always tell my kids/grand kids....once September comes watch out because.... WHAM, it's December.

So, I decided to start on my Christmas cards, this year a little early.

Here is one that I made, the other day, trying to use up some dsp that I bought at a yard sale.

I used Cherry Cobbler and Wild Wasbi inks and Cherry Cobbler card stock.

I adhered the DSP onto a Cherry Cobbler card and then, I used the snowflakes embossing folder from Provo Craft and embossed a white piece of card stock and then sponged it with Wild Wasabi.

I punched out a scalloped circle from the white embossed card stock and layered it over the DSP that was layered to the card, so that the DSP showed through.

Then, I adhered a smaller scalloped circle in the middle with the coffee cup stamped on it.  You can't tell in the photo, but I added some glitter pen to the steam coming out of the cup....and added a tiny pearl to the middle of the snowflake.

I layered a strip of DSP between to the bottom of the card and adhered a white modern label punch stamped with Merry Christmas to a red modern label punch (which had been cut in half and layered so that it stuck out either end).  I added a pearl to each end of the label.

Hopefully, I can make a few cards, each week, we'll see how it goes.  I always have good intentions :-)

Have a great day!!!
