Yearly Christmas Card???
Sorry I have been absent from my blog for so long! I have been playing around with ideas for my yearly Christmas card and had a REALLY tough time putting something together. I bought some of the new Memory Box dies and was trying to come up with ideas. My glitter paper does not seem to work with the dies because the back of the paper is too waxy. So that was making me mad since I wasted a bunch of paper trying to make it work! The snowflakes were done with glitter Doodlebug paper which works best, as far as I have found. I cannot even say where these papers came from- just random stuff in my boxes of Christmas paper....I really need to wittle down my stash!
The goal of my yearly Christmas card is one that is fairly easy to replicate many times and it has to be one that I would not be absolutely heart broken if someone threw out....although I think I would still be sad and just prefer not to know if anyone does! A little side note- I have kept almost every card I have ever received!!! Yes, I have a BIG box of cards!!
So this could be my yearly card..or not, I am still playing! Hopefully I will be back to more regular posting as the Christmas season approaches!
