I was inspired by Carole's September 23rd, 2012 post, Triangle Card. When I looked at it, my brain said, "Wait, wait, what?" I love things like that! It was simmering on the back burner for a couple of days when I happened on the H2H Challenge blog again. When I saw there was a Christmas challenge, I knew that I had to make this star-thing work. So here it is:
I designed it so that it will fit into a 5" X 7" envelope. It's too puffy in this incarnation - although it does fit. I have since reworked it in my mind, but not remade it yet.
The puffiness is pretty awesome, if it doesn't have to go through the post!!
Here's the big unveil...
There was no room to sign it, and I didn't want that to be on the back, so this is my fix:
For this project I used the stamp set, Ruby sparkles, Cashmere ribbon, and paper from the Workshops on the Go Partridge & Pear Cardmaking Kit. I shaded the Cashmere ribbon with Cocoa ink (using a sponge), being careful not to use too much because then it would just look dirty.
No envelope yet. I will get there after I make this puppy lie flat!!
Merry Christmas!! It's never too early to start on those handmade gifts and cards. (I keep telling myself. I don't always listen, but I keep telling myself!!)
