I haven't been about as much this week but no doubt as everyone else is mad busy in the run up to Christmas, I won't have been missed.
I've mananged to visit a couple of blogs over the last few evenings but to be honest I'm dog tired when I get home every night and am struggling to do anything apart from flop down on the sofa then take myself to my bed!
Have several cards that I finished and didn't share yet so here's one for now......
I was inspired by another card maker, Steph, who's forte is clean and simple cards, and she had done a version of this in black and white which was lovely, so I had a go at CASEing it.
I used white pearlised cardstock and printed the sentiment in dark grey ink.
I have had some dark grey satin ribbon for eons and have always wondered what to use it on other than sympathy cards, but as I had some grey pearlised cardstock I decided to try using the grey/white colour scheme for this card.
Some snowy white cotton lace and the grey ribbon were stuck onto the white card just below the sentiment and I added a tiny silver wreath charm under the bow.
I layered it onto the grey card then onto white again and was really pleased with the simplicity of this card - it's recipient took the trouble to mail me telling me how beautiful she thought it was so that made me happy too!
The added bonus was that it was real quick to do - so I made a few of them using different colours for the sentiment and adding co-ordinating ribbon. I also used up my entire stash of christmas charms (which weren't many really!! LOL), so will have to buy some more for next year! (Any excuse).
