I'm ba-aaack! :o)
Well, probably not entirely. At least not in the post-a-new-card-everyday sort of way, but the good news is I am back at stamping on an as needed basis, and I'm enjoying it, which is more than I could have said at any single point in the last 12-18 months. It has been nearly 18 months since I have sat down and been creative. Oh, I've made a few cards in that time, but all were duplicates of past creations. Nothing really spontaneous, until now. I decided this year that I needed to stop buying cards and start making them again, so I whipped up a batch of thank you cards for friends and family using Pink Cat Studio's Itty Bitty Christmas set and an older SU! Paisley Print background.
Here is a close up of the glitter snow detail:
You know, I kind of forgot how time consuming a set of ten cards could be. It took me a few days to complete this, which surprised me. I also found that *gasp* I've forgotten the names of some of my colored cardstock that I never filed properly. Time to dig out the old catty's I guess, and do a little matching! I could never forget my beloved Riding Hood Red though. Man, I love that color....
And finally a quick glance at the inside of the card. I am usually bad about leaving this part of the card empty, without insert OR embellishment. I'm going to try to be better about that (and coordinating envelopes) because I think they really lend so much to the overall presentation, don't you?
