So enough with the jibber jabber... I have made quite a few cards the past couple of weeks. This is one of them:
This standard size card is made up of both scraps and some collections I have had for a while that I just now broken out to use. I cannot remember the collection (the name) exactly. I have made the mistake of taking them out of the packaging or losing the front covers, so I couldn't tell you where they all came from. This was of course before I started blogging and when I started needing all this information. :'(
I made the card a second time and altered it. Instead of using the same patterned paper for the background, I embossed snow flakes on a plain blue cardstock. I used my white gel pen on the trees to make them look like they have been snowed on. : ) And I heat embossed the sentiment on a 1 3/4 inch black round cardstock.
Most of the time, I don't measure the elements I put on my cards or scrapbook pages. I eyeball pretty much everything. Whatever feels right or looks great is what ends up in my work.
