My friend, Theresa is celebrating her birthday on Tuesday : ) she shares her birthday with our oldest daughter, Kelly. I pulled out some stickers! to make these cards. That's right stickers.
I cut an extra face for my card a little bit smaller than the card base. I placed the stickers where I wanted them on the card face and stamped my sentiment. Then I cut the paper 3/8" from one long edge. Next I trimmed off a scant 1/8th inch piece from the other long edge and attached both pieces to the card base using foam tape. Finally I placed a smaller sticker in the center of each large snowflake - across the opening. Can you see the tiny silver specks? these are actually centers left behind after the large snowflake (in the first picture) was removed from the packaging.
Metallic papers are so hard to photograph huh? I know the pictures are a bit overexposed but I wanted the stark white and as much of the silver shine to show. Here are a couple close ups that I darkened a bit so you can see the detail in the snowflakes easier : )
I would like to enter my cards in the Virginia's View Challenge #9 All things Metallic. Please visit Virginia's blog and have a look at the wonderful cards made by participants from all over the world! There is still a little time perhaps you might like to consider joining these talented paper crafters by entering a card of your own! : )
That's it for my post but before I go I will share a picture of the Tamale makers and me : ) I had hoped to do a photo journal of the tamale making process but alas! The best laid plans are in the minds of (wo)men : ) Still! I will report that the tamales were outstanding!! as was the Mexican Flan that accompanied dinner.
|me, Renae and Matthew : )|
Our grandson's Mom was visiting from California and naturally Matt wanted her to make some of his old favorite recipes while she was here. She did not disappoint him! : ) or us!!
