I found Marina's My Perfect Life blog through City Crafters, she is the guest artist there this week (stop by, its all so beautiful.) Marina's blog has a challenge to make 1 Christmas card per week and link up to her blog to keep us motivated. Heavens knows I need motivation to get my Christmas cards done before the last minute. Of course I have the greatest of intentions, I will try my best to do this and stay with it, but please don't be too hard on me if I don't OK?
I used a Gecko Galz image from the Darling Girls collage set, along with Gecko Galz paper set called Wild Roses. I wanted the ribbon to look like a shiny satin so I tried adding some Diamond Glaze, a brand new bottle and it was full of bubbles, not sure why, I did not shake it, but I did store it upside down. I added some pretty pink pearl nail polish on top of it to hide the bubbles a bit. I must say I normally use Stampin Up Crystal Effects and I never had this problem, I store it upside down too. I also added some white flocking to her muff and the trim of her hat. I used Ranger Distress ink on the edges, a combination of tea dye and frayed burlap. I lined my envelope with the matching paper. Well that's it, thanks for looking and for all your sweet comments. ~Diane
