5. Best #Book of 2017. I honestly didn’t read much this year, and I’m not done with this one, but I’m really enjoying “Ka: Dar Oakley in the Ruin of YMR” by John Crowley. And I love this fierce crow on the cover! #decemberreflections2017 #nook #

2017 Christmas Card #1


Hey, everyone! Here’s one of the Christmas cards I made for this year using the "Coolest Yulest" stamp set and matching dies from Simon Says Stamp, as well as two stitched circle dies and a stitched rectangle die also from SSS. I used the stitched circles to cut out the corrugated kraft paper and white card stock and layered them together with Tombow Mono Adhesive. The small reindeer was die cut from silver glitter paper I bought at Michael's and ahered tot he circles using the Xyron Sticker Maker.  These were all layered over a piece of blue card stock die cut with the stitched rectangle die and adhered to a kraft card base. I created the sentiment ("Wishing you a Merry Christmas") from those included in the "Coolest Yulest" stamp set and embossed it with silver embossing powder. These cards were super quick and easy to make, and I ended up putting 12 of them together in a little over an hour. I am planning to use the same design for another set of 12 cards, but use red card stock instead of blue, and gold glitter paper for the deer, and gold embossing powder for the sentiment instead of silver. I do have several other Christmas stamps, stamp sets, and dies I would like to use this year, and I will share them here if I manage to get any of them done! Have a great day! Cheers!
