Daily Special - Christmas In August

Good Evening Everyone! Here is a last minute card I made tonight. Sorry the pictures came out a bit dark but I only realized how they looked until after I loaded them on to my computer. I was too lazy to retake the pictures.

Just another Christmas card I made to add to my collection. Jus' preparing for Christmas. I really need to start now because I'm rather slow in making cards lately. I had planned to sit down and make a bunch of cards but all I managed to make were this card and the matching tag below. Time just seem to fly and I swear I don't know where my day goes.

I stamped the image using Buckaroo Blue ink and inked the whole image with Versamark, applied clear embossing powder and heat embossed it. I thought it still looked a bit bland so I covered the whole image with repositional glue and applied glitter all over. It muted the colors of the image which I didn't want to happen but I liked it with the glitter so I decided to keep it.

Here's the matching tag I made for the card. The same process to create the card was done with the tag using the same materials.

I'm going to lunch with a stampin' buddy tomorrow. We're gonna talk about stamping. . .what else, right. What else could we possibly be interested in talking about besides stamping?

Anyway, what do you think of the color combo? I like them. They're sort of non-traditional but still a little touch of tradition shows through.

Well goodnight everyone. . .it's bed time.
