This card is from the Splitcoaststampers Challenge today - using foil paper. I love my foil paper but it's one of those things I save so I don't use it all up - silly how we do that. Yes, I know if I use it up I can actually order some more - go figure. After I posted this over at Splitcoaststampers.com I decided it needed a few changes. The inspiration for the card is from the Dec. 2007 cover of Paper Crafts Magazine.
There were two center copper snowflakes and no bling - I think adding two Colonial White snowflakes and a little orange gem really added to the card. The center is a little blurrly but it your coming for a class or crop you can see it in person.
I'm going to give this card to my Mom for Christmas - I'll include it in her box I'm mailing down to her - I don't think it would mail very well with the button on it.
This card measures: 5-1/2 X 4-1/4 and is top folded. The Stampin' Up! Brushed Copper Paper is cut down to 4 X 5-1/4 and then run through the Cuttlebug. The Merry Christmas is embossed and then punched out. The bows are tied separately with the purple tied through the knot of the copper ribbon. The the button is tightly tied on with waxy flax - I then put red line tape on the back of the button and bow for a strong bond with the card. The Center is popped up with 3D Foam Squares and the snowflakes are held on with glue dots.
