We as paper crafters and card makers go crazy over pretty paper, pretty pencils, and pretty ribbons. Probably most of you are wishing for a special paper crafting tool or treat to be under the Christmas Tree with your name on it this year!!!! This song fits the mood and tempo of all us out there crafting away for the Christmas Holiday. For something Festive for the Season we want to feature our favorite cards from MMSC#28 to honor our Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge Players who played along with us that week. Our Pretty Paper card choices will need to do the blog hop, leave a comment at each of the Design Team Blogs, and collect a word from each of the blogs visited for the winning phrase and place their name in Mr. Linky with “blog hop” after their name at Priscilla’s Midnight Madness Blog! We will enter your name in a drawing for one winner from our 12 entries. We will email you when we verify that you have entered your name in Mr. Linky and have left a comment on each of the Design Team Blogs, you will need to email back the phrase in order to qualify for your prize. Even if your card has been chosen for the “Pretty Paper” you are still eligible for the other prizes.
My Winter Wonderland card. This is a stamped image and then wet embossed in silver embossing powder and colored. It is also a gate card as you can see by the opening as it swings open. I also used silver embossing powder around the circles, around the image and both of the card sides.
In addition to the above card, I made for my special project, two smaller cards and one round ornament pictured in the center that was made out of a ribbon spool.The total "Winter Wonderland" project. One 6 x 6 gate fold card, two smaller cards and one Ornament.
Our Midnight Madness Monthly sponsor is The Frantic Stamper.
