Two for the Price of One!!!

WOW, tonight you get to view two cards!!! Well, the "Western" one you saw already, I just changed it a little so I liked it better. I was not aware that you REALLY need to use the stick strip tape to tape down the glossy card stock. It warped when the rubbing alcohol dried and the paper curled. I taped it with snail tape and it didn't want to hold, it kept curling up. Silly thing!! SO I had to get out the heavy duty tape! I don't think this thing is going to be going anywhere now!!! LOL

Now this card I made before I changed the "Western" one. I just wasn't happy with it so I set it aside and took out a totally different stamp set and started the SplitCoast Sketch Challenge all over again. Now I was REALLY glad it was a fairly simple sketch to do. Not a lot of layering!! The coloring on this one went pretty fast too.

I stamped the tree with black Staz-on and colored it in with a blender pen and ink pads. Then I sponged the edges of the white pieces. The decorative paper is from Joann's Etc. I cut it and then put it in the snowflake Cuddlebug folder. I am REALLY lovin' that folder!!! I used white embossing powder on the snowflakes. I added some matching ribbon and the sentiments and assembled the card. Much to my surprise it went rather quickly. SO now I've done two card sketches in one day!!! Imagine that??? I can even amaze myself!!! LOL It's a simple enough card to do a lot of them for Christmas cards. I'll have to really think about that one since I already picked out a card I'm going to mass produce 130 of!!!

Thank you for stopping by!
