Puttering around with cards yesterday. First I trimmed down the embossed aluminum foil and the snowflake embossed cardstock. Not all that impressed with using the heavy duty aluminum foil--especially with more intricate designs--because little holes break thru the foil. The more sparse designs seemed to fare better.
Then I took our template for the front piece on the Christmas cards and punched the holes.
Even tho I could punch right on the large mat, I guess I still use smaller mats to try to save the surface of my big mat. I didn't like getting the carved holes all over it.
Then I used our template for punching the holes on the inside greeting strip of cardstock.
Karma dozed as I worked.
Dagan and Leah were here after work. I worked on putting the large burgundy snowflakes together on the fronts with a white snowflake brad. Had miscounted with the white fronts and was two short.
Leah worked on stamping and embossing the greeting (with embossing powder and a heat gun). She got them all done. :)
I got filled in on the funeral as we worked. Dagan and Leah left around 8pm and I continued on with the cards. I made the two more white snowflake embossed fronts--ran them thru the "bug". Then put the burgundy and white snowflakes together and attached them to the inside greeting with a round white brad. Now they're all ready to tape together--tada! When I get around to it--hehe!
Got several comments on my refrigerator magnets. Thought I'd give you a closer look. A lot of these were gifts, some I bought, and some I made.
Same with the ones on the "angel" side of the frig. :)
My current favorite of the "angel" magnets.
My current favorite on the front of the frig.
Tonight Leah is picking me up after work to go shopping at Target. (I still have a Target gift card from my brother and his wife from my birthday.) Want to look and see what they have for hanging pots and plants. :)
Since I'll be out and about, I won't work on cards today. Want to be in good shape for walking around at the store. ;)
Still raining. Might stay like this till Sunday. Makes for good sleeping weather--cool and dark. Have a wonderful day!! :):)
