Hey, hey! How are you? I hope you've been enjoying your weekend so far. We had a beautiful and a pretty warm (for this time of year) day yesterday so me and my sweetie decided to go on a one-day trip to one of the bigger cities here. It was wonderful!!! I had an amazing time, but I was pretty tired after the whole day of walking around. But it was definitely worth it! :) If tomorrow is not raining we might go to another trip to the other side of the country. Sounds fun, doesn't it?
Today I'm staying in and I finally finished a card I started working on a couple of days ago; I'm a very slow crafter. lol I was inspired by this mood board that was posted on the Stempelglede blog. I chose some colours from the board and used them on my card (white, grey-ish, white, brown-ish and even a touch of pink).
Also, I don't know why, but most of the pictures on the board reminds me of winter and my first association when I think of winter is Christmas. So I went and made a Christmas card - first one this year.
I used the gorgeous angel stamp from Stempelglede. I think it's great for making vintage Christmas cards. I usually make square cards, but I wanted to do something a bit different this time so I made a rectangle card. All of the papers came from my stash. The music notes paper is actually from back in the days when I was still going to music school - and let me tell you, this was maaaaaaaany years ago. Darn, I'm getting old. lol Lace, doily, pins, snowflakes, bling, feathers and bead trims came from my stash. I sprinkeled the edges of the image with frantage.
I'm not sure if you can tell, but this card is really sparkly in real life. Snowflakes are covered with glitters and then there are all the sequins and gems as well.
Those hearts I used at the center of the snowflakes have been in my stash for ages. But I knew they would come handy one day. :)
