You're a gem!
Hey bloggie buddies! Here is a quick card I whipped up this afternoon. I used some of my new goodies I got for Christmas! I cut the diamond from the Once Upon a Princess cartridge. And then I ran it through my Xyron upside down. I sprinkled some Martha Stewart Crystal tinsel glitter on it. I have never used this kind before. It came out looking more "fuzzy" than I was expecting. But I think it looks cool. I used the Recollections kraft cardstock for my base. The background is Stampin' UP's Bravo Burgundy. I ran it through the cuttlebug with a folder from the Plum Blossom set. That folder is really cool! It did not turn out how I was expecting. I couldn't figure out which side was supposed to be the front. Both sides look really cool! The sentiment is from Pink By Design's Rock On set and stamped with SU's Bravo Burgundy ink. And the twine was a RAK from CardMonkey! Sometime before Christmas she had a post on her blog where she was offering 5 yards of bakers twine to anyone who wanted some. Since I had never used twine, I requested some. Thanks CardMonkey for your generosity! Thanks for stopping by!
