Life is returning to normal and that's good. I guess. Always sad, though, when you have to de-Christmas the house. Luckily, my husband is in charge of that job this year!
I had an idea for a card and, as usual, looked forward all week to sitting down this morning to create.
I used more of my new holiday goodies on this card.
I used my new die and stamps from Paper Smooches. Love, love, love this Squared die. I have a feeling I will be using it over and over again! Anyway, first I cut a piece of gray cardstock with the die. I trimmed the cardstock here and there to allow room for the sentiment (Pretty Phrases) and to give the eye a bit of a rest from all that sparkle.
Then, I cut it out several times from some American Crafts glitter paper and inlaid the squares and crosses. It wasn't difficult at all and I love the results. Best of all, I've got a sparkly little pile of leftover pieces that I can use on some other cards!
I'm entering this in the Paper Smooches SPARKS Anything Goes challenge. The entries there never fail to inspire me!
I am also linking this to a new challenge (for me), Darnell's NBUS Challenge #3 .
Have a great day!
