Tuesday Trigger and The Final Swap Card


The Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger from last week (I'm just a little slow...LOL!!) has been extended another week so I got busy last night and made another Christmas card...I used the colors and snowflake shape as my inspiration.

The Stampendous Christmas sentiment was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and sponged with Wild Wasabi. The lace, seam binding and the Martha Stewart punched snowflake with the pearl center finish it off. Pretty simple but fairly flat for mailing.

I wasn't quite satisfied with the shoebox swap cards I made the other day so I made another one...I think this is the one!! I started make my 26 card packets that will include all the papers, cardstock, and embellishments to make 26 of these cards. The Christmas shoebox swaps are great because I will end up with 26 different cards to send for Christmas....whoohoo!!!
The Rubbernecker Pine Sprig image was stamped first with Old Olive. Then the punched ferns were adhered along with the die cut red bird. A pearl was added for the eye and the bow was attached with a glue dot. The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse's Oven Fresh Gingerbread Joy.
Recipe:
Stamps: Rubbernecker and Waltzingmouse
Paper: White, Real Red, Old Olive, The Paper Studio dp
Ink: Old Olive, Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Stampin Up! Bird Die, Martha Stewart Fern Punch, Ribbon, Pearl

Thanks for stopping by....have a great day!!!

2 really different styles of cards, and both beautifully done. I love how bright and cheerful one is, and how quiet and sophisticated the other is. The shoebox swap sounds a great idea too. Lovely to see your cards, Joan. CoB
