Do you have a big stash of patterned paper? I love to buy it and sometimes have tendency to hoard it for 'special occasions'. Bit like the fancy glasses or china! Here's a great card design for using up some coordinating patterns - handy for using scraps and offcuts too. Just cut and layer some circles - I've used the Stitched Shapes Framelits for the circles.
(Card inspired by an ellocindesigns card.)
I've used the Winter Wonderland embossing folder with Shimmery White cardstock and cut circles from the beautiful Year Of Cheer Patterned Paper. The snowflake is cut from the border panel with the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits Dies. I've used the champagne foil sheets for the snowflake and matting piece.
The nice thing about using Stampin' Up DSP (patterned paper) packs is that it all coordinates so well.
Here's another version - this time using the lovely musical patterns. Find this paper pack here: Merry Music Specialty Paper
or on page 13 of your Holiday Catalogue.
I think I'll make a thank you card for Jack's piano and guitar teachers with this paper. Perfect for the music teacher or music lover in your life.
Now I'm off to clean up my computer. I unloaded my recent holiday photos and I think it is bursting at the seams. Starting to do some WEIRD things. Time to delete some old junk off it I think before it completely goes on strike. I think all our brains feel a little like that don't they at this time of year. Spending some time relaxing with crafts can be a good way to de frazzle at this time of year. I hope you get some papercraft time this weekend.
