Hello there blog peeps! I really am still here, it's just been a little bit of a challenge for me to squeeze in some blog posts with the new work schedule and all. So, just wanted to let you know that it may take me a couple of weeks before I can get into a regular groove and carve out time to create my posts and all that good stuff. Hope you can bear with me! In the meantime, are you wondering what the stamped pieces are for in the picture above? These, dear friends, are for the card front trades I created for this weekend's Demonstrator meeting at the Spaghetti Factory. It's a slight take on my Melon Mambo Christmas card I made, only this time, it's in ornament form. And here are a few more I hung up on a mini Christmas tree. {Sorry about the lighting - I photographed these at night in a spot that didn't have the best lighting in the house}.
What do you think? This ornament card is a great one to mass produce, because all the components are pretty easy and straightforward to put together. For the snow, I first cut the circles using the Clear Circle Bigz die, then I ran it through the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder. Next, I drew the template for the curvy snow shape and then just cut and traced it onto the circles I embossed (2 snowy slopes fit on a circle). Here's the full recipe.
