Christmas Wishes foil -

Hello & Happy Wednesday Everyone!
How's your week going so far? I hope it's been wonderful for you... 
I've been keeping busy myself and have been thinking about
re-organinzing my craft room (AGAIN) YIKES! 
It's one of those things we crafters tend to have to do
from time to time - I try to re-organize every quarter because
of the new goodies I purchase (I know you know what I'm talkin' about!)
But, I've been a slacker - and need to get it done soon... :)
How soon? Well... that depends on me... and how soon I want
to really get in there and fix it... maybe a week? maybe another 2 months!
Trust me.. it's starting to bug me.. so it may be very, very soon - 
But I do have some craft projects I want to finish first -

Anyway.... enough of my jibber jabbering! I thought I would
share a Christmas Card today, since I forgot to share it last week
as I try to make one new Christmas card every week - :)

I'm NOT sure how I feel about this particular Card - I had an idea
in my head when I started it - but not sure it was what I wanted -
And - the photo could be much better, but there was a LOT
of Glaring going on due to the foil that was used -

-- Recipe for this card --

Cardstock - Stampin' Up, Georgia Pacific, Bazzill Gold Foil, Open Cardstock Red Foil
Designer Paper - DCWV (Foiled Elegance Stack)
Christmas Wishes Die - TH Alterations (#660058)
Snowflake Stamps - Simon Says Stamp (Cute Snowflakes)
Moonlight White Brilliance Pigment Ink
Heating Tool
Stitched Card Mat Die - Die-namics (Blueprint #13)
Snowflake Punch - Martha Stewart
Ribbon - My Stash

As you can see by the picture, I added a strip to the inside of
my card along with a Foil Snowflake to round out the card -

Thanks for stopping by -
Have an AWESOME DAY!!!

I know what you mean Theresa about the craft room. I started to do mine several times over the past couple years and something always comes up and I never finish. I love the card. I think the foil beautiful. I also love that you used the stitched dies. Love it.
Have a creative day.

Every time I buy new stuff I need to organise my craft room....I always seem to find things that I had forgotten about. Your card is really the gold foil. Enjoy your week!

It's absolutely gorgeous my friend!! The foil looks so elegant and beautiful!! I love, love it!! My craft room is in a constant state of re-organization...which is a nicer way of saying it's always a complete mess ;) Good luck with yours!! Have a great day my friend!! Big hugs :)

My husband just went through our storage room and found two boxes full of crafting supplies from when we moved a couple of years ago! I'm thinking I don't need them if I haven't used them in so long - but it was like Christmas when I found so much I'd forgotten about! How bad is that?! I hope your re-organizing goes well. It's good to go through things every now and then (although it's not as fun as crafting)!

Your card is so pretty! It's got a wonderfully elegant look to it - perfect for Christmas!!

I think your card is gorgeous! I sure do know what you mean about rearranging your craft room. I'm at that point now too but I can't quite figure out what I want change. So every time I go in there, I just make a project instead!

WOW! This is gorgeous! The kraft color with the red looks fantastic!! Beautiful card my friend~Yes, I need to clean my craft room some to. Ever since the remodel I have been trying to be good about keeping it in order. Not doing to bad! I find it much easier to craft when it's clean and I now have done a better job of not buying something I already have 2 of, hehe!
Have a great evening!

Sukie said...

Your card is absolutely stunning! The foil is so pretty and it looks amazing! And my craft room is a constant mess or crafting chaos as I would call it!

Your card is absolutely gorgeous Theresa.
I know exactly what you mean about the craft room. I've been trying for ages to organize mine, but then I think of something new to create and it's a disaster all over again. But, I have to say, it's my little piece of heaven here on earth. When I'm crafting all the worries in the world fade away and I'm in my little happy place. LOL!
