Hello!! I finally have some good lighting now all I need is the photographer ;) I am in such need of a tutorial.
Well the title of this post is "The Extreme". The reason I chose it was because of the extreme simplicity of my card for today.
See what I mean :) I simply had to do it though. I've been wanting to put up some christmas decorations up and been hesitant. So to satisfy that desire I created this little card with that concept in mind and might I add I think it's convinced me of putting up some ornaments. I presently don't own a single christmas ornament. Since my husband and I've been married we've never spent a holiday at home and we've really never celebrated christmas. We've always been on a missionary trip or convention :) This year will be our first and we have no clue what to do with ourselves :)
Here's a close up of the detail. I stamped the little ornaments in bright colors then I took some extra fine wire (very easy to bend you can even cut with scissors and it won't damage them) and twisted a bit to create a garland sort of thing. I finished it off with stickles for a festive, lit up look :)
Hope you found some inspiration. As soon as I get a chance I'll post some more christmas cards :)
**I wanted to thank all of you who left such encouraging comments/emails on my "A Different Kind of Celebration" post. That meant so much to me. And the reason I chose to write about it was because I was in need of accountability I knew I would back out if I didn't have you girls. You all are truly the best. Thanks a million!! I'll keep you posted as to what happens. I feel like a little girl all excited and stuff**
