{ hot chocolat }

A quick tag for an office gift wiggled between family gift projects. Looking at my list of "things still to do" and the calendar.. hoping I get it all done!
The tag was cut with my Sizzix Super Scallop punch out of paper from last year's scraps. I embossed the steam with white embossing powder and used my new Gelly Roll Clear Glaze pen to add depth to the cocoa. The ribbon was a gift from Ellen that came with my pens and wonderful Lockhart stamps! (watch for these images to appear soon on my cards). Eegads! I just looked at the clock and I'm going to be late for work!!

{ a birthday card for my sister }

I wanted to try something new and different for my sister's birthday card. This was the perfect opportunity to try working with transparency sheets as the base for a card. I had some old fairly heavy sheets left over from my working days. I will definately by a box to keep on hand for more cards as this process was much simpler than I had expected.

The Holiday Thyme paper was glued to the inside of the card and the stamped image was glued to the outside of the card so the glue did not show through. The white snowflakes were stamped on the directly on the transparency on the outside front of the card. Happy Birthday was stamped on the inside directly on the transparency paper in black. I used a scoring blade to score the transparency paper for a smooth fold. The only drawback is the white craft ink takes forever to dry.
