Sorry...I couldn't help but title my post with that song...it's totally hilarious! I loved seeing Brad Paisley on Dancing with the Stars last night, and seeing him perform that one was just icing on the cake. Loved it! Anywho...
I'm sorry I didn't post yesterday, but I was home with a very sick little boy! He has nasty bronchitis and we're having to do breathing treatments (now down to about 2-3 per day), but he's feeling better now.
Anywho, here's another card I made for the Verve release, and I really think this one is my favorite. It's super simple, but I love it. Whaddya think?
I love the way the red pops against the Kraft, especially after I sponged the edges with Close to Cocoa and Chocolate chip ink. I stamped the ornament from Ornamental Christmas in Versamagic Spanish Olive ink, then stamped the sentiment in Brilliance Pearlized Chocolate. After coloring the stripes with a Copic marker, I punched the ornament out with my Marvy Super Jumbo (blue) Circle Punch. After everything was totally dry, I layered Crackle Accents on top of the ornament and let it dry. Once it was dry, I sponged Close to Cocoa across it so it would get down in the cracks and age the ornament a bit. Worked like a charm!
On my Kraft card base, I stamped the branch (also from Ornamental Christmas) in Versamark ink for just a little subtle texture. I sponged all the edges of all the layers with Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip ink, then distressed them with my Tonic Distressor tool. I used the Mat pack and a paper piercer to add a little piercing detail on the corner of the red panel.
To finish off the card and "hang" my ornament, I took this hang-a-mabob piece of Hodgepodge Hardware and threaded some twine through it. The twine was then adhered to the back of the Holly DP Panel, and then I added a bow to the hardware so it wasn't so stark.
Anywho, I hope you like this one, and I hope you have a fabulous Wednesday!
