Christmas in August???

Does this make 3 postings in one week?!? Just don't get used to it, it just so happens I've been doing a lot of projects lately due to classes and events.

Tonight I'm going to switch things up a bit by showing you my swap card from last night's RubberQueen meeting, using my Delightful Decorations stamp set I also got yesterday (yah, I had to put these together really quick). I used the Packing Tape Technique in the Glorious Green stamped ornament (i.e., after punching the image out with the new Ornament Punch, I applied packing tape to back, and Dazzling Diamonds glitter; I then reattached the punched image on the back layer). I also used the beautiful new Sleigh Bells cotton ribbon -- which I love, love, love!! Cardstock: Glorious Green, Real Red, Crushed Curry, & Whisper White. I loved making this card and bought this set specifically so I could use it with this technique. Sorry the sparkles don't show up real well, but if you right-click on the image, you can open a larger picture in a new window to see the sparkle and the texture of the ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
