Thanks so much!


I like this card's LO. I've been looking at it and thinking it would make a great Christmas Card. It's only two layers, there's no coloring, it would use up and show off some of the Christmas paper I have too much of, and it has a fun embellie and some sparkle. That about covers it, I think!

Everything on this card except the Stickles, button, thread, and Glimmer Mist is from GinaK. I like spraying the white paper flowers from GKD with Glimmer Mist to make them any color I want. The base here is GKD Chocolate Kiss Base Weight cardstock. It is the heaviest cs I have ever used, and I love it! I hope she has layering weight in this color, too, because this will replace my beloved Chocolate Chip, which I have been using for nine years as my go to brown.

The pink patterned paper is from the very first GKD STamp TV kit, Floral Frenzy. I think it's digi paper, and you may still be able to buy it. I have no idea. I have so much stinkin' paper, I would no more print paper than I would go outside in my bra and panties. It's a trend I will probably never be a part of. I do like the papers, though, and I use them when they come in my STV kits-I'm just not going to waste printer ink printing them!

I think the grosgrain ribbon is from the FFSTV kit, too. You get tons of ribbon in these kits, and I love the selection. I am hoping my Holiday Cheer Stamp TV kit arrives today, I'm kicking myself for not ordering on the first, I ordered mine on the third, and I'm hating the wait! It usually doesn't take more than a week, though, I'm just impatient!!
