Hi there! How is your Tuesday going so far? When I saw this color combo for this week's challenge at The Play Date Cafe I knew I wanted the silver to be front and center...I just wasn't sure how to do it. I pulled out Basic Grey, Soft Suede and Brushed Silver card stock as my color combo. I just got the Northern Flurry embossing folder in my order last week and have really been wanting to break it in. I guess that was my starting point for this clean and simple (CAS) creation.
This embossing folder is so pretty on it's own, especially on the sparkly silver card stock. I added some jewels to the center of the snowflakes, then to the corners for a little extra sparkle. The sentiment is heat embossed in silver on Soft Suede card stock. I originally added Soft Suede ribbon then just felt like it wasn't quite right, so I layered a piece of Basic Grey ribbon over the top. It seemed to work better together. I am really happy with how it all came together. What do you think? I struggle with CAS cards because I always feel like I should do MORE with them....ugh!
*For the inside, I just kept on embossing using the ornament and sentiment from the Contempo Christmas set:
One last thing, I wanted to share a little "furry-love" with this photo from Mr. Emmitt Rowley, taken on Thanksgiving. He has a few toys that are his absolute favorites and this little bull is one of them. (note the hind legs by-the-way...CUTENESS, right??) We had a vet visit today for a check-up and vaccinations, because we have finally come to the conclusion that he is most-likely a permanent "house-guest". All went very well at the vet and afterward he went to Petco for some treats and a new toy. :)Stampin' Up! Supply List:
