What does it need?


I just got in some embossing folders from Cut@Home and had to try them out.
This silver card stock was free. We have what is called the Teacher's Supply Depot that anyone from the public schools here in Jax can go to and get items for free. The items are donated by businesses that are upgrading their offices or getting rid of old stock or what have you and I picked up 10 sheets of this silver card stock. I should have gotten 100. Each sheet is 31x19. We can go in once a month. The next time is Jan 7th. I can't wait to go again and see if I can get more of this.

Anyway, what do you think of the cards? I tried a little white bow but didn't like it. Should I put a sentiment on it or some more sparkles up in one of the corners? What about ribbon? I think these cards are really pretty. I know that is strange coming from me. I rarely ever like anything I make.

Thanks for tuning in.

  1. Ohh Leslie...these are just fantastic!!! I agree you should have taken every scrap of that silver paper.
    I am in the less is more camp...and I think these are SO stunning that they can stand alone without anything else. I was thinking about maybe NOEL but how would you get it on there??? adding a CS sentiment would ruin your effect. Personally I would leave them alone as they are just amazing!
    There is always the inside for the Merry Christmas!

  3. WOW!!!!!!!!! These are insanely wonderful!!! Get more paper, darlin, get more!!!
    If you don't want to leave them alone...maybe a little distressing ink or Copic on the tree stand and the tree top. Or edge distress the colored mat as a contrast to the crisp cleanness of the silver.
    Leslie, I really love these. Just perfect!
