Here is what I made for you today:
The holidays will truly be here before you know it! So many of us have good intentions to get a jump on everything and an early start to our holiday gifts, cards, and creations. Alas, life happens and things start getting crazy. My project is a Flower Soft Topper and a reminder that those holiday cards do not need to be so labor intensive and still have a beautiful bang that the receivers will just think you spent hours on. This card really took me no time at all. The longest period of time I spent was waiting for the glue to dry and I just put my topper aside over night and finished it the next day. This particular is called Cute Christmas-Festive Teddies. You get six toppers (two different designs) with a sheet of layers for each topper to build this gorgeous 3D card. I then added Polar White Flower Soft for some snow and I actually sprinkled some silver glitter in the snow that does not convey well in the photo but is stunning in person. I the added a Flower Soft sentiment from the Vintage Envelopes collection and then Peel Offs around the border of the card and snowflakes on the topper itself. You can also find additional Peel Offs HERE. Peel Offs are so wonderful! You get a jam packed sheet very inexpensively and they add not only a touch of elegance, but also a more finished look to your card. I also use these in scrapbooking to add borders and frame photos. The best part about Peels Offs is that they are very forgiving. If you put your border on a bit crooked, it picks right up as many times as you need to get it just right! This is worth the price of admission alone as I so hate sticking something down incorrectly and need a jack hammer to get it back up again! I hope you enjoyed my project and you are now inspired to start that holiday crafting!
