Our furnace went on strike on Sunday afternoon. Apparently we aren't the only ones because even though I called the repairman at 7:00 am he couldn't get back to me until after 3:00 pm to tell me that it'll be Wednesday before he can get here. What's a girl to do? Two things... turn on spacer heaters and make cards!
Card #1 - Mad for Plaid
The ornament was cut using my Cricut and then I applied silver paint to it. I love the effect because once it dries it really looks like metal.
The last touch is the polka dot "ribbons" which are just strips of scrap card stock. (I love using up scraps in this way!)
Card #2 - Abundant Joy
I took a piece of lattice patterned paper and stamped the Joys. I then adhered strips of kraft card stock to the left sand right. My final touch was adding the Dove.
It's hard to tell in the photo, but I coated the Dove in clear embossing powder to give it some shine.
Card #3 - Simply Christmas
You can recognize the lattice paper I used in the Dove card. You may also recognize the striped paper from yesterday's Joy card, this time running vertically.
Add two snowflakes and Bob's you uncle, you're done.
I love it when cards are quick, easy, and cute!
Ok, it's time to get under the down blankets with some hot cocoa.
To end this post on a happy note, I called a different heating repair shop and they will have someone out to fix my furnace at 8:00 am tomorrow. A happy ending... I hope :)
