(pattened paper: doodlebug, making memories, love elsie + vintage sheet music; cardstock: core'dinations; christmas tree dingbat font, used as a template scrap-n-fonts; diecut presents: dcwv; "merry" transparency: ki; word sticker: making memories; velvet trim: doodlebug; ink: colorbox; adhesives: tombow mono runner, 3m foam tape; other: mylar stars, sewing machine)
the thing is, i'm not really sure what's wrong with it. i love the cute little trees. i LOVE my nestibilities "labels 8". (lucy, you were SO RIGHT!) i love the machine stitching, and the papers, and that fun velvet trim. but somehow, the totality of the card is LESS than the sum of its parts.
does it say something horrible and passive-aggressive about me if i confess that i will probably send it anyway?? well, yes, very possibly...but hey...it's 16 days before xmas, and i've suddenly discovered i don't have NEARLY enough cards made. this is NO TIME to be overly fussy, people!!!
