|patterned paper: my mind's eye, fancy pants; glitter paper: american crafts pow; pearl brad, star washi and gold washi: eyelet outlet; poinsettia flowers: michaels; snowflake punch: fiskars; snowflake chipboard: my minds eye; glossy white kromekote cardstock: the paper cut;|
i thought about going all out "4th of july meets xmas"... (and i still might do that, next week!) ...but what changed my mind was the fact that i have this amazingly lovely new eyelet outlet star washi tape that i've been dying to use on a card! since the watercolor-ish stars on the tape are in gorgeous shades of blue and purple, that helped me narrow down my paper choices. in the end, i went with two that are not especially christmassy, but i love how they look together and this is the PERFECT card for my friend kate, who doesn't celebrate any particular holiday in december, except maybe the solstice. a stack of flowers and snowflakes, a beautiful oversized pearl brad, some skinny gold stripe washi and i called it a day!
