Flubbed attempt


I was playing with one of my new SU Fresh Cut Notes and thinking how easy
it was to whip up a little card in no time flat. Of course, I tried to
stamp it and botched it up first try, so I did a quick cover up with the
Happy New Year. Just remember that this is my prototype. I don't always make a perfect card the first time. I punched out the die-cuts and added a poinsettia
with crystal center and stickles on the flower for sparkle. I added
a piece of red CS behind the flower as well as scallop punched the edge of
my card. It isn't the best prototype but it shows how versatile this little
card can be. But wouldn't it look nice with a cuttlebug design to take off
the simplicity of the card as well?
We are busy as beavers here, as DH is busy in the workshop cranking out picture
frames to used in restaurants on their tables for their special pies etc. and
promos they have. Meanwhile, I am the lucky person to stain and varnish each
piece. And we also have our new shed in construction stage outside, so we are
keeping busy these days.
