This fortnight, Rachel of Fishers Cards and Crafts chose the theme of Festive Foliage for our Christmas Card Club. What a fun theme!
I had a stamped card started and needed to sit down and colour the image but our furnace broke and I spent all of Saturday morning on the phone trying to get a repairman to come out. We are in the midst of heavy snow, with the roads in very poor shape. I then spend the rest of the afternoon huddled under a blanket near the fireplace! Of course furnaces and major appliances only break down on weekends...when labour rates are in overtime setting. Two hours work to fix it and $440 dollars for the labour alone. Oh my!
After all that, I decided to make a much easier card. I broke into my Never Before Used Stash (NBUS), and chose this Hunky Dory, Adorable Scorable Christmas Church card kit.
I decoupaged the layers for the scene but decided not to use the card provided with the kit. It seemed the wrong size for the image and I did not like the sheen on the paper finish.
I used one of my scalloped square cards instead and used a First Edition, Christmas Wishes DP for the background. I always love the First Edition 6x6 stacks. I wish I owned every one!
