Preparing

Hi friends!  Happy Thursday!  Today I have a quick little clean & simple card to share with you.  I made this last weekend and this is my first free moment since then to sit down and type up a post. Things are moving at warp speed in our neck of the woods... if you see a blur streaking across my post, it's probably Kellan or Trevor. LOL! They have ENDLESS energy and are into EVERYTHING!


Anyhow, on with the card...  I cut a piece of crumb cake cardstock with the Heart Quartet Die, then layered a piece of red vellum behind it.  The Every Heart plain jane is stamped in Early Espresso onto the crumb cake panel and then I wrapped some silver & white baking twine around it and popped up on dimensionals.  Three sparkly jingle bells and some Stardust Stickles edging each of the hearts adds shimmer and I add a couple little leaves I found in my Christmas drawer.  The plain white base is scored a couple times at the top and bottom for accent, and I was done.  Easy peasy!

Enabler's List
Stamps: Every Heart (Verve Stamps)
Paper: crumb cake (SU!), red vellum, white
Ink: early espresso (SU!)
Accessories: Heart Quartet Die (A Cut Above by VERVE), baker's twine, jingle bells, stardust stickles, leaves, Scor-Pal
