Hello my friends! I hope you enjoyed a wonderful weekend, and if you are in the NE USA, my prayers are with you as this monster storm approaches!
With this sudden and extreme cold front/ hurricane force winds on the east coast, forecast of snow even here... I have to admit that it has put me in a bit of a holiday spirit! Add to that the Nov 1 release from Our Daily Bread designs, and I think you can see why! Today I'm giving you a sneak peek at one of the soon to be released sets... Turtle Dove Ornament, as well as a sentiment from another set, Cardinal Ornament.
I am on a mission to create clean and quick cards for Christmas so that I actually have a hope of getting them done! With that in mind... if you like CAS, I have several coming your way that might fit the bill! For this card I simply used white card stock and some embossing powder from Sweet Stamps. The embossing powder is a bit older and does not have a color name on it, but it is what I would call "platinum". It's a cross between gold and silver... sort of a flatter gold or "tan" gold, which I love with this flatter Prism Metallic Gold paper that I used to mat. I also used a Holly Embossing Folder from Cuttlebug. The ribbon is May Arts silk and the pearls are from AC Moore. I used an inside oval from Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two for the sentiment. I cut the ornament with a Spellbinders Classic Circle Large, which fits it perfectly! WooHoo!!! Sooo easy, so quick, yet elegant and festive I think.
