Cool Stuff from Gay in the UK!

My online friend Gay sent me a package last week...a package that included her absolutely drop-dead gorgeous card for one of the OLW challenges.

Gay's Fabulous Christmas Card

That masking and sponging is divine!!!! Plus, the pine branch is perfectly placed for superb interest and sheer gorgeousness.

She included a pile of die cuts for me to play with, and these are the first cards I made with them.

The intricate frames are soooo pretty, and I knew I wanted to go with something elegant on them. Alas, I don't have a whole lot of elegant stamps, but then I remembered Everyday Blessings from Papertrey, and these came together lickety-split. The card stock is from GinaK...thanks again, Jimmi!

I'm going to have so much fun using the rest of the die cuts...thanks so much, Gay.

stamps: Papertrey
ink: Brilliance lavender and purple, Memento black
paper: GinaK
accessories: die cuts, gemstones, glue pen

  5. Your friend Gay's Christmas card is stunning! I've copied it into my favourites document for future inspiration.

    I love the way you've used the dies she sent you. You've kept the cards, images, and sentiments simple enough to allow the intricacy and beauty of the dies to be the stars of the cards.
