Superbowl Sunday, Midterms, Grocery Shopping...How could I possibly find time to make a card this week? Well ladies and gents I did something that may blow your mind. I planned ahead! I know right; what a novel concept. I am so good at it when it comes to my school life. I make a study schedule and stick to it pretty well. Same thing with running, if I am doing a race I will plan it out and I find the race is easy by the time I get there. However, who schedules in relaxation time? I should! Its the only way I will do it. What I tried to do this week, was if I wanted to watch one of my "awful" tv shows I would plan or make a card at the same time. Worked out pretty well except for the whole sleeping thing but who really needs that anyway!
This week I used my own design. The pattern on the white paper is a stamp that I got from Red Rubber Designs. Same with the hedgehog and sentiment. I loved how it turned out! What a great way to create patterned paper when you don't have any. The corners are embellished with chocolate pearls. I thought they were the perfect said for a Christmas card since I love red and brown together. The scalloped edge of the oval I created by using my corner rounder. The guiding edges come off so that you can create a scalloped edge but it does take a lot of concentration and time.
