Melissa Shulz has such a great eye for detail and always makes such wonderful, whimsical cards! Today she has a festive card using "School, Sports, Spirit!", so cute how she hung up the skates with some cord and a brad! Makes a wonderful holiday card and I love that she used these fresh, trendy colors! The non traditional lime really pops on this wintery aqua card, and the glitter, snowflakes, brads and dry embossing make it extra"cool!" Her layout and little clip treatment for the sentiment are so unique. Great card, Melissa! Definitely makes me wanna get my skate on! ;) (Around Christmas is about the only time I ever do, but I've always loved watching figure skating, one of the first movies I ever saw at a drive-in was "Ice Castles" when I was realllllly little, anyone remember that movie??! ) You can see another card using this set on Melissa's blog, I haven't seen it yet, so we'll both be surprised!! :)
The details, straight from Geri:
Stamps - A Year of Leaves
DP is from Memorybox Twilight
Martha Stewart punch
self adhesive nailheads- from Gina
ribbon- from Gina
Tim Holtz ink
Oval and square nestabilities
Pure Luxury Pumpkin Spice and Chocolate Kiss
I made a 3 inch square, punched out once on each side. I made a inside square using two sizes of squares. I stamped and sponged the leaf using Tim Holtz ink. Applied a sticker strip in copper around the edge.
Sounds easy, right?? Easy on the eyes, for sure! Sigh, ...sooo pretty!! Love those patterns, punched frameand muted cooring on the leaf! Okay, let's go see another lovely, leafy creation at her blog! :)
Thank you, ladies, for your time and talent!!!!
