Just a different color...

Since I was so late in getting my Christmas cards made and sent out, I didn't have a chance to post these and I didn't want them to be seen on my blog before they were delivered. I guess I am having a hard time catching up. I made the same card but in three different colors. I think the purple is my favorite. What do you think?

I embossed cream shimmer card stock with the Cuttlebug Victoria folder and then cut out 100 labels using Spellbinders Label 16. There were 50 of each size- run each of those through a die cut machine twice (once to cut and again to emboss) no wonder the fingers are tingling from carpal tunnel. Boy the Vagabond would have come in handy. I had borrowed the wreath stamp so I apologize for not remembering who makes it- maybe penny black? I embossed the stamped image in queens gold and then used stickles in the coordinating color. I just happened to have satin ribbon that matched the card stock perfectly. It was truly amazing how closely the purple matched.

I hope you all had a wonderful New Year and are on the right track for keeping your resolutions. I never set myself up for one certain goal. I just try my best at every thing I do and when I slip up I don't beat myself up. Tomorrow is always a new day to try it again and hopefully I learned something from yesterday.

~Have fun and enjoy!
