Deco Labels

 I really need some education in working with colors in Photo Shop. The two colors I used for this card are Stampin' Up's Coastal Cabana and Strawberry Slush, but the pink looks more coral in these images. My son is great with manipulating the color levels to get the true colors. Little does he know I will be bartering Christmas cookies for Photo Shop lessons when he is home for the holidays.

I used Stampin' Up's From My Heart stamp set in Coastal Cabana ink for the sentiment and then cut it out using their Framelits Deco Labels. For the pink layer I embossed each end with the Framed Tulips embossing folder. The white layer was done with the Perfect Polka Dots folder and the background was done with the Stripes embossing folder. Several different textures on this card work well with plain card stock. I think it would have been too busy had I used any designer paper. The edges of the card I used the Scallop Trim Border punch and then a line of pearls. Very easy and quick.

It sure is going to be a busy December here at our house. As I said in my previous post, my father will be coming to stay the month with us. Our youngest is graduating from college and my in laws decided they wanted to come down for the graduation also. I am really looking forward to having them all here especially my dad. He hasn't been to our house in quite awhile. We always see him when we go to the cottage in the summer. I have the spare room all tidy and waiting for him.
It is bitter cold out today and there have been a few snow flurries here and there. What a perfect day to make a pot of homemade turkey soup with homemade noodles. The house smells absolutely  rummy and I have been hungry all day from the aroma.
I have a few thank you cards to make from my birthday last week. I had better get started or they will end up doubling as Christmas thank you cards and that just wouldn't be right.
~Have fun and enjoy!
