I hope all who celebrates had a Merry Christmas and made a memory or two to tuck under your belt. My favorite memory was when my Mother-in-Law opened the earrings we bought on behalf of our 90 year-old Grandma, who can't go shopping too easily. Our mother-in-law thanked Grandma, and my 5 year-old son stood up to righteously clear the record. "No," he said, "that was from my mom ... you know, 'Kelly!'" So much for our secret mission. Luckily Grandma joined us in laughter!
The white on white Blog Hop sponsored by Papertrey Ink is so appropriate for today. After all the colors, excess, business, and mess of the holidays, a clean white project sounds like heaven.
And here it is.
What? You're not that wild about it?
Once you set it in the window, it comes to life and you see the layers. To me it has a bokeh-like effect, like Christmas tree lights in the background of a photo, only all in white. I put the embossed, white sentiment in the middle of one of the circles and lined up the words on different shades of light (except for "day" which straddles the darkest part).
It came together pretty quickly. I cut an 8.5 x 11 piece of vellum in quarters, randomly stacked them under the circle die and ran them all through the Big Shot. Did that one more time, with
random stacking, and then did a few individual cuts after holding the sheets up to the light. Then cut out the inside of the card, taped them in, added the sentiment, and adhered the whole thing shut.
I'm adding this to the 10 minute challenge at CAS-ual Fridays. I don't know exactly how much time it took because I stopped in the middle to take this photo, but I'm pretty sure it was under 10 after I restarted the time.
Thanks for looking!
