Merry Christmas Sweet Readers,
I hope your Christmas will be filled with sunshine, warmth, and love. May your new year bring you health, prosperity, and joy! Thank you for being such wonderful visitors. My life has been made richer because of the love that you share! XOXO
Today, I would like to share with you the card I made for our son. Yes, he is a grown man (and we are so proud of the man he has become), yet, he loves my handmade cards. I can never have too many Edwin stamps! LOL.
On this card, I used three different Edwin stamps. The first one is Edwin with Winding Fern. It is available at MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS. The next Edwin stamp that I used is Lightening Edwin. I used the standard sized image, and Diana is currently out of them. However, she does have the mini version. You can find it here. The third stamp used on this card is named Edwin on Christmas Eve. Diana does have the mini version of this stamp, but if you contact her, she may be able to get a standard sized one for you.
Now for some specifics about the card. Each of the Edwin images has been elevated. The third one jiggles. It is so cute when you flick him. He looks like he's traveling! I think our son will get a kick out of that (so reminiscent of childhood cards). I did add Kindyglitz as accents on all three images to give some sparkle. There is also puffy paint added to the tree and trim of Edwin's jacket. I made a tree and added German glass glitter to it. It looked BEAUTIFUL! Then, I realized that the sharpness of the glass glitter would rub and ruin the second Edwin when they came in contact with one another when the card is closed. I decided to make a new tree and add puffy paint with a touch of sparkle to it. There is a hidden tag on the third panel. The paper is from my stash. I never really liked it, but thought it would look good for a male as long as Edwin matched in color. Think it's OK? Too late now, huh? LOL! I used various dies. If you have a question, please let me know.
I made some note cards for a friend of our son. I hope you don't mind if I share the images with you. I wanted to make each one different. I don't know this sweet gal, so I didn't know how "girly" to make them, LOL. I decided simple is best. If she likes more embellished ones, I can do that next time. Here they are:
Thank you so very, very much for stopping by. Christmas blessings to each and every one of you.
Love to you,
