My cards went in the mail yesterday and I’m sure some of them won’t make it before Christmas, but it’s the thought that counts, isn’t it? I apologize in advance for the poor lighting. It was late and I was tired, and these had to go postal the next morning.
I tried to channel Laura Bassen and I’m not sure I succeeded. I think these turned out well, though.
I embossed them onto foiled cardstock (using a LOT of anti-static powder) and cut them out. The sentiment is embossed in white. The messy thread nest was a PITA to do, so I only made 2 of those. I have since found a better thread to use, courtesy of Laura Bassen. I’ve watched her videos and the thread comes off the spool in neat little circles, unlike this stuff, which seems determined to drive me mad. I emailed her to ask which thread she used, and she kindly replied with the brand and description - Coats S990 metallic thread. Off to Joann’s I went yesterday and came home with 2 spools - gold and silver. Ha! Take that, annoying DMC thread!
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
