Queen for the Day



Did you ever have a card you just could never be happy with? This is mine. I made it for the Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers, Mary-Alice/ladybug91743. Here is her pretty card that I cased. Maybe I should not have gone Christmas with mine.

I really do like my stamps and punches, though, and it is another Christmas card made.

Recipe:
Stamps-Sweet Stamps Botanicals/Holly Branch, Hot Off the Press/Christmas Words
Paper-PTI white cardstock, Stampin'Up! Cherry Cobbler and Bermuda Bay
Accessories-Martha Stewart jingle bell punch, Martha Stewart snowflake punch, Craf-T Products decorating chalks/Forest Green clear gemstone

Love those "Boughs of Holly" that you stamped on this beautiful card. How fun the Jingle Bell and Snowflake are. Cute card!

Bear Hugs,

I think your card is lovely! And to answer your question. "Did you ever have a card that you were not happy with? Yes, many times, LOL. Cardmaking may come easy for a lot of people but not for me...It seems to take me forever to make a card, but I keep trying...Hope you are having a good weekend. Jill

Yes Brenda, I have made quite a few cards that I just didn't quite like. One card I got so many people telling me they liked it and so many pins on Pinterest, and I just couldn't figure it out. For me something was just missing on that card. I think this is pretty! One more Christmas card done is always a good thing ;)

Hmmm, not sure why you don't like this, I think it's lovely! Gorgeous sentiment font too.

I made 2 cards today that I'm not happy with, so I completely understand! I didn't even take photos of mine because I didn't like either of them! LOL Maybe tomorrow:)
I like your card with those pretty holly branches and blue snowflake! We're just too hard on ourselves sometimes :)

I'm sorry you don't like this one, I think it's fabulous! :-D Must be you had something else in your head. Love the stamped holly sprigs and the sentiment placement. Great jingle bell. Is that a die cut? It's one of the best I've seen.

I like that whimsical ivy and that it's not colored completely. It really makes that red jingle bell stand out! And it's a great mailable card!

Maria said...

A very pretty CAS card, Benzi! Your card is very interesting to the eye with the ivy! The snowfake and red bell are very pretty, too! It's a lovely Christmas card! Take care, hugs!
