Mine's better than Target's #1 **wink**

Last night I was perusing the Christmas isles at Target in search of random goodness to send to my "Secret Amigo" while on the hunt, I came across some pretty cute cards that I knew I could improve upon. (tee hee hee). So, out came the camera phone, and this morning, here is the results of Target card #1...

I used this weeks SCS color combo challenge of More Mustard, Sage Shadow, and Cranberry Crisp. Those, along with a sliver of Basic Black around the Whisper White. I stamped the "N" first, then masked it and stamped the "S" and the "O" which I also masked. Then with the masks on, I added the little details (gifts, ornaments, holly) These stamps are from the "Little Pieces" stamp set and the "Holiday Tag Team" stamp set, again because it's the only Christmas one I have, lol. I drew the ornament string with a Stardust glitter pen, and then used mini glue dots to adhere the silver bows. I also ran some silver cord around the piece of Sage cardstock on the side. The card base was stamped with the Weathered BG stamp, and the Sage piece, with the Paisley Print BG. Last but not least, I used the color spritzer tool with a blender pen soaked in Cranberry Crisp ink to spritz the background, and a 2-way glue pen and some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to add some snow to some of the letters.

Happy Tuesday! Now I'm off to study for that icky Algebra final!

What a great idea...more uses for our cell phones. Love your versions...and home made are SOOO much better than store-bought. Nice job!
