This last month of the year, we are focusing all our attention on metallics, whether it's foil, embossing powder, inks or cardstock, anything metallic and since it's December we just had to make it holiday too.

Now on with the projects.
Now... don't go getting excited. I didn't get far with this. My water spilled all over my table, getting my Scor Tape and this really cool (and kind of expensive... to me) foil wet. Lesson. Put your beverage, whatever it may be AWAY from your workspace or maybe drink wine while you work. I believe I may never have put that darned glass down, had it been wine...
But, all is well. My daughter needed a birthday card. The little girl (not so little... she's almost 12!) has her birthday 3 days away from Christmas! So... I started with these items. (Thank you, Anna Griffin kits!!!)
I love that these Anna Griffin things (from HSN) no... this isn't an advertisement!!!! have almost everything you need! This silver element made the perfect banner for the card.
There always something to play with, whether it's the positioning or not enough of something...
This one's not enough of something. READ: SOMETHING'S MISSING!!!!
And so... with the added Baker's Twine, I believe it's good! Super Duper simple! and easier than all getouts, since I still haven't plugged in my machines upon my return (omg... it was back in the beginning of LAST month!!! I have to get moving and get stuff unpacked!!!) from the Scrapbook Expo (where I got the original foil I was going to use...!

And that's that! Ok... so it's not quite Christmas, but... I forgot it was supposed to be I figured you all might be inundated with everything Christmas and thought I'd throw this in the mix!

Please be sure to come back and visit us next year, where we have a whole 'nother Year of Card Techniques for us you to learn! And with that being said... here is the final lineup of the year (for the Year of Card Techniques, of course! because we all know I can't shut up...):

  3. LOL! Yes, we all know you can't shut up, but we love you for it! :) I love how your card turned out and must say since you turned over water on your card that I accidentally smeared Stickles on my card on the sock. I touched it right after I finished adding the Stickles and forgot it wasn't dry! LOL! Oh, well, it gave it a different effect! ;) I can't wait to read your Holiday Blog Hop entry! I really enjoy hopping with you!

  4. Very cute and I love it when cards come together quickly.
