Today I wanted to post a card that goes a little "out of the box." Recently my daughter and son-in-law moved, and her dad, sister and I helped her unpack and get things organized. Her sister did a great job of putting down shelf liner in the pantry and had some left over. She was going to pitch it, but I saw potential in the scraps. You can see in the picture below that it is clear, ribbed plastic shelf liner, and it adds a striped textured element to the card.
This is a Christmas card. Last year I got a little loopy trying to make all my cards for an early mail-out. I started in August, and should have started sooner. I am thankful for those sites that encourage us to make our Christmas cards all year long so that we don't get more last-minute pressure to get them all done when we have so many other issues to deal with. So here is my Christmas card for today...
Starting with white cardstock, I laid down a black layer, then a black and white glittery paper, then the shelf liner. The sentiment is printed from my computer and framed with Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Ovals dies. Glitter is around the edges and also on the surface of the white sentiment. The white bow finishes the Christmas card:
Here is a closeup of the "ribbing" created by the shelf liner:
