Okay I confess… I tried to do a postcard.  I really wanted to play along in Darlene’s challenge.  But the no layers and no embellishments rule got the best of me.  I just couldn’t do it!  lol  But at least I did end up with another Christmas card.


Edited:  There have been a few that have asked me how I did the glittered corner/border.  I should have included that in the original post… It was late and I forgot to mention that that is all part of the Imaginations designer paper.  Using a black Copic multiliner and a glitter pen I did add the straight line across the top and along the right side to make a box around the deer and sentiment.

Have a happy day, and don’t forget to check out all the goings on with Sharon’s celebration.

  2. Gorgeous card!!

  3. Oh how pretty!!! Isn’t it amusing how we sit down to create something and the project takes on a mind of it’s own? LOL This card is just beautiful!! To be honest, I don’t know that I’d be able to create a single layer postcard either! lol

  4. Oh my gosh, this is spectacular. I have been sitting here trying to figure out how you created that awesome punched and glitter edge!

  11. Gorgeous Susan! I am just blown over with this one! Love love it. I just read that you are leaving FLLC. I am so sad to see you go, I know you had too. I loved your work for them. Gonna miss seeing your sampls. Hugs…

  12. Susan, another stunner of a card, it is gorgeous but not surprised as your cards always are beautiful. I always know where to come for some boost in my stamping. I have no mojo these past few weeks. I am over extended and have to just slow down. Your work is the best. Pat


  14. What a beautiful card!!!

  15. This is absolutely STUNNING, Susan! I’m glad you edited your post to let us know the secret to this amazing card — I’d likely have stared it at for an hour trying to figure it out! lol I think I’d have a hard time with the one layer and no embellies rule too, so I’m totally sympathetic here…and love what you turned out!

  16. Oh Susan … you are too funny!! You must practice restraint my dear!! Those layers & ribbon will wait, LOL!! Sorry you couldn’t do the postcard thing but that’s okay because this card is STUNNING!!! Thanks!!

  17. Susan, I have been gone for awhile w/not much access to a computer and I have missed your beautiful cards. I love this one. It is so cool w/the the cut outs and glitter!


  18. This is a beauty of a card! Just so unique! Don’t feel bad about the postcard…..it was a challenge for sure to stay to one layer!

  19. This is a fabulous design Susan, and you’re so cute! I have a fabulous design for a post card (in my head . . . LOL), just no time to get it on paper, I will definitely play when I return home.

  20. Oh WOW!! This is just so beautiful!

  21. Wow! Susan, that card is gorgeous. I love that corner “etching” too. Good thing you posted about that being a part of the paper or I would be asking how you did that. It’s just too freakin cool!

  22. This is breathtaking!! So lovely! This one is a keeper!

  23. This card is absolutely gorgeous Susan! I also can’t imagine my card without layering and embellishments! I wanted to be a part og this challenge but not brave enough yet…
    I really love the layout on your card and all the sparkles!
