Hello... we only have 3 days left before Christmas, I hope you've got all your holiday shopping done!? I finished mine a few days ago, but went antique shopping today in search for some printers blocks for my sister. I didn't need to buy anything else, but I found a great booth with over 100 different printer blocks. Not sure what a printer block is? Well, before computers and printers - you would line up your blocks to form the word(s) you wanted and added the ink and ran through and printed your posters, etc. Since the computer, they've become obsolete and my sister has been collecting them for a few years now. They are pretty hard to come by since most companies that used them have discarded them since they are not used any longer. I picked up a bunch that she doesn't have, I'm sure she'll be excited! I think they're pretty cool and I don't collect them!!
Anywhooooo... my card inspiration for today is one that I made months ago believe it or not?! Not sure why I took so long to share it, well here it is...
Of course this card features some punches, my favourite products!! I used the 'Petite Pennants Builder' punch. I punched out 9 pennants in two patterns (I used the Season of Style paper stack - double-sided for twice the patterns to choose from!) I used the 1" Square punch to make the tree trunk (I cut it in half). The sentiment is from the 'Sweet Essentials' set inked with the Gold Metallic Encore pad, and to add some more gold glitz... I added a strip of the Gold Foil sheet and a gold star for the top of the tree. This card is really not as complicated as it may seem, once you cut/punch all your pieces it really doesn't take any time at all to assemble a bunch!
