The other day, after watching my Holiday Catalog Video, someone said: “You made prioritizing my list even more difficult, Jessica!!”
You’re welcome. Just kidding! I know, there are so many great crafting supplies that it’s hard to choose!
Here are a few questions I ask myself before I buy new supplies:
- What exactly will I use this to make first?
- How many different ways can I use this?
- Do I already have something similar?
These questions help me narrow down my MUST HAVES!!
Garden Green card base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″
Garden Green: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Striped Paper: 2″ x 4″
Very Vanilla: 1/2″ x 2-3/4″
So it might not look exactly like a poinsettia, but when you layer the two different sizes of daisies together and add a gold or yellow center, it certainly looks like a Christmas flower.
Stampin’ Dimensionals behind the flower really makes it POP!
If you want to make the card a little more mailable, you could replace the gold gem with something flatter like a circle of card stock.
For the background, I stamped the leaves and berries in Garden Green and then sponged a little Garden Green ink over top.
I hope my questions above help you decide which new crafting supplies are must-haves for you.
