The best antiques are old friends!

Share |

(((Happy sigh)))

I actually took some time today to do some stamping that was NOT for a class, NOT for an online project, NOT for a team meeting, swap, tutorial or anything else work related - strictly something made out of love to give to my bestest friend.

So Christyne, off you go now.... no peeking!

I didn't buy Timeless Treasures myself but instead received it with a bunch of other new ones from Stampin' Up as part of my 2010 awards -- yay, who doesn't like free stamps??!!!

Since this set was out of my usual style, I was a little hesitant about using it. Then I was inspired by a card I saw by Heidi Saks on SplitCoastStampers recently and the cup idea stayed in my mind.

I think the use of our new 1/2 Inch Crochet Trim Chantilly paired with the "Deck the Halls" Holiday mini DSP and vintage-looking Antique brads turned out really nice.

I also added some extra texture by using the Square Lattice embossing folder on the Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

Let me know what you think, and then I'll post how she liked it when I give it to her on Thursday! Just because she's my "older sister" (hehehe), I'm hoping she doesn't take the sentiment the wrong way :)


Awwwh, I think she'll love it! :) It's a gorgeous card.
