It was not a serene day at all. I have an idiot family and I have no idea what to do about it. Then hubby's employer is making all the dependants of their employees prove they are entitled to benefits. I guess a marriage license and a couple of ulcers isn't enough proof! So I dug up every damn paper I could but we have so little jointly together other than our tax papers. But I filled the envelope full of documents and enclosed one very perturbed letter accusing them of invasion of privacy for demanding my tax papers.
To top it off, after I go to the gym to chill and maybe watch the game-a horrific accident shut down the freeway with no way out-barrier walls kept us on idle for almost 2 hours. I had to pee so bad and could not call anyone to let them know where I was-my phone fell under the seat and I could not reach it. I had Delilah to keep me company for the duration but no toilet. I fell over the dogs getting into the house trying not to wet my pants.
This is another Stacey idea and it's been getting raves. I used a folded card made from what looks to be mica card stock. I have some in every color but no idea who makes it. It's pretty rigid for card stock. So that black piece I stamped on was from the same company. I stamped the image using Versa Mark and covered with clear detail powder, then heat set it. Taking a sponge, I used Ice Blue Brilliance and rubbed the ink over the image to make it pop. You don't need a lot of ink, just smoosh it around. Then I took a Fantastix and White ink and rubbed at the bottom to simulate moon-lit misty snow. I wish you could see this up close as it looks so much better-too much light was bouncing off the colors. Deckle the edges.
This stamped and inked piece was then layered on mirror card stock-and only the bottom was deckled. I hope you cut better than me too. Layer this on the top of the folded card. Using a Trio tape runner, apply a piece of ribbon under the stamped piece after tying a knot in the middle.
Stamp the word serenity on the left using White detail ink and then punch a snowflake for the right using a scrap of the metal card stock. Or you could use a brad here instead. Use what you find in the scrap bin.
