Let's start with the "ashes":
* The red scallop was a scrap I was given at Angela's Happy Stamper to try out the new Versamark Dazzle. Leslie and I tried this together :)
The sentiment is a Savvy stamp I purchased at Angela's.
* The dp is a scrap of DCWV from this card.
* The red photo corner is one I punched months ago (SU punch), but ended up not using.
* The white ribbon was a small scrap too large to throw away, but too small to do anything else with (to the best of my knowledge).
In my desire to use more Christmas-y items before filing them away in my Christmas folder, this card emerged. I actually started it after the New Year Card Debacle. I had layered the dp on old olive, then on red linen, but my reds did not match. Also, I was trying to place the scallop circle on top, which covered the dp too much. So I left it. This morning it just kinda came together. I love it when that happens! Ya know I had to add the paper piercing ;)
Next I did a re-run (an almost re-run) of a thank you card I made last month for my grandmother. On Friday I had a customer at Greenberry's request some romantic cards he could buy for his girlfriend. I promised him I would come up with something and have it in the store right after Christmas. (I need to get some reserves ready for when I pull any leftover holiday cards.) I had exactly enough dp to make these 4 cards.
