This card made Stampers Showcase!

A friend told me yesterday that one of my cards made Stampers Showcase on the SU website. I had been busy with my grandchildren--shopping, crafting, and going to the Christmas parade--and I had not had time to check the Showcase for a couple of days. Actually I don't check it more than once a week or so. So imagine my surprise when I heard that this sample of mine made the Showcase yesterday!

I do love this Dasher stamp and also the snowflake stamp. I also love the wide striped grosgrain ribbon but it makes a BIG knot to try to mail. Believe me, my post office knows when I'm coming in that I need extra postage on my cards to pay for "bulk". Ha! So I need to find ways to have them not be too thick, especially with all my layers. I decided to tie the SU linen thread around this strip of grosgrain ribbon. It gives it a nice touch, don't you think?

I was very humbled to have this card make Showcase! It's my 4th sample to make it this year--which thrills me! Thanks for celebrating with me!! Smiles, Laura


  1. Congrats! THat is a wonderful card. I love it. I will have to use the idea of using the linen thread to tie the ribbon. I always have to pay extra postage.
