I have been busy preparing for my Holiday Stamp-A-Stack and several other events that I have going on the next few months! I feel like I have been living in my stamping room. It’s really a good thing, it’s just that I haven’t made a lot of time lately to post on the good ol’ blog. 🙂
I thought I would share with you one of the cards that I designed for my annual Holiday Jingle event. I typically design many holiday cards and then I go through them and pick my favorites.
I try to mix things up a little between cards that are more elegant in style, more whimsy, traditional colors, you get the idea. This is one of the more elegant cards that I designed. I started by stamping the lodge stamp in versamark from the Christmas Lodge stamp set onto a piece of Crumb Cake card stock. I then embossed the lodge using Early Espresso Embossing Powder. I love how embossing powder brings out the details in your images, and this lodge has a lot of details. The Crumb Cake base is layer on a piece of Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper. Then it was all layered on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock that was dry embossed with the Polka Dot Textured Impressions Folder. The base of the card is Early Espresso. I added some Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon and a sentiment to finish it off. This card comes together very easily, but it looks so elegant when you are finished. I love cards like that!
