Hello Stampin’ Friends,
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far. I hosted the last of my clubs for the month yesterday and this afternoon I’m off to work. I have to train a new employee today.
Yesterday I promised that I would share the Christmas card that I pulled together at my Star’s meeting on Friday. I tried to use as much of the paper I had already cut, so I stuck with the Whisper White but swapped the Rose Red for Going Gray.
I already had the Pink Pirouette seam binding cut so I thought … what goes good with pink? Hmmmm… GRAY! I have been known to make a few cards with some very non-traditional Christmas colors so here’s my first for the season …
I used the tried and true “Lovely as a Tree” and stamped it in Smokey Slate, then used the greeting from the beautiful “Wondrous Wreath” stamp set. This set comes with the coordinating framelits, so you can bundle the two and save yourself 15%!!
Combining the embossing technique with our decorative masks creates a beautiful effect, especially when you sponge the embossing with an ink to really make them POP! A touch of dazzling diamonds glitter on the tree really gave our card that holiday effect.
The sweet and soft Pink Pirouette seam binding is added for additional dimension, and it just looks prettier!
What better way to finish off your card then to add some star’s to the inside too, and the easiest way was to use our new “Confetti Star’s Punch”. I even slid a piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock behind it to tie our color pallet together and finish off the card.
Not bad for creating a card on the spot! The layout was inspired by the card my club members made this month, so I hope they enjoy another sample.
You may begin shopping by clicking on any of the items used for today’s card.
Thank you for taking time out of your weekend to stop and see me.
Have a beautiful day ~
