Inspired by my Christmas card Saturday?
Well, I have another one to share today. I was surfing challenges again and came across one that struck me. Create with Connie & Mary, CCMWinter13-01. Loved it! I haven’t played along with them in a while. Heck, I haven’t played with any challenges lately!
But, I saw the layout and immediately I had a card in mind. It was nice to be able to create a card in no time because I had the idea already.
Black and cream are my favorite for very elegant cards, Christmas is no different. My base here is also my favorite, Naturals Ivory. I stamped and embossed my greeting on the Naturals Ivory too. Stamping on this card stock is tricky. It’s not a smooth card stock. Luckily, this greeting is not totally filled in. The embossing really helped to make it pop.
Past that, it’s just some basic card stock placement according to the sketch. The Modern Medley DSP is not a Christmas paper, but here, you could never tell. It’s nice, isn’t it? The sketch called for ribbon at the top, so I went through the current ribbon I have and came up with this 1/8 Silver Ribbon from the mini.
All in all, this card is stunning in person.
As you can see, I have upped the size of the photos here, not sure about it. I’ll give it a few posts…….
Love to read your comments too!
