I love Christmas – the traditions, the tree, the sending and receiving of cards and I have a very traditional view of it but while I like traditional Christmas cards and colors there are times I go for a little bit of contemporary and today’s card is just that.
I used the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set because it has some nice greetings and I love that big ol’ snowflake!
Card base: 11 x 4 1/4 Sahara Sand Card ~ scored @ 5 1/2
Layer 1: 5 1/4 x 4 Coastal Cabana Card
Layer 2: 5 x 3 3/4 Sahara Sand Card
Layer 3: 3 3/4 x 2 Whisper White Card
Ink Colors: Soft Suede and Versamark
The second layer is stamped with the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set – using Versamark ink then sprinkled with White Embossing Powder then set with the Heat Tool.
The 3rd layer was first stamped with Soft Suede ink then run thru the Big Shot with the Subtle Embossing Folder and the edges sponged with Soft Suede Ink and a Stampin Sponge.
The ribbon is from the Tea room Ribbon Combo Pack – I chose the ribbon first then pulled out the Coastal Cabana card to compliment it. That is often the way with my color choice – look to see what I have in my ribbon drawer then make my card!
All the layers are attached using Multipurpose Liquid glue so it makes it nice and flat for putting in the post.
