Another Christmas Card

Made another sample for Island Scrapbooking over the weekend. Decided to play with my other Hero Arts background stamp I got recently. I love this Holly stamp but didn't know what to do with it, so I used the same emboss resist techinque again using gold embossing powder. I then distressed the edges with pine distress ink and the inside with barn door. Since the background was not large enough to fill the space of a 5x7 card, I mounted it on red cardstock and used my MS double loop border punch. Topped it off with a large bow and sentiment. The sentiment was stamped on the Tim Holtz labels die and then I just hand cut the border around it. Making these non cutesie cards are so out of my element. I bet the customers will think Debi made this one! Supplies:
  • Holly background stamp- Hero Arts
  • Merry Christmas sentiment- CC's Designs
  • Distress Ink- Ranger
  • Double loop punch- MS Crafts
  • Gold embossing powder
  • Ribbon
  • Labels die- Tim Holtz Sizzix
  • Cardstock- Bazzil
