Just right for the cooler weather I'm experiencing right now. I'd like to pretend that this will give me a jump on starting Christmas cards early but....who am I kidding? I've only just moved onto summer, lol!
The Wonderful Wreath stamp set and coordinating framelits didn't see nearly enough love in my stamp room last year so I decided to fix that with today's card. I was also inspired by the card layout on page 33 of the new SU catalog.
I started with a Crumb Cake base on which I stamped a sentiment from the set in the same color ink. Looking at it, I think next time I would choose a slightly darker ink just to make the pattern of the repeated sentiment show up more.
For the main panel, I embossed a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Woodgrain folder. Lovely on it's own but if you look close, you will see that I brushed Wink of Stella all over. Oh what sparkle and shine...just like new fallen snow!
The wreath was heat embossed twice--the first stamp with white embossing powder and the second time with silver embossing powder. I love the look of the white & silver emossing on Crumb Cake. I cut two layers of the Christmas Greetings Thinlits from thick Whisper White cardstock and Silver Foil paper. I layered the two for a drop shadow effect and adhered them together with the fine tip glue pen.
I hope you like my card today....be sure to pop over to The Paper Players and check out the rest of the Design Team inspiration.
