12 weeks of Christmas #2
Welcome to my 12 weeks of Christmas #2!
I saw a similar card idea in the new Papercrafts magazine, and decided to use it as inspiration for a card using the new "Dasher" under $12.00 stamp from Stampin' Up!
I began with a card base of 5 1/2" x 11" in Old Olive, and scored at 5 1/2".
Next I added a piece of Merry Moments designer paper 5 3/8" x 2 1/4".
The "Dasher' stamp is one of my favourite because it stamps a nice clean image, and adds the "WOW" factor to a simple card design.
Here I stamped with Versamark ink onto Real Red card stock. Next I sprinkled on white embossing powder to add colour, and then set with a heat gun.
The dimensions of the Real Red cardstock are 3 6/8" x 2 3/4". It is layered upon Chocolate Chip cardstock cut to 3 7/8" x 2 7/8".
Lastly, is the 1 1/4" striped grosgrain ribbon, wrapped around the front of the card and tied into a bow. I made a custom envelope for this size of card. You could easily make this card in the standard 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" size.
There you have it - thanks for stopping by!
