I know that Christmas has passed, and I am sure for some of you now a distant memory as plans for Hogmanay are well under way. However, I still have some Christmas cards to share. These were made using stamps from Card-io who provide a large number of small stamps which can be used for many an occasion. The stamps were inked with browns, reds and greens from Stampin’ Up and layered on cardstock to make these two wreath christmas cards. The sentiment was stamped from Lili of the Valley
It shows how different a card can look when the background layers are put down the opposite way.
One card many different ways. This card used the Stampin’ Up Stylish Christmas stamp set, using the Poppy Parade and Old Olive dies. The swirl was embossed using classic gold. I do love the tonic embossing powders as they give a lush smooth look when heated. The Poinsettia and holly leaves were fussy cut and layered on to the card, which was in turn layered on to glossy gold card. The background was made using Poppy Parade card and embossed using the Stampin’ Up Holly embossing folder.
