Hi, friends! It's been quite some time since I've been able to get into my craft room to play along with challenges, but today I was able to do so and I am so happy! I've got a fun and sparkly Christmas card to share with you...take a peek!
I decided to go with a traditional color scheme and add some gold for shine and sparkle. I used stamps from STAMPlorations. I started by stamping some texture with elements from the Holiday Artsy set, punching the pieces out, and adding sponging around the punched circles. I then used a flower from the Eclectic Florals set as a poinsettia and added some leaves from the same set. Gold sequins finished off the centers.
I then stamped the sentiment, found in the Holiday Artsy set, onto the deep red card stock and embossed it with gold embossing powder. I cut it out and then punched one side to create a banner.
These elements were layered onto a card base of patterned paper and finished with some gold elastic cording. The shine was too hard to photograph without it laying face up, so that's why this photo looks a bit different. But I do like the final effect! What do you think? I'd love for you to leave me a comment to let me know!
Thank you for stopping by to take a peek at my creation! I hope that you like what you see, that you take some time for crafting today, and that you join in the fun with the challenges I'm linking with! You can see the list of them below. HUGS and MERRY stamping to you all! :)
