Well here goes ... First Blog Post Ever ... First Christmas Card of the Season
The base of my card is one of the new Stampin Up 2016 - 2018 In Colors, Dapper Denim, which measures 5 1/2 by 11 and scored at 4 1/4. The layers, inside and out are Very Vanilla which measure 5 1/4 x 4. Today I chose one of my favorite Christmas stamp sets, Embellished Ornaments. I stamped the bauble in Dapper Denim along with the lovely sentiment. The corners are stamped with Garden Green and I used a Blender Pen to color in the leaves and the Real Red Stamp and Write marker to color the berries on the holly and bauble. Using the Delicate Ornament Thinlits which co-ordinate with the Embellished Ornaments stamp set, I cut out the center and top of the bauble in Silver Glimmer Paper and finished off the card with a bow using Silver 1/8 inch ribbon and 3 Metallic Silver Sequins. The Very Vanilla layer on the inside of the card is stamped with holly in Garden Green, again filling in the leaves with the Blender Pen and coloring the berries with the Real Red marker.
