The Stampin' Schach Design Tips:
- Gold! Brushed Gold card stock is a perfect neutral background to show off the gorgeous patterns from the Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper collection. Plus, it adds a touch of elegance and formality.
- Distress! A Sponge Dauber and Soft Suede ink add a softly distressed edge to all layers of this card for a subtle vintage appearance.
- Layer your labels! After stamping the "Merry Christmas" sentiment from the Come to Bethlehem set in Early Espresso onto a Very Vanilla Modern Label, a second label was punched from Cherry Cobbler. This was cut vertically and extended beyond the ends of the sentiment for more finished look.
- Glitz and Glam! A Gold Glow "smooched" and layered medallion, consisting of a fan-fold flower made from the 1-3/4" Scallop Circle punch, a Brushed Gold 2-3/8" Scallop Circle, and a Cherry Cobbler 2-1/2" Circle, adorns the center of the card. Basic Pearls, Champagne Glass Glitter, and an Antique Brad complete the look.
Brady the Boy, Kim the husband, the Boxer Twins, and I celebrated our Thanksgiving, Wednesday evening. Today we will make the trip to my sister's, 2 hours away, with the Boxer Twins in tow. Little does my sister know what is in store for her! I just hope that they behave themselves. I have packed food, water, and lots of toys. This is the first time that my sister, who is not really an animal lover, has invited my fur-babies to a family function. Let's hope that it is not the last...
I hope that you enjoyed today's card. Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think. And as always, if you have any questions about the cards that I make or the techniques that I use, I am only an email away! Remember to stop by Friday when I will name the winner of the Thanksgiving Blog Candy. I am excited to find out who it will be! Don't forget that you can comment today until 11:00 PM CST. Until next time...
