The Stampin' Schach Design Tips
- Depth! The Lodge from the Christmas Lodge set was stamped with Early Espresso Craft Ink and heat embossed with Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder. It was then partially snipped out and positioned in front of the images from Lovely As a Tree to give the illusion of depth.
- Sparkly Bow! A snippet of Always Artichoke Seam Binding was threaded through an Always Artichoke Button and tied into a bow. Both the ribbon and the button were liberally kissed with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz.
- Merry! For a little more pizzazz, I decided to add the Merry sentiment from Teeny Tiny Tags.
- Texture! Both the Stripes and Houndstooth Textured Impressions Embossing Folders were used in creating this card for a healthy dose of yummy texture. And for even more fun, an Early Espresso strip punched using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch was added, along with a few pearls.
I hope you like today's card! I will be interested in hearing whether you like the version with the tag, or without the tag, as seen here:
I like them equally as well. So when in doubt, post them both! Let me know in today's comment your preference. Please remember, your comments are so very important to me. I do read each and every one. And remember, if you ever have any questions about the cards that I make or the techniques that I use, I am only an email away...although I am typing with a handicap. Brody shut the door on the pointer finger of my right hand. I was heading out the door, and Muffy had her nose where it didn't belong...as usual. I was poking her nose back inside when Brody jumped on the door, slamming it on my finger. It is not broken, but boy is it swollen and purple. But you know what...better my finger than Muffy's nose! Until next time...
