Welcome to this month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop where each month we focus on a different theme. This month our theme is “Elegant Christmas.”
My card uses Early Espresso as its base on which I layer a pattern from the A Little Foxy DSP. To the bottom of the DSP, I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock and then ripped off the top to give it a jagged edge.
I then used the Santa’s Sleigh Bundle to create my card’s focus. I cut out the base of the sleigh in Early Espresso and then the intricate sleigh piece in Real Red.
Now for the fun part. I created a card the other day where I heat embossed in white some pinecones. I purposefully didn’t use the heat buddy because I wanted to have a “speckled” effect. I wanted to try this same effect on my Garden Green tree. To do this I inked up my D Block in Versamark. Yes, you read that correct, my D Block. I then dabbed the D Block over my tree which I sprinkled with White Embossing Powder and heat embossed. Cool effect, right?!
Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Real Red and added a Real Red ribbon at the bottom.
