Sorry for the late post but this week as for many of you is a busy one. With family staying with us and trying to be a good hostess sometimes some things fall a bit behind. So on with this post. This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we were to take a simple card from our gallery and Wow it up! I selected a card I created last Christmas with the Snow Swirled stamp set. Now that my card-making skills have improved I knew I could wow up this card.
The card on the left is my simple card from last year. The second card is my wow card. I added the Real Red layer then stamped the red Swirl Tree and on the Very Vanilla layer and ran it through the Big Shot with the Northern Flurry Embossing folder, stamped a couple of red snowflakes, added the Dazzling Diamonds to the embossed snowflakes. Punched the corners with the ticket punch and embellished the tree with pearls. I adhered the ribbon to the Very Vanilla layer before adhering it to the Real Red layer. The sentiment is from the Short & Sweet stamp set. I punched the Very Vanilla oval with the large punch and punched Real Red cardstock with the Scallop punch and adhered with glue dots to the Real Red grosgrain ribbon.
All products are Stampin’ Up! unless noted.
