Yes, my title says it all! I’m starting to design my Christmas Cards! I’m sure there will be more when the Holiday Mini comes out, but I figure I need to start now and so do my girls!!
Today I am sharing with you a design I came up with using the stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called At Home with You! I know I have shown other cards using this stamp set, but when you add the Embossing Paste and the Pattern Party Decorative Masks it takes the card a step further than I had before!! The embossing paste really makes the front of the card a house! Here is a picture of the card:
I added two drops of Cherry Cobbler reinker to the Paste and mixed it on my Silicone Craft Sheet (soooo easy to clean after!) and then spread it over the Brick pattern on my Whisper White Cardstock (5 1/4″ x 4″ tape it down so it won’t move). It was MUCH easier than I thought it would be! It dried in just 30 minutes! For this NON patient person that was awesome! I did the brick first and then by the time I was ready for the front of the card, it was dry! Yay for me! No waiting!
Here is a close up of the bushes with the ornaments:
I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen and let it dry.
And finally a close up of a side view:
I want to try the battery lights for this card, but I’m a little intimidated by it…….anyone do that before?
I will be making more Christmas cards as time goes on! I plan on having a Christmas card class next month……I better get going on designing! 🙂
I also have blog candy!!
You can get in on the drawing by posting comments here on this blog (any post! or multiple posts!) or on my Facebook page and I will put your name down each and every time you comment! But be aware…..there are some that follow me that take that comment VERY seriously! I’ve had her comment on each and every post that I make and she also comments on my Facebook page, Twitter AND my Instagram! She’s one serious girl!
