Today, I would like to share my Christmas card with you. I know I've not shared here in a long while. I've been busy working on my writing projects. More coming on that soon. I'm having so much fun writing, but I had to take a day off so that I could play with my paper, ink, stamps and dies. A girl can only go so long without making a card.
The basket is heat-embossed in gold (Divinity Designs). The ivy and bow are die-cuts (Spellbinders Paper Arts). The sentiment also heat-embossed in black (Fiskars). Look at the detail in the bow. Isn't it gorgeous!?! The red layer is a kind of leather-like and is full of texture (the Paper Studio). The bottom layer is bright, metallic gold. They look so pretty together.
Designer Tip: Don't feel like you must create cards or other paper projects using only stamps and dies from one company. So many stamps and dies work beautifully together. There is one exception to keep in mind. If you are entering a challenge on a website, sometimes you must use only that company's products.
Thanks so much for stopping in. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas surrounded by all those you love most.
