It's here, it's here!! That wonderful time of year when the elections are finally over and the thoughts of crafters turn to Christmas, and if you haven't started yet, it's time to get going! I made some Christmas cards back in August, you can take a look at them *here* or click Christmas in the list of Labels in the left column to see all my Christmas projects.
I created 2 versions of my second Christmas card this year. First a very simple version that would work well for mass-production, and then one that I've "stepped up" with dry-embossing, a colored base and a decorated interior panel.
Stamp sets: Everything Eleanor, Delightful Dozen
Colors: Garden Green, Raspberry Ripple, Whisper White
Tools: Small Heart and Owl Builder punches, Framed Tulips embossing folder
Accessories: Stampin' Dimensionals, glue dots, white taffeta ribbon
Techniques: inked only the outer portion of the medallion stamp with a marker to create the wreath, faux bow is punch art, fork bow dyed with Raspberry Ripple ink
Finally, I used the same medallion stamp from Everything Eleanor with images from the Mixed Medley Hostess Set to create a square Christmas tag. Colors are Always Artichoke and Raspberry Ripple.
