It's Merry Christmas Monday! Today I have a Christmas card that I made using the Merry Snowflakes stamp set along with the Wintry embossing folder from the Stampin' Up! holiday catalog. On Saturday, we had our team meeting and I demonstrated different ways to use the Stampin' Blending Brushes. I love our blending brushes, they are so much fun to use. They are so soft and easy to handle.
To create the look on my card, I used the blending brush to add ink to the Wintry embossing folder. We want to put the ink on the side that has the Stampin' Up! logo. I then ran it through the Stampin' Up! Cut & Emboss machine. You get this beautiful embossed and inked piece of paper that is so beautiful. Since there snowflakes on this, I wanted to make them sparkle so, I added Wink of Stella to the whole image.
This is a close up picture so you can see the embossed image better and kinda see the sparkle. It was hard trying to get the camera to capture the sparkle this time. I stamped the image with the Night of Navy ink and then cut it out using the Tasteful Labels dies.
For the bow on the card, I used the Glittered Organdy ribbon and a Night of Navy ribbon that I thought was still in the annual catalog, but realized when I went to look up the name of the ribbon, that it was discontinued. I am going to have to go through and double check all of my ribbon and make sure that I have only current ones in my holder.
