Hello & Welcome.
Here today with a couple of cards that I'm sharing for the following challenges:
Paper Players #520 - It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Here are the cards that I created for these challenges. The designer paper and stamp/die set are the new items I used.
I started with a piece of unusual (for Christmas) designer paper that I purchased this week at Hobby Lobby. I love the colors and the shimmer of the paper and thought it would be fun to try some Christmas cards using it.
So do you think these colors work for Christmas cards?
So for the first card I used: Pacific Point, then Pink Passion and Lavender Lace (the Pink Passion and Lavender Lace are retired colors). I die cute the bells from Brushed Silver card stock. Almost forgot I used Mint Macaron for the bow.
I layered the designer paper along with a punched strip of the lavender paper onto the pink passion piece. I stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and used Baker's Twine and foam tape to mount the bells. I also mounted that panel onto the Pacific Point card base with foam tape.
Stamp & Die set is from Sizzix - Silver Bells and was purchased at Hobby Lobby. - The bow on the first card is from another die set, Pines and Holly by Newton's Nook.
Second card I used the same colors (except no Pacific Point) and I added Whisper White for the banner.
Also used a Musical Note Embossing folder (Sizzix) and some old retired silver cord from SU.
