I made a couple of very simple Christmas cards today. While it was nice to take a little break from my usual vintage-distressed-grungy style, I keep thinking these aren't finished. LOL!
I am submitting this first card for this week's Less is More challenge - a bit of bling. I stamped the tree and sentiment on black and heat embossed with silver. I added some rhinestones to the tree for the bling. The tree stamp is Inkadinkado and the sentiment is from the $1.00 bin at Michaels (several years ago).
This card is for Lora's sketch challenge on CardSwaps. The background is embossed with a Sizzix Impressions plate. I went over the raised areas with a Versamarker and applied bronze Perfect Pearls. It looks a little splotchy in the photo, but in person it's not. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and also applied the bronze Perfect Pearls. I don't own any ornament dies, so I found an ornament template online and printed out the size I wanted. I adhered it to the back of some metallic bronze cardstock, cut it out and embossed it with the Swirls Cuttlebug folder. I added an wire hook and some ribbon.
That's three cards for today so I think I'm done. Thanks for stopping by!
