Once more another month has passed and it the 25th again which means it is Rudolph Day at Stamping For Pleasure, which is where Sarn encourages us to get ahead of the game by making two or more christmas cards each month. Here are my two for this time.
I started off with a sizeable piece of white card that was left after stamping the image that I used in my last blog post.I used Pan Pastels in red green and yellow and applied them randomly to cover the card to create a christmassy coloured background. I then used Versamark ink to stamp this large Chocolate Baroque background stamp one and half times and then embossed with WOW gold embossing powder. I trimmed the whole image close to the edge and wrapped it round with some red linen ribbon and then mounted it onto a square dark green card blank. The
greeting is also from CB and was stamped onto a strip of the coloured card and embossed with the same gold EP. I also used the Versamark ink pad to ink the edges and embossed with the gold.I then attached it over the ribbon with thin foam tape.
For the second one I used the half stamped image and trimmed it tidy and edged it with a gold Krylon pen, and then mounted it onto a piece of dark green card.This time I used an A6 ivory card blank and the same red ribbon. There wasn't any more of the Pan Pastelled!!? card so I used a bit of the dark green matting card for the Joy stamp, another from CB. Again I embossed the word and the edges with gold EP. I also used foam tape again to attach to the card and the added a few green and red gem stones for decoration.
I apologise here if I have missed anyones blog as I have had the same problem with blogger dashboard for the last few days as many others seem to have had. Fortunately it appears to working OK today.
