CAS Christmas SetPosted: December 5, 2009
I finally stamped last weekend. I had a deadline to meet: a set of cards for a silent auction at my daughters’ violin ensemble fundraiser. It took me a while to get going, as I seem to be out of practice! I pulled out my new Flourishes set “All that Glitters” and made one card using gold embossing powder before deciding that I needed to move faster so embossing and cutting around the Christmas ornaments wasn’t a good idea.
After making one card with a single framed ornament and sentiment the next four designs fell into place easily. I made two of each card, stamped matching envelopes and made a matching box using Stampin Up’s Merry Moments designer paper. All the cards were made with ivory cardstock teamed up with a different feature colour. I took my photos with the featured colour as backdrop as I’ve seen Susan Raihala do so effectively. Sadly my photos are nowhere near as clear as hers. I had trouble photographing these cards; it is not obvious that they are all ivory with an accent colour, not white.
