Welcome to week seven of the 2019 Heart of Christmas blog hop!
This week has been hectic at our place with my latest book going to print (code for lots of last minute corrections and working all weekend!), training a new writer at my work and then my youngest son graduating school…did I really just type that sentence????
So what does all of this have to do with my card tonight? Well, it means I only had a very brief window to design, make, photograph and watermark my card before blogging about it. So this week I reached for the tools that make card making super easy and super fast: punches and embossing folders!
The three baubles were punched out using the Gleaming Ornaments punches after I stamped them in Momento Ink using stamps from the co-ordinating Christmas Gleaming stamp set.
Can you guess what coloured Stampin’ Up! blends I used to colour my ornaments? I stepped right outside of my comfort zone and went with an assortment of pinks: Flirty flamingo (dark and light) and the light Lovely Lipstick blender pen.
The “Merry Christmas” sentiment was stamped in Crumb Cake using a stamp from the same stamp set: Christmas Gleaming.
My card this week is finished off with a bows of linen thread and some Melon Mambo rhinestones from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones.
This card was so quick and easy to make and I really love how the woodland embossing folder on the base layer adds so much dimension and texture while also allowing me to make a very clean and simple card.
