Good morning! I normally don't post on the weekends, but I just realized that I hadn't posted this card to show everyone, plus hubby isn't home so I have time for my blog this morning.
This is a card I made for a card swap I hosted this past summer. It was a Christmas in July swap. I'm sorry this photo isn't that great, but I don't have any of these cards left to retake it- I gave them all away within my swap. This was a real easy card to make and it's perfect if you like to make your holiday cards since this card is flat and it won't require extra postage.
I first stamped my image using bravo burgundy ink and then on another scrap piece of card stock I stamped the same image again using old olive ink. Then all I did was punch out the portions of the stamp I wanted to be green and place them over top of my first stamped image. I used dimensionals so that they would be raised up just a little bit. You can do this with any portion of the image you like; on my card here I decided to punch out 2 of the flowers along the top and the snowflake in the word joy along the bottom.
I know it's hard to see in my photo so I wanted to point out that in the word season the letter O has a rhinestones jewel inside it.
The burgundy strip of paper along the left side of my card is actually a 1/4" edge from my designer series paper that I folded over. I do this a lot when I want a little bit of a different edge and it's so easy to do. Then along the right side of my background paper I punched a small strip of old olive card stock using my scallop border punch.
Well, that's about it for today. I promised my son that we would make cupcakes today so I'd better run. We are going to try and make those new Fun da-middles cupcakes with the filling in the center. Have a great rest of the weekend!
