Am I cheeky to call my own card a stunner? I had to do so little to this wonderful, season digistamp from Eureka to make this card for the new Creative Moments challenge. I coloured with just Tim Holtz distress inks and brushes.
I added the sentiment – and this was the last card I made this year. Very simple and very lovely.
For today’s card I am using a beautiful digi from Scribbles . I printed the design and cut out layers and mounts using a die set from Creative Expressions. This was layered up and positioned over some pretty pearly braid. The backing card is from My Paperstash and used a a pretty painted wooden angel and two white poinsettia as final embellishments.
Athough I love using and colouring digi stamps, every now and again I like to get out proper wood-mounted rubber stamps. Here I have used two and then embossed the images with black embossing powder. It seems strange to use black on a Christmas card (and indeed as I schoolgirl i was once marked down for designing a wrapping paper that had a black background) but with with the silver foil on the Kanban backing paper, I still see the light in this card.
I have used a Lili of the Valley topper for this Christmas card. I matched it with some holly decorated paper from my stash and a topper printed from a Pollyanna Pickering CD. Alll elements were mounted onto dark green before being assembled on the card. I used some rustic jute ribbon behind the topper for a little texture.
