Hubby's Christmas Card
I always end up making hubby's card at the last minute. I'm still trying to get all the cards I've made signed & sent, but last night I took a break. As soon as I saw the Impression Obsession Cabin stamp, I knew I had to buy it. Our dream is a cabin in the forest & I knew this would be the perfect image to use on cards I make for Steve. I began by stamping Screen Cover-a-Card in VersaMark Dazzle frost on brown cardstock. Then I stamped Crochet Snowflake 2 using Vintage Cream in 2 corners. The cabin is stamped in VersaMark & embossed in Zing! Chestnut ep & trimmed out. I used spray adhesive to cover the entire image in Art Institute Angel Dust glitter & used the same brown cardstock for a small mat. The sentiment is embossed with the same powder, trimmed into a tag & edged with the glitter using a glue stick. I twisted some hemp & attached it to the background before adding the cabin & sentiment using foam tape. The finishing touch for a little color is provided by the 3 green buttons. I love how this turned out--always a plus when you're making lots of cards! I'm entering the Celebrating the Holidays challenge as all stamps are by Impression Obsession: Cabin, cling--H1830, Crochet Snowflake 2, cling--E13064, Screen Cover-a-Card--CC049, Christmas Magic--B3585. Thanks to Lai-Yoke I just discovered Stamping Sensations Blog, so I'm also entering this card into their December challenge. I so appreciate your taking time to come by. Wishing you peace & joy at this holiday season.
