I love making Christmas cards & have always worked on them throughout the year. Now it's even more fun since there are always challenges to inspire me.
I failed to get my holly card done for the previous Merry Monday challenge, but that's OK since emboss resist is one of my favorite techniques & just what I wanted to use for a card with Impression Obsession Holly Branch, F8786 & Deck the Halls, B3828 for the IO current challenge. I used Distress Ink victorian velvet & iced spruce--non-traditional colors, but I think they work for an elegant card. The embossing folder is Cuttlebug & I added shimmer with my new (thanks to Cat!) Wink of Stella pen.
May use this layout again with traditional colors--pretty quick to make. I love hearing what you think, so let me know.
Yesterday was great--wonderful weather for our drive to see the puppies who are now 6 weeks old. Snapped this picture of Mt Jefferson through the car window as we were on the freeway, but you can get an idea of how beautiful it is. The puppies have grown, of course, & are more active & vocal.
We tried to compare the boys a bit more this time, but couldn't pick ours yet. 2 weeks & he's coming home with us--can't believe it's almost here! Off to work--hope you have a wonderful weekend.
