Card of the Week #3

Wednesday, August 8, 2012

It may seem crazy, that I’m starting on my new 2012 Christmas line of cards, tags, and more. But, lately I’ve been thinking about what cards I want to have for sale in my shop; and, I don’t want to wait until the last minute. For some reason Christmas cards are a little more challenging for me than baby shower cards, invitations, and Birthday cards; so,  I figured designing Christmas cards early this year would save me tons of stress. I tried my best to get super creative with this card and I think I did well in capturing the beauty and warmth of my favorite holiday. 
Here are the materials I used for this card: Cream card stock base, Kraft card stock frame, Recollections New Christmas paper stack, ribbon, Lawn Fawn stamps, Inkadinkado Christmas stamps, Black ink, red chalk ink, and my new crafty toy: my gelly pen! 
I took a close up shot of the faux stitching I used on the card with my new gelly pen. I’ve seen lots of papercrafters use this particular pen and I wanted to give it a try. So far, I'm happy with the results. 

Thank you for visiting today for another ‘Card of the Week’ post. Let me know your thoughts on this design. I’d love to hear from you!

  2. I LOVE how you used the gel pen! soo creative to do stiching. Great choice in patterns too the polka dot and the xmas trees mesh well esp w/ the ribbon.

    1. Thanks Jessica! I love my new gelly pen. I'm probably going to be using it on everything now, LOL.
