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!
