Warm Holiday Wishes
Yes, YIKES! I'm still making Christmas cards. I know! I know! They should be in the mail. Well, just think of it as extending the Christmas joy and cheer if you receive my card after Christmas. The warm wishes will be nonetheless sincere.
This is the first time I've used this Anna Griffin (All Night Media) sleigh stamp. My oldest son gave me a gift certificate last Christmas to Hobby Lobby and this was one of the beautiful stamps I bought with it and am using for cards this year.
The layout is very simple. I stamped the sleigh and sentiment on white cardstock with Navy dye ink. I matted it on silver metalic card stock and mounted both on blue card stock. I love punching everything I can with my Martha Stewart Snowflake punch so I had to add a silver snowflake, centered with a navy brad on top of blue polka dot sheer ribbon. I added a little blue Martha Stewart fine glitter below the sleigh. I can't decide for sure if I like that or not.
I had better get busy and finish up my cards and get them in the mail. I don't want you to have to wait until Valentine's Day to get a Christmas card from me. :-)

Lovely card - pretty vintage sleigh.ReplyDelete
Christmas cards....in the mail? You mean people actually mail them after they make them? LOL!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous card, and I love the sleigh stamp too. :-)
Jennifer, you asked about my holiday card if it was resist embossed - yes and afterwards sponged with distress ink. Actually I was thinking of you as you have a load of vintage All Night Media stamps which I think would be suited for this technique. I would love to see you try it!ReplyDelete
If you pass me your e-mail address I have something to send you.
