Scandi Christmas

Hello and welcome to my crafty space!  Today's card was created from a stamp set that was gifted to me from a fellow team member and friend, Julie.  I was surprised and blessed by all the goodies she sent me, but I'm ashamed that I am just now crafting with this!  I used the one inch thick embossing folder included with the stamp sent and then lightly inked it with memento inks.  I then layered them in stripes to mimic a Christmas sweater.   As the card was coming together, it seemed more masculine so I decided to use the deer, instead of the bird I originally was going to use.  I think the card came together nicely, and it was so nice to stamp instead of coloring!



Products used:  white/cranberry card stock, rhubarb stalk/olive green Memento ink, Recollections white embossing powder, white half backed pearls, SC Designs Scandi Christmas stamp set/embossing folder, and Darice ink pods

  2. What a fabulous card Joy - love the textured background you have created here, and the stag head certainly makes it a great masculine card.
