Wow to think we are one week and two days away from Christmas. This weekend I plan to start my Christmas shopping. Life has been too hectic to start earlier so here we are down to crunch time. I would love to say I have finished my Christmas cards but really I haven't. I have simply run out of time to make more and get them in the mail before Christmas. I finished preparing the last of my cards last night for the mail and they will be off today. So I will apologize now to anyone who does not receive a card from me this year. I am thinking of you.
I have some really cute Christmas cards to share with you that I absolutely adore but I need to wait a few days at least before I can share them as I don't want to spoil it for the recipients as I know they read my blog :)
I am sorry if some of you are getting tired of my colour scheme. This year I chose to make each card different using pretty much the same colours instead of making one or two designs and creating them in volume.
So today I am sharing this classy card. The base is Very Vanilla 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. I stamped my Season's Greeting sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink from the set Snow Swirled.
My image is the Medallion background stamp. I inked it up in Cherry Cobbler and then spritzed it with my Gold Smooch Spritz before I stamped it on my Vanilla cardstock. It makes the stamp a bit messy but I love how the gold is only in the image and not all over the card front. It does take a long time to dry and even a couple weeks after making it some of the gold was still coming off on other papers laying on it. (I have to be honest, I used a bit too much spritz LOL)
I layered my image onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler and added to my card base. I then used retired Gold Cord and wrapped it around the card a few times and tied in a bow.
Enjoy the day and come back soon.
