Warmest of Wishes Christmas Card

Today is our day to head home from Las Vegas.  Its been a great trip, but I’m ready to head home. But before I fly out, I thought I would share one more card I made with some of my new goodies I brought with me on the trip.  I decided last night that I wanted to play with my new Stocking punch and so I started digging through the limited supplies I brought to see what I had to go with it.

 Noel Stocking Chistmas Card (1024x996)

Like many of my cards, my original idea didn’t pan out so I started goofing around. IMG_3188 (1024x768) I ended up finding a paper I liked out of the Spice Cake paper pack…see! Its not just for Fall!  Then I used the colors I had with me so I ended up with Cajun Craze and River Rock cardstock and ink.  Some quilted ribbon, drawn faux stitching, and some little pearls and voila!

i think this is my first Christmas Card of the season.  I have a feeling I’ll be using that stocking punch a lot more in the future.

Warmest of Wishes Spice Cake Card

It feels great to break into some of my new Holiday Mini goodies.  I knew I wanted to play with the new Spice Cake designer paper and so I pulled out colors from the paper and went from there.

To make some of the different elements i added to the card, I started with 3 panels from the Spice Cake paper and layered them on Early Espresso cardstock.  I then used my markers to color in the Warmest Of Wishes sentiment from the new hostess set, also called Warmest of Wishes. :)  I cut out around the image and then punched out a Decorative Label punch which I cut in half so I could easily layer it behind the sentiment. 

I did something similar with the ribbon.  i used the Scallop Dotted Ribbon punch to punch out two strips of More Mustard cardstock and then layered them behind the new Early Espresso Quilted ribbon.  i wanted a little something more so i added a loop of the Early Espresso ribbon on each side of the sentiment before adhering to my card. 

Its not my favorite card of all time but I had a lot of fun playing with everything.  And I can’t wait to play around with some other ideas.  So, off to stamp I go!
