Stampin’ Creative November Blog Hop – Step into Christmas

Hello and welcome to this month’s Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop! If you are hopping along you will have arrived here at Emerald Kreations – Gina Connor, from the lovely Eimear’s blog, Stampincolour.

This month’s theme is all about “Stepping into Christmas” and I thought I would share with you one of my favourite cards that I have made this season. You will have to forgive me for using a mixture of tools to make this card but I was letting my creative license flow without worrying too much about dipping into too many stamp sets etc.

The theme this week in class was ” Using Designer Series Paper “. So we stamped. folded and used daubers to change the look of our “DSP”.

The card is a regular card 21cm x 14.8cm scored at 10..5cm (along the 21cm side) and then scored in 3cm from the right hand side at the front. I actually stuck the fold down at the front because it didn’t stand too well with the weight of the embellishments on the front.

I used the Merry Music Speciality Designer Series Paper on this card. I stamped a few snowflakes with Soft Sky ink on the actual paper, and then with Crumb Cake ink on the Crumb Cake card. I daubed all the edges with Crumb Cake Ink to make the card look a little distressed, before assembling the card. The Old Olive branches are from the Christmas Staircase Framelits, I added a double bow with Linen thread and a little gold embellishment from Year of Cheer. A few little Rhinestone Basic Jewels gave a little sparkle!

This is the insert of the card. The DSP measures 3cm x 14.8cm and the Whisper White measures 7cm x 14.8cm. Again all the edges are daubed with Crumb Cake ink.

I hope you like the end product as much as I do!
