Christmas Card

It's been a while since I posted because I've been furiously crafting for the two craft fairs I have coming up. If you live in SE Wisc come see me at the Winter Wonderland Fair, Sunday, Nov. 13th from 9a to 4p at Serb Hall. And then on Sat, Nov 19th, I'm at the Holly Dazical Fair from 9a to 4p at Elmwood Elementary in New Berlin.
I'll be posting pics of my creations soon!
I made this quick card for the Splitcoast Sketch#358 here. And it's for PPA#119 here-Holiday.
The base is Cherry Cobbler. I ran some Garden Green thru the Big Shot with the Snow Burst embossing folder. I added some Frostwood Lodge DSP. I cut out the Garden Green oval with my Coluzzle and punched out the Whisper White one with the Large Oval punch. I stamped the "tree" from Pennant Parade in Garden Green, the stand in Early Espresso and the star in Cherry Cobbler. I used the Itty Bitty Shapes punches pack to punch out the star. The tree, star and green oval were all popped up with Stampin' dimensionals. I stamped Merry Christmas from Petite Pairs in Cherry Cobbler, punched it out with the retired Small Oval punch and layered in onto a Cherry Cobbler piece punched with the Small Oval punch.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Pennant Parade, Petite Pairs
Papers: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Frostwood Lodge DSP
Inks: Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Early Espresso
Accessories: Snow Burst embossing folder, Small and Large Oval punches, Coluzzle, Itty Bitty Shapes Punches pack, Stampin' dimensionals
