Sylish & Splattered

Challenge week continues for me with today's Christmas card.  For some reason I have really needed a jumpstart to work on my Christmas cards.  Searching the web for challenges has been really helpful!
 
I combined two challenges to make this fairly simple card.  Try Stamping on Tuesday Sketch #143

And the CASual Friday challenge to use embossing.  Actually most of the cards I have made in the past week have had embossing on them.  It's funny how I turn to one technique and use it several different ways for a week or two then move on to the next thing.

First I made the card in blue.


Then I made it again in red and filmed it.


***Note: If you are reading this post in an email or reader you may need to go to my blog to view the video below.  :)

It's hard to capture the sparkle, dimension and colors of these cards, especially with the gloomy weather we have here, so I'll give you another look at the red. 

I hope you will give this card a try.  Imagine it with hearts punched out for Valentines day, or use some DSP and punch out snowflakes.  The possibilities are endless.


Creative Blessings,
Heather North
