I am happy to have found some time to create a card for World Card Making Day.
I'm uploading it onto the Moxie Fab World blog in the Christmas card division, for a chance to win some terrific goodies.
Oh, and here's the Gallery of Cards to find some great inspiration from.
Now let's discuss my card.
That background was fun to do.
I saw this great and easy tutorial on Dawn Olchefske's blog on how to ink up your embossing folders and use them as stamps.
So smart! And it got my wheels turning. ;)
For my card background, I used Kraft cardstock and Cranberry pigment ink, plus a Cuttlebug embossing folder called Holly Ribbons.
Because I used pigment ink, I quickly sprinkled it with Clear Detail embossing powder and heat set it.
The main image is from an older SU set called A Wish of Peace.
The sentiment is from a new CTMH set called Merry & Bright, and I stamped it onto a piece of Colonial White cardstock ribbon banner shape that I cut with the new Cricut Artiste cartridge.
I glittered up the tree with a glue pen and some chunky glitter.
Happy creating! :)
