Simple Holiday Best

Oh what fun it is to play with stamping and some friends hey!! Friday night a few ladies from my group and I got to stamp until we cramped :) So I had lots of fun making up different style Christmas cards. This one was so simple. Having the Big Shot makes a word of difference to kreate quick cards - the texture alone is so pretty with such minimal effort! Don't delay, tell Santa you've been good this year and you'd really like the Big Shot!! I'd be happy to be one of Santa's helpful Elves and make all your crafty wishes come true :) Tell Santa to make it easy, shop ONLINE with me!
I was thrilled to finally ink up the 'Merry Christmas' image from the Holiday Best lev 1 hostess set. And what was better, it was the perfect fit for my Ornament Punch! How cool is that?!!
* Standard Whisper White card base
* Ran it through the Big Shot with the gorgeous Petals a Plenty embossing folder (found in the Holiday Mini)
* Inked up my image, from the hostess lev 1 Holiday Best, in VersaMark and stamped onto Real Red cardstock. Sprinkled White Embossing Powder over it and set it with my Heat Tool
* Lined up the image inside my Ornament Punch and had a beautiful decorated ornament
* 5/8" Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon coordinates perfectly with the ornament
* Tied a Silver Cording (also in the Holiday Mini) bow around the neck of the ornament and added another piece 'hanging' from the ribbon
Simple, but I love the pop of red against the white! Hope you like it! I have so much more to show you :) Just need to find the time to type it up to share with you! Anyone else feeling the 'panic'??? I LOVE Christmas, but it is coming way too fast. So much to do... on that note, gonna run! Happy Stamping!
