Carols of Christmas Fireplace

Today's Make-it-Monday uses the new embossing paste as well as the soon-to-be released Carols of Christmas stamp set.  Although this card was time consuming, the end result is worth it.


Although the video below doesn't show how I made this, it does give instructions.  Please let me know if you need clarification on any of the steps.




Thanks for looking!

WOW Wednesday - Carols of Christmas

This week's WOW Wednesday takes a very pretty card and, with just a few changes, makes it even prettier.  This Carols of Christmas stamp set made it very easy -- it's a GREAT set to play with!

Here's the original:



And heres the stepped up version:


The changes were:  adding the vellum layer and embossing the sentiment and instead of having the sentiment stamped on Whisper White and mounted onto green mat, it was simply framed with the green scallop frame.  The position of the bow was also moved to better suit the design.

I'm not sure which one I like better.  Which do you prefer?

Carols of Christmas - Peace on Earth Embossed Card

Today's Technique Tuesday is simple dry embossing with an embossing folder.  When I saw this bundle with the tree dies, I knew instantly that it would look great on a card embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder.  I did make a tiny change from the project in the video (I added an extra tree for more dimension toward the bottom of the card).  Check out  the video below to see how easily this card came together.

For today's WOW Wednesday card, two simple changes took this card to the next level.  It was nice to begin with, but with two small changes, it went from "nice"to "WOW".

Original card:


The stepped up version:


All that was added was the small piece of DSP and the ribbon.  I also changed out the color of the middle layer -- watch the instructional ideo to see why.
