Doesn't this card look just like a Christmas gift with a pretty bow?
The stamp set I used is Plaid Bow and Ribbon by Northwoods Rubber Stamps. One of the things I love about this set is that it could be used for any occasion. Actually, I also made a birthday card with it that I will post later this week.
I stamped both stamps twice on white cardstock using Onyx Black Versafine ink, and embossed with JudiKins Clear Detail embossing powder.
I colored the image using Tombow (water based) markers, then cut out each one.
The cardstock I used is Classic Red Prismatics . It's such a beautiful Christmassy shade of red. I used my Argyle Cuttlebug embossing folder to add texture and design to the paper. The green note card is Classic Green Prismatics .
I cut one of the ribbons and made it two pieces for the vertical ribbon. Then I adhered the horizontal ribbon piece to the card. I took the one of the bows and cut the loops from it, adhering them under one bow to add dimension. Then I stamped just the center of the bow on a scrap of paper, colored it, and popped it up in the center using foam tape.
The sentiment is Northwoods Dash Merry Christmas . I used my rectangular Nestabilities to frame it.
Honestly, it was all I could do to MAKE myself not add other things to the tag, or the card. I wanted it to be simple, yet striking. Why is it so hard for us to quit while we're ahead? LOL!
I had a fabulous weekend. What that really means is that I got some stamping done! :-) Be sure to check back. I have a lot to show you this week.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
