Hello everyone! Well, it's the day after Thanksgiving and the official kick off to Christmas. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and you were all able to spend some time with family and friends and have some yummy food too. Black Friday--are you brave and face all the crazy shopping crowds or do you stay home? We are just staying home--where it's nice and warm. :) Today is also my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have a very elegant but CAS (Clean And Simple) Christmas card to share with you.
Crisp and clean--white and gold. I think this is probably the simplest Christmas card I have ever made but I have to tell you I absolutely love it! CAS is usually not my style but I do try to step out of the box every now and then and sometimes I surprise myself LOL! I have been looking at this beautiful Penny Black Adornment stamp for a little while so when I received it in my DT package I was over the moon. I love the wispy look of the wreath and it can be used for so many occasions. I stamped the image using VersaMark Watermark Stamp Pad and then heat embossed using Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder and a heat tool. Then I used S4-420 Majestic Circles die template to cut/emboss the die cut. I added 3D Foam Squares to the die cut for some dimension.
Here is a close up of the wreath. I also added a few Melissa Frances White Pearls.
To finish off the card I stamped the sentiment in the lower right corner using one of the stamps from the JustRite Papercraft CR-02047 Snowflake Vintage Labels Seven Clear Stamps. I also embossed the sentiment. Then I added some May Arts Metallic Gold String to the side of the card and tied a bow. If you are still needing to make some Christmas cards this would be a good one that you could make several of in very little time.
Please be sure to check out The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store for all of the fantastic paper crafting products and the Blog for inspiration from the Design Team.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
