Winter and Holiday Card Series 2015 - Card 19
After weeks of making blue and silver themed snowflake cards, it was really nice to just sit and play. I got this stamp set last year, but never really had an opportunity to use it.
While going through my stash, I came across it and just had to open it up. I knew I wanted to create banners with the little guys wishing Happy Holidays, it quickly came together, somehow it's always a quick thing when the focus and the greeting are the same.
The tone on tone background was made with an "ugly sweater" boarder stamp. The longer the card sat, the more the ink faded into the paper creating a very subtle background paper.
Tone on tone "ugly sweater" background with raised die cut gingerbread man banners on gold thread with gold embossed greeting and 4mm sequin accents.
