Scandinavian Christmas Card


This is the card my Hostess Club made today along with the tags in the last post. Everyone loved all the projects. This card is CASE'd from the Holiday Mini. The stamp set is Scandinavian Seaon, and the Scandinavian wheel. I really loved the example card in the Mini catalog, and decided just to change a few things about it. This card uses the New Ski Slope DSP, also from the new Mini catalog. I am so in love with this set, and new DSP! This is the first time I have used the New Tafetta ribbon (Kraft) and LOVED it, it's such a pretty, classy ribbon. This is a very simple card, but I loved the finished look! Part of the tree is double stamped, cut out, and popped up on a dimensional for a little depth, and the edge of the Naturals White cardstock is roughed up a little with a bone folder. Hope you like it! This is the FIRST Christmas card I have made this year, I guess I better get rolling, huh?

Very nice! I like how you layered the Christmas tree and used all those layers on the card. That is a cute image.

Very pretty! I love the double stamped, raised piece of the tree- what a nice touch. You're right about that ribbon. It looks really nice!

Naomi,

This is a beautiful card! I love that you popped up a part of the tree! I also like how you added a piece of DSP to the side to give the look of ribbon. Looks simple, but very elegant:)
