My next series of posts will feature the Berry Christmas Set from the Holiday Mini. This is a very simple, elegant set that makes Christmas Card production easy.
The colors for this card are Soft Suede, Certainly Celery and Real Red. The 1/2 inch circle punch was used to punch out the berries, which were attached to the wreath. A 2 inch piece of Real Red Polka-Dot grosgrain ribbon was attched to the card and then stapled. Used in this way, a little ribbon goes a LONG way. Also, you don't have to tie a bow!! The addition of just a touch of red ribbon adds texture and coordinates with the stamped images.
Other Options: If you want to add sparkle to this card, try the following technique:
1) Ink up your stamp.
2) Use a sponge dauber to apply some Champagne Mist Shimmer paint to the inked stamp.
3) Huff on the stamp to re-moisten.
4) Stamp your image. You will notice a nice little shimmer!
5) Clean the stamp immediately and thoroughly.
