IM98 – Free Skate

Happy Monday everyone! This week we have a beautiful Christmas tree for inspiration!

I decided to focus on the pretty colors and the ornaments on the tree…

I love this paper but it is just so hard to get a good picture of it!

Here’s the details…

  • Very Vanilla – 4 1/4 x 11 folded; round bottom two cormers
  • Very Vanilla – 3 3/4 x 5, round bottom two corners, stamp greeting using the Copper Metallic ink, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Brightly Gleaming DSP – pick 4 patterns and punch out the smaller Gleaming Ornament punch, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Copper Foil – punch out just the top of the Gleaming Ornament punch, add top of each ornament

Yep…that is all there is to it.  Here’s another shot of the card to try to see the copper a little better…

And now for our latest collection…and it’s the fourth week of our 6 weeks of Christmas and this week we have…

Our SIX WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS Collection continues with Week 4’s gorgeous So Many Stars Bundle! We loved all the Stitched Star sizes and greetings that is in this bundle! We’ve combined it with the beautiful Feels Like Frost Designer Paper for a soft and shimmery look!
