Christmas With a Woodsy Flair
Hope you all had a great weekend. Hubby and I travelled to a football game on Saturday to see the Alabama Crimson Tide play. They won!!! So, that made for a super day. On Sunday night, hubby and I sang in a praise and worship concert. So, no crafting for me...just a busy and very nice weekend.
I really love my card today. Friends of Speedy TV's challenge this week, #37, is to case someone's card. Just find a card you love and case it (copy and share everything or copy and selectively edit). I didn't get to play in the Featured Stamper 289 challenge on Splitcoaststampers about 3 weeks ago but this stamper, Maureen Merritt aka mamamostamps had the most awesome and fun gallery. When I saw this card, I knew it was the one I wanted to case.
The stamp set I used is from Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps, A Heinrich Co., Greetings of the Season Mini. The image was stamped on a top note die from Stampin'Up! A bit of sponging was added to the edge.
I used an embossing folder called Woodgrain Texture Fades-Alterations from Tim Holtz. It was inked with chocolate chip ink before running it through the machine giving it a more woodsy look. I've added a bit of chalk and sparkle to my pine cone. The last thing was to add my ribbon.
The stamp set being given away to some lucky winner playing in our challenge this week is New Pines.
