Old World Style 15

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, October 3, 2009 @ 9:04 PM | , , ,

Hi Girls! Did many of you take the World Card Making Blog Tour? If so, did it motivate & inspire you to get a jump start on your Holiday cards? While on Tour, I discovered a Brand Spankin' new Challenge. The name of it is called Just Us GirlS, :) If you are interested in further details regarding Just Us GirlS or would like to browse beautifully stamped creations, please feel free to visit Pam or Kristin. I was inspired by Kristin's fantastic sketch & Pam's creation to pull out my stamps & make this Old World Style Christmas card for the JUGS1 challenge. I'd love to hear if you have kicked-off your Holiday card making? Be Sweet!



Here is my Old World Style Christmas card:

I like using embossing folders to add a new dimension to otherwise "flat" paper like so using the Cuttlebug Victoria embossing folder with the Bazzill Pomegranate & the Swiss Dots with the SU Kraft & Chocolate Chip cs.

To give the SU Whisper White an Old World feel, using a sponge dauber, I sponged SU Sahara Sand ink around the edges of the oval images.

Ingredients Used: Stamps: Inkadinkado Christmas Season, PTI Peaceful Poinsettia Ink: SU Chocolate Chip, VersaMagic Paper: Fancy Pants Christmas Magic DP, PTI Aqua Mist, Bazzill Pomegranate, SU Whisper White, Kraft, Chocolate Chip Sprinkles: Spellbinders Scalloped Ovals & Oval nesties, SU embossing powder, generic brads, PTI ribbon, Cuttlebug Victoria & Swiss Dots embossing folders

Hi Mona! This is so pretty! I just love that color combo...one of my favs! So glad you played our first challenge! Hopefully there will be more to come! I read that you are originally from Buffalo...whereabouts? I'm always glad to hear from a neighbor (even if it's a former one!). Enjoy your Sunday...it's probably beautiful in AZ. It's raining here in Buffalo! Gotta love it! :-)
