Christmas Card

Christmas Card

I made my first card one year ago this month. While I have a history of scrapbooking (yes, I will admit it!), I was unfamiliar with Stampin’ Up! until a friend shared her cards with me. I was hooked immediately and began casing other, more experienced card designers for my ideas. I wanted to do something a bit more original, so a fellow demonstrator suggested joining Freshly Made Sketches. Here is the current challenge…..

and here is my interpretation.

I’ve wanted to use the Bright Hopes stamp set and the beautiful pewter embossing powder for sometime and am happy with the results.
