"Joy" Christmas Card
The card I am sharing today is similar to one that I showed you a while back (here), but a tad bit different.
I am so in love with the tone-on-tone damask embossing that I used on this card and have been using it like CRAZY everywhere I turn. The cranberry paper is from the Creative Basics Mistletoe Collection and is a very subtle pattern. I used my Damask Tiles stamp set and stamped with our Cranberry Stamp Pad and quickly dusted with Clear Detail Embossing Powder, then heated with my Heat Gun. Voila!
This card is a standard sized card (5 1/2" x 4 1/4"). Did you know that you can get a package of 50 of these WITH ENVELOPES for only $14.95? It's true! Just click here for the Colonial White pack and here for White Daisy pack. I cut 1" off the front bottom edge. I then added a little scalloped edge that I cut from that strip and I adhered it from the back. The cute little 'black pearls' are from Close To My Heart's new Licorice Opaques. Delish!
