Lovely As A Tree Embossed Christmas

Lovely As A Tree Embossed Christmas

One of my favourite stamp sets is Lovely As A Tree so I was excited to use it once again for one of my Christmas cards.  Creating the card base with Basic Black allows the whisper white layer and cherry cobbler layer to stand out.  Of course, the white embossing powder used on the all of the stamped images creates a sparkling greeting.

Smile When Bella Brings Wishes

No matter how a card like this arrives, I smile when Bella brings wishes and I’m sure you would, too!  Using punches and Designer Series Paper for the background, I found this card was easy to put together.  I used the Real Red Stampin’ Blend to add a little pop of colour and decided to leave Bella au naturelle!

This is a design that can easily be adapted to any colour.  During our monthly card class, the ladies were given a choice of colours – these are their creations (as well as another Gorgeous Grape sample that I made) – aren’t they so cute?
