I've been playing around with the very few Christmas stamps that I do have. Trying to come up with some different ideas. The last Christmas card I did with the reindeer was brayered, it was time to try a couple of different techniques.
The first card was made with the Christmas Lodge Stamp set. I absolutely love this set and have seen many beautiful cards made with it. I haven't come up with anything of my own that I loved until I created this card. I wanted to try a vintage look, so in order to do that I grabbed my very vanilla cardstock and soft suede cardstock. I've seen the snowflakes sponged like this before and wanted to give it a try. Originally I was going to try and add more snowflakes to the card but it was too much. So because I already had them cut and sponged I thought I would try layering them which really gave it some awesome dimension. I popped them up on dimensionals which gave it a wonderful look. As for the rest of the card, I stamped my images in craft white ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. They were stamped on very vanilla. Then I lightly sponged over both images in soft suede ink. Make sure to grab a tissue to clean off excess ink off of your embossed imaged afterwards.
