Christmas Cards

Cards I made for display at the Perth Heartfelt Stampin' Event held yesterday.

Sneak peak at two new stamp sets in the Holiday Catalogue, "Watercolor Winter" and "Christmas Wishes".  The DSP used is from the 2012/13 Annual Cataolgue, "Be of Good Cheer".  The ribbon is Cherry Cobbler  and Very Vanilla Seam Binding and the new 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon Gumball Green from the new 2012/13 Annual Catalogue.  Cardstock of co-ordinating colours of Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla and a new In-Colour of Gumball Green.  I added some Soft Suede to go with the vintage look on some of my cards.

I found the tutorial on how to do the ribbon weave wreath here.

I tried a new technique I found on YouTube on ribbon weaving.  I love the finished effect.

Pop-up Card

This card showed the 2-step stamps in the "Watercolor Winter" set.

 My Vintage Santa.  Faux Patina technique was used on the Soft Suede cardstock mat.
The "HO HO HO" was cut from the Balloon stamp on the "Christmas Wishes" stamp set.

Faux Patina technique used to create the frame which was punched out with the new
Apothecary Accents Framelits.  The centre was then punched out using
the Extra Large Oval punch.  It was popped up using dimensionals to give the effect of a frame.
