Clean and Simple Christmas Cards
Hi everyone. It's Susanne today and I'd like to show you some clean and simple Christmas cards, that I created with the Rubber Dance "Pine Fire Yew" stampset as well as the "Christmas Greetings" sentiment stamps.
I used some light blue cardstock for the card base and inked the edges with my opak white ink pad. After that I stamped the pine branch into the right upper corner with Versamark Dazzle. That gives you a shimmery tone on tone effect. I only waited about 2-3 hours until I stamped the main image on the left hand side (I used VersaMark) and when I covered it with the white detail embossing powder the powder stuck also to the first image I stamped. The next time I'll start with the embossing!!! And do the edging and the tone on tone stamp afterwards.
That's what I like about this kind of cards. They are really easy to create, but they look really special because of the embossing.
The Rubber Dance stamp set "Pine Fire Yew" is perfect for this kind of cards, because you can combine the stamps in lots of different ways. I stamped my sentiment with Archival Ink "plum" on a piece of white cardstock and layered it onto the card with some washi tape that I had in my stash. Add some twine to finish your card.
The stamps I used come from this sets from Rubber Dance (image is reduced - the stamps are much bigger!)
Thanks for stopping by!
