Here is the card I made using new stamps and an old Impression Plate

1) Cut a rectangle of burgundy card and use the Papertrey Ink Sunrise Impression Plate to emboss the card.

2) Die cut an oval from white card and use a couple of the foliage stamps from the PTI Holiday Greens stamp set to stamp a border round the edge of the oval. Use 2nd and 3rd generation stamping to vary the depth of colour.

3) Stamp and emboss the sentiment from PTI Think Big Favorites #20 in the centre of the oval using Scarlet Jewel ink.

4) Adhere the burgundy card to the base card and raise the oval onto it with fun foam.

5) Finish off by adding berries around the card with Nuvo drops.

There is a lot of inspiration from the team over on the ABC Christmas Challenge blog, and you can link your card up there until 31st July.

  12. I love this card. The embossing is so smart and the foliage stamping is very pretty. Must have a go! x

  13. This is so cool!!! I love the way you stamped the little foliage around the edge like that. I need to remember this as I am terrible at using my small stamps. Great design.

  14. The rays impressed on the burgundy really enrich the white oval sentiment and colorful holiday greens. Now you've just enabled me to want more PTI products. Beautifully done, Carol. Pinning this one for future reference!
