I will be sharing the cards that I made for the Penny Black Christmas catalog.
I am in love with these images and it was a so fun to design these cards. I love to use an embossing folder to create the background. This particular one is my favorite because you can stamp in the center as I did here.
For the snowy panel I used tumbled glass distress ink then stamped the snowflakes and added white dots. Use a piece of scrap for the snow bank. I like to add a line of blue to make the snow stand out.
The images were stamped in Memento ink and colored with Copic makers.
Here is card number two. I love the simplicity of this owl stamp. The background was created the same way as the first card.
I really love subtle stamping in backgrounds.
Embossing adds so much to cards. If you don't have a Cuttlebug it's something to consider for your holiday list. What is on your list? I would love to hear.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I have been so excited to share these cards with you that I made this summer!! Have a great day and I'll be back tomorrow. Hugs, Kathy
