I figured it was time to start using more of what I have (which is what I hope to do with all the cards I shall be working on in the next few weeks)
Both of these cards are bigger than the usual 4.25 x 5.5 that I make. These are 5 x 7's. The one on the right I had finally used a stamp set that I think I got in 2012 in the Cardmaking and Papercrafting that I get from the UK. Ok .....I know...I'm a little slow!! I should have used this ages ago..it is so Darn Cute! I put "Dash" marks around both solid white mats because I really didn't like how plain they looked.
The second card I used some white shimmer paper and a Anna Griffin embossing folder. The Merry Christmas paper was a sheet from a Christmas paper pack from Hobby Lobby that I picked up a few years ago. I wasn't thrilled with the stamped image though. I like the image just not the ink. The red would not get dark enough and I only had clear embossing powder and that only made it shiny. The card is passable though.
Well that's it for now. I know I didn't go into too much detail here so if you have any questions just ask and I'll get you the answer. Till later
