Merry Christmas

My poor blog has been so neglected lately! The holidays are always a busy time for people but when you work in the medical industry it's extremely busy this time of year. Work has been so crazy lately that I've not had much time for anything else. But I stayed up late last night and worked on a few cards that I wanted to share. As soon as I saw this sweet stamp from Unity Stamp Company I knew I had to have it and I managed to snag it during a big Black Friday sale so even better, right? I stamped out the truck image from the Old Traditions stamp set in Memento tuxedo black ink onto some 110 lb cardstock from Staples. I colored the image in using my Copic markers and then stamped the greeting from the same stamp set below using Versafine onyx black ink for a nice crisp impression. I cut the image out using a pierced oval die from My Favorite Things and put some foam dimensionals from Stampin' UP on it to pop it up. My card base is some bright red cardstock from Paper Studio and I layered a small strip of plaid patterned paper from the American Crafts Noel 6x6 paper pad. I took a strip of forest green cardstock from Paper Studio and embossed it using a snowflake embossing folder from The Paper Studio. I will be entering this CAS card in the Male Room Challenge and CASology weekly challenge. I hope you like it!

Love this card, I'm a huge fan of plaid.
How do you love the Staples 110 lb? I always buy mine from M's so I'm wondering how the Staples brand compares?

Amy, I love my Staples paper! It's heavy enough to use as a base for a card and I like it for Copic coloring. It will bleed through to the back but I don't do one layer Copic cards so I'm ok with that.

That certainly was a great stamp to snag in a sale. Loving your use of the traditional Chrtistmas colours too. Thanks for playing at The Male Room.

Super card! Great image - I saw several trucks laden with Christmas trees earlier in the month. Love the traditional colours you've used. Thanks so much for playing along with our Christmas challenge at The Male Room. Hope to see you again next year.
