Ho Ho Ho
My second card today was created for The Challenge. The challenge was to make a Christmas card using the inspiration photo. I loved the the Ho Ho Ho sentiment and wanted that to be the focus of my card. I found a wonderful card sometime back on Pinterest and saved it to my board but had forgotten about it until today. I wanted to replicate it but with my own twist. I started by embossing the sentiment from the My Favorite Things Grand Holiday Greetings using Versamark ink and heat embossed it onto some black cardstock using Recollections snow white detail embossing powder. I love the contrast of the crisp white against the black. I adhered that to my red cardstock and layered that onto my white card base. I punched a white border using the Stampin' UP dotted scallop ribbon border punch and punched the buttons for Santa's jacket using black cardstock and an EK Success 1/4" circle punch. Using my Nestibilities large scalloped circled dies I die cut the collar and adhered that onto the card and called this card done! Pretty simple and easy to replicate. I have to make several of these this year!
