Hello everyone! I have a card chock-full of TEXTURE for you today! It's also a Christmas card which uses a surprising stamp set -- PENNANT PARADE! Now, you would usually think of Pennant Parade for a birthday or celebratory card ... but for CHRISTMAS? Yep, turns out those little pennants, when inverted, make AMAZING Christmas trees. Who would have thunk it?
I included lots of texture on this little card with three different Embossing Folders. Using the Big Shot, I combined the Perfect Polka Dots, Tulip Border and Winter Flurry embossing folders. I just love the suggestion of snow that the Polka Dots add to the trees.
The color combo is a little unconventional for a Christmas card but I love that as well -- Pacific Point and Gumball Green!
The sentiment is from the Curly Cute stamp set. The trees are all stamped, with the exception of the single middle tree which is punched with the coordinating Builder Punch and embossed and then embellished with Basic Rhinestones. Please Note -- it's import to stamp all the images BEFORE you emboss with the Polka Dots.
As you can see, a little stamping on the inside of the card finishes it off perfectly!
