10 gals, sitting around a large dining room table, (11, if you count the little lady who had to leave the party at 8pm) with crafting supplies flying everywhere is my idea of a great night out. Plus, there are usually baked goods involved, so... YUM!
This card is so simple, but so elegant (in my opinion, right? wink.) I die-cut a christmas tree shape into a piece of cream cardstock and then embossed the negative with a woodgrain impression plate. Using an ink-blending tool, I rubbed some antique linen distress ink over the layer, bringing out the woodgrain pattern. Behind the cream mat, I stamped a piece of green cardstock with Marketstreet's vintage wallpaper background stamp. The top layer was adhered to this green layer using foam squares, to show off the 3D effect. Hanging from the kraft taffeta ribbon is a gold-embossed-tag, from PTI's holiday photo-finishers set.
I love a card that looks more complicated than it really is.
Thanks for popping by!
