Partridge & Pears Christmas Card

by Joanne James6. December 2014 14:01

A quick card from me today for this week's challenge over at Merry Monday, where Deanne would like us to use a bird on our card:

I am sharing a card I made at one of my first Christmas card classes, which featured the lovely Partridge & Pears stamp. Here is my card:

This is one of the simpler cards that we made and I left it sentiment-free on the front, as I didn't want to interfere with the embossing folder detail. The main tree image was stamped in Memento Black ink and coloured with a selection of Stampin' Up! Blendabilities and then fussy cut and popped up on dimensionals so that it would really stand out. I love this image for a traditional Christmas card and whilst I don't use embossing folders as much as the other products in my craft room, I love the effect of this frame around the focal image.

That's all from me today - I'm off to my first Christmas party of the season this evening. Back tomorrow with my very last Design Team post for The Paper Players. My 6 month tenure has finally come to an end and whilst I will be sad to leave that amazing team, you will not want to miss tomorrow's post as we have some very special projects lined up for you! Until then, happy stampin'!

The embossing folder makes such a great frame for the tree image and your coloring is fab! Thanks for joining us at Merry Monday!
