Festive red and white
This is my cards for this week's Simply Stampin blog challenge - week 36. The theme is Snowflake Sparkle.
The stamp set I have used for the cards are 'Delicate doilies' and 'Contempo Christmas' both by Stampin' Up. I thought the style of the doilies stamps reminded me of delicate snowflakes. By using the red and white colour scheme I felt it gave it a festive feel.
For my first card (above) I stamped the doilies first with a clear VersaMark ink pad. I used red WOW embossing powder to heat emboss the stamped design. In the gaps I stamped the smaller doilies with a Real Red ink pad from Stampin' Up. I cut the design into three pieces and mounted them onto red card. I stamped the doilies onto the card blank with the Real Red ink pad. To finish I add a strip of ribbon. The greeting stamp is from the 'Contempo Christmas' stamp set.
My second card (above) I heat embossed the doilies images again. To finish this card I added a ribbon bow.
