Feliz Navidad Card
I'm loving diagonals right now.
I stamped and embossed the woodgrain pattern from Woodgrain Backgrounder onto some dark gray cardstock
It gives it a little subtle texture that I'm adoring right now.
And a touch of the rustic.
The ornament from Ornate Ornaments is also embossed and then colored in.
Embossing it makes it easier to stay within the lines. Hah!
If you ever mass produce, this is a great way to maintain some sanity. ;-)
Merry Christmas Card
For this card, I wanted to try a whitewashed wood look.
I love the clean look of white.
And so embossing the wood background from Woodgrain Backgrounder in clear just gave my cardstock some much needed texture.
It's pretty subtle in the pic but fabulous in person.
I pulled the poinsettia from Big Blooms - Poinsettia and the sentiment comes from Ornate Ornaments.
Thanks for stopping by! Waltz on over to Bonnie to see more inspiration!
