This is the last but one Christmas card that I have to show you – if you haven’t made yours by now then you’re really leaving it til the last minute!
These cards use the Hearts Come Home stamp set. It’s available as a bundle with the Hometown Greetings Edgelits dies – buy the bundle and get 10% discount. See my next post for the Edgelits.
This is a simple card that looks great nonetheless. I die cut a circle from the Stiched Shape Framelits set and stamped in a house and trees from the stamp set. Not forgetting Santa of course!
Then I added a silver or copper circle around it and put that on Whisper White mat that I had embossed using the Softly Falling embossing folder.
Add a heat embossed sentiment and you’re done!
A little tip regarding the ink pads. My Real Red ink pad has always been so juicy that I’ve rarely used it. Well, I got fed up with that, what’s the point of having it and not using it? So, I ran the open pad across my grid paper to soak up some of the ink, and now it works like a dream!
So, if your ink pads seem a little juicy – if the bubble when you use them – try getting rid of some of the ink.
My next card also uses the Hearts Come Home stamp set with the matching edgelits.
