Today I have a beautiful, quick and easy Christmas card. The background was embossed on Ivory CS with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. Two stamps from Nina Brackett's "Vintage Borders", available from Gina K Designs, was used for the design. I first stamped the strung ornaments using VersaMark and embossed with super fine gold embossing powder. Then using a stamp positioner, I stamped the beautiful border for the ornaments to hang from. The design was cut out using Nestabilities. The scalloped background was cut out using gold card stock . The card stock perfectly matches the embossing powder all from Gina K Designs. Some gold cording was wrapped around the middle of the background embossed piece and four gold brads added to each corner. Like I said, this was a very quick and easy card to make with Nina's beautiful new stamp set.
Tomorrow I will be participating in a Christmas card blog hop with many other designers from StampTV. Be sure to check back so you can get lots of ideas for your Christmas cards.
