Joy to the World

It's that time again when I have to start mass producing our Christmas cards. Here's a CAS card using some of my new Penny Black stamps, All is Bright and Peace on Earth. I stamped the snowflakes on the kraft card front. I die cut a border strip along the bottom of the Authentique Festive patterned paper using Spellbinders Classic Petal Edgeabilities. I picked this one specifically because with one pass through my Grand Calibur, I end up with two strips!
I used distressed inks on the edges to add to the rustic feel of the card. I'm not very good with this technique (as you can see :), but practice makes perfect, right? Some burlap twine and button is all the embellishment I needed.
I'd better get moving as I have about 150 of these to make. I don't make them all the same as I get bored after a while. I'll be sharing the others later on. Have a great day!

  3. Really, really beautiful card, Nina! The stamp designs are so elegant and I love the detail of the border strip with the happy stripes. The rustic twine tie is the perfect finishing touch!

  4. Cool design. Love the look of the stamping directly on the cardstock.


Thank you for your kind comments.
