25 Days of Christmas – Card #10

From home to home, and heart to heart, from one place to another. The warmth and joy of Christmas brings us closer to each other.

Hello again!

I thought because I had shown you one of my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack cards yesterday … I would share another with you today. I did follow a colour theme for this class – 1 card of each design in Marina Mist, Blushing Bride & Pear Pizzazz. This card however (for the Blushing Bride sample) … needed a little extra depth in colour for the stamping … so I used Regal Rose ink for this card instead of the Blushing Bride.

The stamping on the background for this card needs to be done FIRST … before you do the embossing with the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder. The body of the dasher image has been inked with a marker and then some using a sponge dauber some platinum shimmer paint is added to the antlers before stamping. A few pretty rhinestones on the antlers to add some bling … a little spritzing & sponging and pretty Blushing Bride ribbon finishes it all off beautifully!

I remembered after I had done yesterday’s post … that I had prepared an instruction sheet with step by step instructions for my class girls to use on the day. I thought I would add that here … as a bonus help for creating this card. (I have gone back and added the instruction sheet to yesterday’s post, too!) All the measurements & extra details can be found on my card recipe, below! Even though this looks kinda tricky … this really is an easy card! Truly! Hope you are having a great day. C U tomorrow with the 3rd card from my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack. Hugs xxaxx Oh … and here is the card in the 3 colours …

    Dasher, complete with bling in the antennas, is so pretty!!, and with the embossed background as well, this makes such a pretty card!
    I hope you are slowing down in preparation for Christmas, it is hard to beleive that the kids have just a few days left of school for the year.
    Thanks so much for sharing.
    Cheers, Gabbi
    Andrea adds: Thanks for all your lovely support and encouragement, Gabbi! Yes … only 2 more days of school (after today!) Where has that year gone??? Hugs xxaxx

    That petals a plenty is getting a workout… and so’s my purse… honestly it will be woefully empty by the end of your 25 days! Great inspiration again!

    Andrea adds: Giggle … sorry Sonia! I will try and put you off buying anything more. I think my card for Sunday will do the trick! 😉 Will pop by your blog asap! Hugs xxaxx


  3. Lynda says:

    I am with Sonia…..LOL!!! The credit card is already wearing thin…..and sadly Dasher will not be getting a gurnsey this Chrissy…..but I so love all of these cards that you have put together. Thanks for all the hard efforts and putting together the pdf’s. I really appreciate it. I only just noticed the stamped verse u’neath Dasher (oops my bad”). Dasher is just so very regal (esp in rose…and mist….and in pear I guess!!!) Keep ’em coming darl. ooxx
    Andrea adds: Yes … the phrase doesn’t show up well in the sunny photo. It is a lot clearer IRL. Thanks for noticing though! Poor Dasher. I don’t think he will ever be in the toss basket … always a place for dasher! 😀 Hugs xxaxx
