White on Kraft - NOEL

A kitty during one of those rare angelic moments.....  :)

Hi, Friends.....

Quick post here...because we have our first handbell choir concert tonight and I would like to get most of this post done before I have to get ready.  

My card is inspired by this project over at Jennifer Grace's Frosty Festivities 2015.  One of the creative ideas Jennifer asked us to try out was to stamp a frame around the edge of a card or project.  I pulled out some ancient, but adorable, Hero Arts Christmas stamps and decided to do a very simple heat-embossed white on kraft one-layer design.  (I got brave to try this again after being pleased with my first one-layer attempt here!)

I teamed up the HA stamps with a simple NOEL stamp from a dollar rack set.  Cute!  I ended up liking this design so much that I made 4 of them.  Yay!!  I am into making small multiples this year and my little stack of cards is growing.  :)

That's all for now.....

  9. I always love the look of white embossing on kraft for Christmas and this is so sweet and cozy. Your embossed border is just perfect with this design and that cute little country angel couldn't be better. A pat on the back for using an old stamp set too because even old stamps need some love!
