|Love this picture so much!! My long-haired cats are the same way in the winter. They barely realize it is snowing and they are so insulated the snow hardly melts when it hits them.|
I haven't had a chance to play along with Jo's Christmas Kickstart Challenge for several weeks, but I managed to get creative and make something for her Scandinavian Holiday theme.
I used a variety of stamps from my Christmas stash, but most are from a Memory Box set. These stamps are not specifically Scandi, but I hope I got the look. I am entering the Simon Says STAMPtember Memory Box Collaboration Challenge with this card, too.
I knew I wanted to do a Black and White color scheme. But while I was at it, I did the same stamps on green and also reversed the black and white elements for a mostly white card. Which is your favorite?
I really like the dramatic black background and the subtle texture that heat embossing adds. Maybe I am weird, but I love running my fingertips over embossed images!
Supplies used include:
Memory Box - Making Spirits Bright stamp set
The Craft's Meow - Rustic Greetings stamp set (retired)
Inkadinkadoo - Holiday Assortment #60-30026 (retired)
WOW! Embossing Powder - Opaque Bright White Regular
