All week Pebbles, Inc. is sharing some fun holiday cards on the blog. Today I've got my quick and easy holiday contribution:
I knew I wanted the type to be the focal point on these cards and loved how the kraft letter stickers mixed with the red cursive ones - so I kept the remainder of embellishment to a minimum. The striped patterned paper served as a background to smooth white cardstock. I love using diagonal stripes like this because they look the same on all 4 sides of the card. (Did you ever do this with a regular stripe and it only works on the sides? That's why diagonals are best.) Here are some close ups...for this card I used a rub on in place of the red font - I used the felt embellishments on all 3 cards:
the silver stitching adds a little bling and a nice frame to the graphic elements:
Here's the one that started it all - was dying to use that felt holly:blog. Great card making inspiration there!
So, are you ready for the big day? For us, the Eve is when we entertain so I'm starting to get a little nervous. With a brand new oven in place, I'm ready for the cooking to begin. Luckily, I'm done with work now until next week. There is much to do - I hope you are all enjoying the season!
