Something a Little Non-Tradtional
This is another of the cards I created Monday evening. I adore Cherry Cobbler, it is so rich and almost decadent feeling. I knew I wanted to make a card using "Big on Christmas", and I knew I wanted to use Cherry Cobbler. I decided to pair it with Basic Black, and it all came together. :o)
I love that this one isn't a "traditional" card, and yet, is so visually appealing. I'm not sure if you can see it (maybe enlarge the photo?), but I added Dazzling Diamonds to the S, N, and W. I'm playing around with the idea of cutting out the hat and carrot and making them three dimensional, but I'm not sure if I'm up to all that work on 15+ cards...We'll see how the time works out.
This card uses:
Stamp Set: "Big on Christmas"
Papers: Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White
Inks: Black Staz-On, and Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green markers
Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds, Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder
Now, if only it would snow here...it was almost 70 this morning. :sigh:
