Fab Friday 143

August 9, 2018

The ladies at my Beachmere Class like to get a head start on their Christmas cards so we make one card each week from now until we take a break in December.  Today’s card was inspired by the great sketch at Fab Friday this week.  I am still waiting on my Holiday Catalogue pre-order so I have no new Christmas stamps, however, I have seen the Rooted in Nature stamp set used for Christmas and decided to give it a try.  I stamped the greeting from the Hearts Come Home stamp set onto the lower right hand corner of Whisper White card using Real Red ink.  I embossed the stamped card using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Real Red card.  I cut a narrow strip of Real Red card, attached an even narrower strip of Gold Glimmer paper before attaching the pieces to the card front using dimensionalsI stamped the single “Christmas” tree image from the Rooted in Nature stamp set onto Whisper White card using Shaded Spruce ink.  I cut out the image using the 2nd largest Layering Circle Framelit Die and attached it to a Shaded Spruce scallop circle cut using the same dies before attaching to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the double “Christmas” tree image to scrap Whisper White card and cut them out using the matching Natures Roots Framelits Die.  The double tree image is attached to the image circle using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card I stamped the double “Christmas” tree onto the lower left hand corner of Whisper White card using Shaded Spruce ink.

I am really happy and excited to be able to use a “non-Christmas” stamp set to create such a sweet and simple card.  What do you think, do you like it?

Bye for now,

Kris
