Christmas Card Using CTMH Frosted Paper Pack
Hello friends. Happy Holidays to everyone. I have been creating Christmas cards. I am still working on CTMH Frosted Cardmaking Kit; but wanted to share a card I created using the CTMH Frosted Paper Pack. I love this paper. It is so gorgeous in person.
I wanted to create a card for my son and his family with a buck silhouette; because they all hunt deer in deer season. My grandson got one this year; but not sure about his mom or dad. I couldn't shoot a deer; but they eat the meat all year long. I found this stamp with Stampin Up; so I decided to get it and another one with sentiments and a dove. These two were my first stamps to try with Stampin Up.
I thought their Clear stamps meant they were like our CTMH stamp sets; where you can actually see through them when stamping; but I found out they are the thick red rubber stamps. I realized they say they are clear because they actually attach to the clear blocks. I am spoiled with being able to see where I am stamping and had a few challenges with these. I had trouble stamping straight; but that is because I am used to the see through stamps. LOL! They are very pretty stamp sets and I really like them.
I have been buying Spellbinders die cuts and really having fun with them. I used both the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge and two different Spellbinders dies. I love combining the different dies with the CTMH Cricut cartridges. It makes creating so much easier with both. I was following Mojo Monday Sketch; but I think I made a mistake and it was supposed to be a little different than this; but included it anyway; since it was the inspiration behind my card. I hope you enjoy my Christmas card.
This inspired me; but I didn't quite do it right. I thought the paper was all the way across in my mind and then realized after I glued it that it was only supposed to partially cover the area.

Die Cuts - Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge (sentiment base and outside image)
