Very Special Christmas - Woodware USA Challenge


Pin ItThe challenge this week at Woodware USA (WWUSAC38), is to create a project using red, kraft and one other color. Keeping with my Christmas-theme for my Woodware USA creations this month, I used their Christmas Labels stamp set again and chose white as my third color.

To start off the card, I embossed the card base with polka dots. Layered on top were two cardstock strips (one in red, one in kraft), that had been stamped with the holly leaf accessory stamp from the set. After stamping the label image onto white cardstock, I hand-cut it out, added some gems and adhered it to the red piece.

Just the details… (1) Placed small red gems over stamped berries, (2) Folded and adhered red CS strip so it would raise the sentiment off the card, (3) Embossed the card base and used white ink on the center strip to add more detail to the large kraft-colored area.

Great card! What white ink do you use......I love the look but my white ink smears or fades.
