Crazy for Christmas

Such a great name for a stamp set & little did I know that this was going to be my set for creating my cards when SU! offered it at 20% off but I just loved it & I'm really pleased how they turned out. I made 2 cards using the set (kinda got bored with embossing after awhile but had so many positive comments about the first one maybe I should have stayed being bored!)

Stamp set: Crazy for Christmas, Occasional Greetings
Ink: Versamark, Silver Encore, Sage Shadow for sponging
Card stock: Sage Shadow, Always Artichoke, Whisper White, Wintergreen DSP
Other: Silver EP, dimensionals, markers (Certainly Celery, Sage Shadow, Always Artichoke), dazzling diamonds glitter, sponge dauber, Stamp-a-ma jig


Cutting dimensions:
Whisper white: 1-1/2 x 4-3/8"
DSP: 1-3/4 x 4-5/8" and 1-3/4 x 3-1/2:
Always Artichoke: 2 x 4-7/8" and 2 x 3-3/4"

The second card is straight from the SU! demo website & I really loved colouring the pressies up.
Stamp set: Crazy for Christmas, Sleigh Full of Toys or Itty Bitty backgrounds
Ink: Basic Black, Ruby Red, Wild Wasabi, Bashful Blue
Card stock: Ruby Red, Wild Wasabi, Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Other: Wild Wasabi DS ribbon, mini glue dots, blender pen, Stamp-a-ma jig

Cutting dimensions:
Whisper White: 10.5 x 3 cm
Ruby Red: 14.8 x 3 cm

A really easy card but very effective, well I do hope to my friends that received one of the above & to ALL a very merry Christmas - may it be a special time spent with those you love.

I used this set for some of my cards too Karen. I love it! It even looks good uncoloured.

As one of the lucky recipients of the first card pictured, I have to say how gorgeous the real thing looks. The photo doesn't entirely do it justice. You always come up with something great Karen - thanks.
