Okay...I'm so sorry it's been so long since I've posted. I've been busy creating. I've just finished making 180 Thanksgiving cards for my parents to send out to their clients. It has consumed a lot of my time.
Here is a hybrid card I created using MDS. Can I just say...I LOVE MDS for card making!!! I used the Christmas Lodge stamp set on MDS and made it slightly bigger so it would fit in the oval that I embossed around. I took my Very Vanilla card stock to Copy Max and had them printed 4 to a page. Then I off-centered an oval mat (for a 4 x 6 picture frame) that I bought at hobby lobby and stuck it to the embossing folder. I ran some Champagne shimmer paint across the embossing folder, ran it through the Big Shot and voila! Though you can't really see the shimmer paint in the picture, it DOES make a difference in person. I'm sad to say another element that does not show up in the photo is the amazing Dazzling Details that I ran across the snowy rooftops. Again, it's simply beautiful in person.
The sentiment is from the same set. I cut a 1 x 4 in piece and stamped the sentiment in soft suede. I punched the corners and daubed the sides. Then I ran some soft suede ribbon behind and attached. I just love the clean and simple look of it. Please, let me know what you think!
