Totally Gorjuss was to use something that was new to your stash. I had ordered some Christmas stamps from Gina K right before Christmas and did not have time to really try anything. She demonstrated the technique I used on this card at Stamp TV. She used clear embossing powder for her trees. I decided I wanted to try Embossing Pearl in Silver from Ranger. I wanted my trees to have a little sheen. I did not get Christmas cards out to everybody, so I thought this would be a cute New Year's card.

Make it Monday
Totally Gorjuss was easy does it. For this card I cut the image with a spellbinder die and used that template to make the colored part. I then stamped my words in the colored area. I then stamped the nativity and mounted it and used it in the lower corner. I also added a bit of distress ink around the outside to give it more of a vintage look. I just don't like plain white edges. The challenge at Quirky Crafts was last minute Christmas. This card was simple because I waited to the last minute to make it.

This was my Paper Temptress post last week. My daughter is due to have a baby in February. It is a boy. We are getting ready for the first baby shower. They tell me the theme is elephant and peanuts. This is the card I came up with. The base of this card is the Gray Leather . The wonderful texture in this cardstock was perfect for the base for an elephant card. The accent is Basis Gray. I stamped on this rich gray color with white ink and I used the Cover a Card Gingham stamp from Impression Obsession. The elephant image was stamped on Cryogen White. The ribbon I added is Satin Reversible Stitched Edge in black /silver. I colored the image with colored pencils. I just got a new die for making the pop up in the center. I just love the look. The hearts on the inside are the Basis Gray and Basis Pink. The inside message was stamped on Pewter . Thought this would be perfect for my Make it Monday post this week.
