By Request


You all know that I love to make cards and to create. I enjoy all the cards I make. But every now and again I come up with a card that people just seem to love. The card you see here has been one of those cards... and I have been asked by many people if we can recreate it. I've done it at a couple of workshops this month, and I also did it at my last Christmas Stamp-A-Stack. The colours were inspired by the Ski Slope Designer paper. Im not sure why it was such a hit. The colour? The design? If you have any clues what makes this particular card a winner, please let me know!

Stamps: Tree Trimmings (from the Spring Mini Catalogue), and Short and Sweet
Cardstock: Whisper White, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Real Red
Ski Slope Designer paper
Other accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, Large Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Choc chip wide grosgrain ribbon, Real Red and Old Olive Markers, Paper Piercing Tool and Mat Pack template, Dimensionals

Enjoy the card, and I will be back soon with more for you.

Glad to be back guys!

Hi Linda, I too love the card - might just have to case it too.

I think this is a HIT Linda cause you have used ur markers with the ornaments instead of the stamp pad as with most of the cards with this set are around...does that make sense?? I love the idea...so TFS.ooxx

Isn't it just a divine colour combination? And together with Tree Trimmings, it just -works-! Love it Linda!
