Christmas Lodge Sketch

There was a great sketch that I saw here and I could see immediately how to use it – and this isn’t quite it.  But it’s close.  My imagination saw a card a bit lighter than this – does this ever happen to you?  I made it up twice – one with the white square and one without. 

The Mica flakes are so much fun.  Above I used my Two way glue pen to adhere them and below  I used Crystal Effects. 

Stamp Sets – Christmas Lodge
Card stock – Soft Suede, Whisper White, Neutral Paper Pack, Early Espresso
Ink – Soft Suede
Etc – Petals O Plenty embossing folder, Modern Label punch, 2 1/2 circle punch, circle scissors, Quilted Early Espresso ribbon

Enjoy!  Hugs, Fran

Casing the Mini

On the front of the Holiday Mini is a beautiful card using the Christmas Lodge stamp set.  At first glance it looked to me that the pinecones and gorgeouse Quilted ribbon appeared to be tied to the card.  Now I realize it’s the wrapping for the package – not the card.  So here’s my take on the card. 

The card base is textured Sot Suede – a beautiful, beautiful card stock.

I stitched around the image and added jewels – which kind of look like brads in the photos.  Then I realized that the Holiday Mini used Confetti or Natural card stock – so I spritzed the Very Vanilla with Cherry Cobler!  That’s one way to fudge around a design! 

I love this sentiment – it’s from Snow Swirled.  It goes perfectly with Christmas Lodge.
