Stampin' Addict's Challenge
Paula (or Palua, as she is affectionately known to her llama-loving friends) over at Stampin' Addicts came up with the brilliant idea of recycling some of our old challenges and making a Pinterest board for us to upload our cards. This week it's a sketch challenge from early 2010.
Since the Christmas Collection hadn't seen ink yet, I decided to give it a try. I think it turned out pretty well! After stamping and fussy-cutting the ornaments, I punched a Gold Foil Sheet with the Christmas Ornament Punch to use as a mat. The Stylish Stripes TIEF made a nice backgound out of the Old Olive textured CS, but it needed something "more". Encore Gold ink to the rescue! Just a few swipes of the pad on the embossed cardstock was all it took.
This would qualify as a very mailable card, because there are no embellishments at all to hang up in the sorting machine!
