November CTMH Festive Friday Blog Hop

Welcome to our November CTMH Festive Friday Blog Hop. You should have arrived here from The Sassy Scrapper - Theresa Miller. If so, you are on the right path, but since this is a circular hop you can start anywhere and just work your way around (you will find a list of all of the stops at the bottom of this post).

Today I am sharing another simple card I made. I like elegant, fancy cards, I just never seem to make them. The idea is loosely based on one of the layouts we did at the Fall Album Retreat.

To be certain it stood out against the Kraft background I stamped the focal flower with Goldrush twice, but I only stamped the leaves once with first generation ink. I also stamped the envelope flap to dress it up a bit. I used first generation ink and overlapped the stamping. I would not stamp it more than I did because I would be afraid that the colors would start to get muddy.

Here is what the Colonial White card base looked like before I added the Kraft cardstock layer. I stamped the Colonial White card base with first and second generation ink so the edges that showed did not look too stark.

The ingredients I used to make the card: 5 1/2" X 4 1/4" Colonial White Cards & Envelopes, Value Pack (X1410), 12" X 12" Kraft Cardstock (Z1375), My Acrylix® Happy Autumn Stamp Set (D1550), Desert Sand (Z2118), Goldrush (Z2123), Olive (Z2137) and Outdoor Denim (Z2140) Exclusive Inks® Stamp Pads.

Thank you for hopping with us today. I hope you are getting some great ideas for your holiday cardmaking and paper crafting. Your next stop is Scrappin' with Ash - Ashley Denny.
