A Bootiful Candlelight Christmas Card

In yesterday’s Christmas Card Stamp Camp, we made six cards… all with very unique designs.  The stamp campers loved their new cards and creations, one of which featured the Candlelight Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper and Bootiful Occasions Stamp Set.  Hope you like it too!1.bootiful_occasions_stamp_camp_august_2012

Elegant, rich card stock and designer series paper colors included Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla and Bashful Blue.stamp with early espresso ink, color fur with gel penThe Christmas boot was colored using a signo white gel pen along with Real Red and bashful blue markers.  The bashful blue marker was used to color the edge of the Very Vanilla labels collection die cut and around the bootiful Christmas boot.two designer series papers with christmas theme on cardOne of the designer series paper layers was also die cut using the apothecary accents framelit and the cherry cobbler layer was embossed using big shot machine and retired snowflakes embossing folder.use snips to separate sentiment from boots in setThis is a very mail-friendly card with the only dimension coming from bashful blue shadows and embossing… no stampin’ dimensionals were used!

I’d been debating separating the sentiment from boot in bootiful occasions found on page 50 of the big catalog.. they were together as part of the 5 piece stamp set until I designed and created this card!  LOL!  I just couldn’t justify inking, cleaning, masking to achieve a perfect punched sentiment so I chopped off the sentiments from the boots!  Not only do I now have a 9 piece stamp set, but I can also use the sentiments with other stamp sets too!

Tomorrow I’ll share two quick and easy cards we made in Saturday’s Stamp Camp!  The cards feature some unlikely products you may have missed from the new mini catalog and were a big hit at this weekends’ class too!  I hope you’ll stop back by to say hi!

I look forward to reading your comments and appreciate your online orders!

Hugs,

Sharon
