Warm Wishes

Good Thursday morning peeps!! Hope you are having a good day so far, it is beautiful here today, sun shining and warm. Just an awesome fall day! Love it!!!

My card today is a case of this beauty by WAXYO, I hesitate to say CASE because mine does not come close to her beauty, she has amazing talent, if you haven't already you should check out her gallery it is chocked full of beautiful cards, I wish to be her when I grow up!!! LOL!!!

On to my card, I started with a base card of chocolate chip and layered that with a piece of riding hood red, that I had stamped with snowflakes from the SU set Snowfall in the same color ink as card stock. I then paper pierced the edges with my piercing tool and mat pack, then made faux stitch lines with my chocolate chip marker. The trees on the center piece are from the SU set Christmas Classics and are stamped on chocolate chip, always artichoke and kiwi kiss and cut out and layered up with dimensional. I also sponged the edges with matching ink on the artichoke and with chocolate chip on the kiwi pieces. The "snow drifts" are just white card stock torn and layered. I used the stamp-a ma-jig to place my sentiment which is from the SU set Hugs & Wishes. Tied a ribbon around the top with ribbon from the Winter mini called Alpine, I believe. I really love the look of this card and might consider it for my holiday cards this year but it is a little labor intensive with all the cutting of the trees and my 51 year old eyes are not what they use to be, that's for sure!!!

Another picture of it just because!!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!!!

Your card is stunning Vicki and I think it's every bit as good as the card you cased! I love the simplicity of the lines. Very striking. Chris x
