K.I.S.S.



T.G.I.F. Peeps!

Today I have two cards to share with you. Both are made for the K.I.S.S. challenge on the Pals Paper Arts Blog. K.I.S.S. stands for Keep It Simple Sweetie.

I was very much inspired by these beauties made by Sharon Johnson.

I made my cards with whisper white and real red cardstock. I used two different embossing folders that I recently bought.



Both are really quick and easy. I wanted them to look somewhat elegant so I went looking through my Christmas Sets for some greetings with pretty font. The Season's Greetings comes from the "Snow Swirled" set. The "A Christmas Wish" comes from the "Home for Christmas" Set.



The bases of both cards are white, followed by real red and then the embossed layer. Each embossed layer has a frame that is perfect for the sentiment. I stamped each sentiment onto scrap white and then matted them with real red and attached that with some dimensionals to the base.

The only embellishment is some red organza ribbon, non SU.

Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
