Pretty Paper...

Hello!

I've been hoarding the Christmas Cocoa DSP pack since I got it and finally I decided to take advantage of the pretty paper! Here is a super fast card I made in just minutes:



Goodies:
All products by Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Four the Holidays set
Ink: Soft Suede classic ink; Versamark
Paper: Soft Suede cardstock; Christmas Cocoa Specialty DSP
Accessories: Chocolate Chip Corduroy Buttons, Real Red 3/4" Polka-dot grosgrain ribbon, Clear embossing powder

I trimmed the patterned paper to fit on my card base and inked around the edges with Soft Suede ink. Next, I stamped the sentiment with Soft Suede and Versamark and heat embossed it using clear embossing powder. Layering the Versamark and the classic inks on your stamp lets you emboss it! I love that trick...

OK! Hope you are all enjoying your afternoon! I've been on a Christmas card kick so hopefully I'll have lots to share this week!

Thanks for stopping by!

Tessa, this is GORGEOUS! I've used almost every paper in this pack, but I've been hoarding this one too. Now I know what to do with it...after I get some brown corduroy buttons! Thank U for the inspiration! Smiles, Pam :)
