Today I'm heading down to Richmond for a scrapbooking retreat with Scrapdoodles!! I am so excited! I've packed way too much but I can't wait to get creative! Before I hit the road, I thought I'd pop on and share a card I created using Newton's Nook Designs new SEA-sons Greetings set:
I love the idea of a nautical Christmas! A lot of my friends love everything nautical and I'm planning a few special Christmas cards just for them this year! I created a card base out of Soft Sky cardstock and added a strip of blue and white polka-dot paper to the bottom to look like water. I stamped that cute whale onto the same cardstock and shaded him with Copic markers. I stamped, colored, and cut a hto out for him as well- this is borrowed from the Newton's Holiday Mischief set.
I stamped the silly sentiment onto red patterned paper and added some faux stitching to the top. I adhered it to my card, along with the whale and then added a few snowflake sequins for a little sparkle. Can you believe that these are from my stash? I bought them 6 years ago and they are from Doodlebug! Hee! They are making a comeback! :)
To finish my card, I added a lengle of heavy cording tied in a knot. Doesn't it fit right in to the theme? I love it!
Well, I better head out the door! I love retreat weekends!! I'll try to pop on Monday morning and share the cards from my class tonight!
Thanks for stopping by!
