Yes, as of 1st September, you too can be ordering the gorgeous Stampin' Up! products that you'll see us share throughout this Blog Hop … and I'm sure you'll have seen some gorgeous makes by now if you've arrived here from the lovely Emily's blog and others before her.
For me … being a firm lover of Christmas, I had to come up with a Contemporary style Christmas Card, that I thoroughly enjoyed creating.
Loving nature as I do, I just fell in love with the Wonderland Stamp Set and the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
I wanted something a little different … something away from the Traditional Red, Gold and Green (not that there is anything wrong with this combination) … and this was what I came up with.
The twiggy wreath behind the sentiment is made from the Builder Tree Punch. I love the effectiveness that this created and you could say that it's a whole load of antlers depending upon how you look and interpret it. I know that many will find the antlers hard to use, but I just love the simplicity of them and equally the masculine feel that they offer.
I surprised myself with my decision to use Gold Foil Cardstock in circular splashes behind the sentiment. I'm not a lover of gold at all, but I really felt that the discs of gold, gave a warm gentle pop and highlight to what was quite an otherwise matt looking card. This is a great way of using up quite literally scraps of Gold Foil and tied in nicely with the gold spot Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum that sits across the bottom of the card.
I hope you like what I've shared and you see the Antlers in a whole different light now.
Be sure to check out the new Seasonal Catalogue on the Demonstrator website and draw up your wish list in preparation for the 1st September launch day. Check back here and I'll be posting a new Hostess Code at the top of my blog especially for these early orders. Assign this code at check out to any qualifying order to receive a gift from me in the post. You would be wise to order early to avoid disappointment, as its a cracker of a catalogue.
