CARDS

This month's Christmas theme makes me so happy!  This first card uses the new set Bountiful Branch.  One of my post favorite holiday images is holly and this set is absolutely gorgeous!

Altenew September Release

The stamps are so easy to line up using my Misti.  I stamped the background and wanted to keep the focus on the branches.  I heat embossed the Merry Christmas stamp, which is also available this release, on vellum to keep it clean and simple.

This next card showcases the new Evergreen die and Our Home Stamp Set...

I created a bright white scene using a few layers of the Evergreen die and then popped the house full of color in the center.

This last card showcases the Starry Night Stamp set...

I embossed the star boarder around the card front and the did a little ink blending.  I layered up some white cardstock and vellum after heat embossing the sentiment and that gold star.
