This card design was cased from Andrea Walford, a Canadian papercrafter and also from Patty Bennett, a fellow-demo in the USA. I combined both their ideas into this one card. The new Snowburst Embossing Folder in the Holiday Mini is my new favorite. I used Baja Breeze to run it through the Big Shot. Then I used White Craft Ink to rub over it and sprinkled with Iridescent Ice EP and heat embossed. That technique was from Andrea. The technique from Patty is that I cut out a laser-cut doily from the Flirtatious Specialty Designer Paper using the Whisper White side of the doily and attached it with 2-way Glue Pen to the front of my card. Then, I used the new stamp set Stitched Stocking with Night of Navy and punched it out with the new Stocking Builder Punch and attached two Dimensionals on the back to adhere to the front of the doily. I used a Rhinestone on the center of the snowflake on the stocking. I also embossed the cuff, heel and toe of the stocking with 2-way glue pen and Iridescent Ice EP. I stamped “Season’s Greetings” from the set Many Merry Messages. I also used the Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon and tied the bow using the fork technique that I learned from You Tube.

Hi Stampers, Thanks for visiting my blog today. I thought I'd find time to post some of my fall cards I've made before I start posting Christmas cards. This is a card I made using the rock and roll technique. I inked up the leaf with Peach Parfait ink and then I inked the edges of the same stamp by rolling the edge of the stamp in Cherry Cobbler before stamping on the Very Vanilla cardstock. The base of the card is Cherry Cobbler and I stamped Happy Birthday on it from the set Bring on the Cake. On the single leaves, I applied Versamark after cutting them out and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder and attached them to the front of the card with a Dimensionals. I love these two colors together and hope you do too.
