Christmas card #2

Hello Crafers!
I made this card using my newest set from Stampin Up.  This is such a beautiful set.  My previous post was made with the die-cuts that match this set.  There are so many possibilities!  I am still undecided which card will be my main Christmas card this year.  Although this is a nice card I've rejected it for mass production because there's just too many layers.
I really want to make something that has fewer layers and has a focal point that pops.  Unfortunately,  this monochromatic card just isn't doing it for me.  I probably should have used red ribbon. I think I have it figured out with the card that I will post tomorrow.  I'm short on the embellishment so I can only make 10 of them.  Kind of a bummer.  So, I'll fiddle around a little more and see what else I can come up with.  I will be using the same great charcoal glitter card stock from Core'dinations though.  I wish you could see how beautiful the glittery card stock is.  I'll try to get a close-up with tomorrow's post.


  1. I always find monochrome cards difficult, I always want to add a 'pop' of a different colour! But your card is so elegant, the dark card mats look really sophisticated! Thanks for joining in at Dream Valley
