Here is the card I made using new stamps and an old Impression Plate



1) Cut a rectangle of burgundy card and use the Papertrey Ink Sunrise Impression Plate to emboss the card.

2) Die cut an oval from white card and use a couple of the foliage stamps from the PTI Holiday Greens stamp set to stamp a border round the edge of the oval. Use 2nd and 3rd generation stamping to vary the depth of colour.

3) Stamp and emboss the sentiment from PTI Think Big Favorites #20 in the centre of the oval using Scarlet Jewel ink.


4) Adhere the burgundy card to the base card and raise the oval onto it with fun foam.

5) Finish off by adding berries around the card with Nuvo drops.

There is a lot of inspiration from the team over on the ABC Christmas Challenge blog, and you can link your card up there until 31st July.

Big thanks go to Helen for stepping in to host the challenge for me this month - I really appreciate your help Sweet Lady!
