Scandinavian Season

Hi Everyone! I hope you have all recovered from the holiday weekend. I know, for me, it was culture shock to go back to work on Monday. I was so relaxed after being home for four days. I am now really looking forward to the Christmas holiday when I will have several days off with plans only to stay home to enjoy my family and relax.

I would like to share another Christmas card with you today. This card features the Scandinavian Season stamp set which you can find in the Holiday Mini Catalog. The colors are Old Olive and Real Red and the patterned paper is from the Holiday Treasures Designer Series paper pack.

To make this card stamp the Christmas Tree in Old Olive on Whisper White cardstock and then stamp just the corner of the tree which has the flower in Real Red on a scrap of Whisper White. Trim the flower and embellish it with a Fire Square Rhinestone Brad. Adhere the flower to the tree with a Stampin' Dimensional or a glue dot. In this case, I prefer a glue dot since it will stick to the metal prongs of the brad better.

Stamp Sets: Scandinavian Season
Cardstock: Old Olive, Whisper White, Holiday Treasures DSP
Inks: Old Olive and Real Red
Other: 1/16 Handheld Punch, Slot Punch, Fire Squire Rhinestone Brads, Old Olive 1/4 Inch Grosgrain Ribbon, Silver Cord, Glue Dots

TGIF & Happy Stampin'! EdieB
