Come to Bethlehem

Today's color challenge at SplitCoast is to combine Real Red, Old Olive, and River Rock colors. Not a very difficult challenge but I often spend way too long trying to come up with my project. Today I was determined to finish it quickly and here it is! Sometimes you just have to make it and not look back!


I'm enjoying the look that dry embossing gives a stamped image. I used the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and the Big Shot for the image and the card base.

Tying a bow? Remember to measure 2 1/2" times around what you are tying.

Challenges are a great way to improve your stamping ability and just keep you stamping. Google "card challenges" or something like that and you will come up with a couple every day to participate in! You'll also see lots of great ideas.


Have a great week!
God Bless,



Recipe:
Stamps: Come to Bethlehem
Ink: Old Olive
