Greeting Card Christmas

I am in love with this new set. Greeting Card Kids is a new set in the new Stampin' Up! catalog. This set has four stamps; Christmas, Halloween, Valentine's Day, and Back to School. The little kids are precious and I strongly suggest that if you don't already have this set on your wish list, add it.

This card is one of the ones that we will be doing in our Second Annual Christmas Stamp Camp. We have three demonstrators each doing two different designs. This camp is for those who want to get a jump on their Christmas cards and also want to give handmade cards.

I don't remember where I first saw this technique, but I love it. You take your scallop oval die and run it through the big shot with a piece of chipboard. You can use the inside oval for another project. For this you only need the scallop piece and the outside piece. Take your card stock and place it inside your Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder. Layer your scallop oval on top of the folder and run it through the big shot with the two cutting plates on top and bottom. What you end up with is an embossed piece with the middle oval bare. I sponged over my piece with Real Red to get the petals to pop out. I colored this little girl with by blender pens and markers, then added glitter to her trimmings (you can't tell in the photo but she really shines!).

Thanks for visiting and see you next time. If you need any help with this technique, ask and I can send you step by step directions.
