The holiday season will be here before you know it & for those of us who are card makers... it's time to start thinking about all of the cards that we'll be sending to family and friends. I have some tips and tricks for mass producing cards on the Paper Crafts Connection blog today if you'd like to check it out!
Once a month, all of the Go-to Gals like to get together and feature a product or collection that we all really love... and today, we're featuring stamp sets from Basic Grey's Nordic collection by Hero Arts.
Each Go-to Gal will be giving away one of the stamp sets from this collection, so make sure to visit everyone's blog for your chance to win!
As soon as I saw the Happy Holiday set, I knew it was the set for me! I love anything with a Scandinavian flair & this set makes my heart go all pitter patter! The cross-stitched heart & sentiments are so cute & I love the homespun feel to it all!
To give my card a little subtle texture, I crumpled up some tissue paper from a sewing pattern and glued it to a piece of cardstock.
This die-cut paper from Studio Calico reminds me of one of my grandmother's quilting patterns. I stamped the circular image from the set above into the centers of the die cut paper & then added machine stitching to really enhance the quilted appearance.
I inked a couple of veneer houses & embossed my sentiment. To add a cozy snowy feel, I die cut a piece of white felt using a square scalloped die & then trimmed it to size.
So... are you ready to start thinking about your holiday crafting projects? World Card Making Day is this Saturday (October 1st) & it's a great way to get a jump start on your holiday card making!
