This is my favorite of the Christmas cards that we made this year! This uses the Dasher stamp set on page 208 of the Idea Book and Catalog and the best part is it's just $8.95! Dasher is such an elegant stamp (and Decor Elements hostess item for that matter) and he made a perfect Christmas Card!
We first stamped Dasher using Chocolate Chip Craft Ink on Whisper White cardstock. Then, we sprinkled a combination of clear embossing powder mixed with Iridescent Ice and heat embossed. This gave us a little bit of sparkle but really let the color show through.
Then this card is layered up using Old Olive designer paper, the other half of the Mistletoe Ribbon Originals and the Christmas Cocoa Specialty paper. This specialty paper is really fun, the piece we used here is a real red base with white flocking in the design. It's really fun! In fact, I think I'm going to have to put in one more order for myself to get a bit more of this to use for my Christmas scrapping!
The "be merry" is from Warm Words, on page 141 of the idea book and catalog. We stamped the greeting in Real Red on Whisper White and punched out with the modern label punch. To get the red backing, we used the Magnetic Movers and Shakers die (p. 201) with Real Red Cardstock and the Big Shot. It's a pretty easy card and it was a real hit with my stampers this year!
