Christmas and Anniversary

Here are a couple of cards I made last week, but never got the chance to post. This first one is an amalgamation of the challenges from

CASE Study
CAS(E) This Sketch
Inspired By

I was inspired to use a die cut and vellum with embossing over the top by the card from CASE Study. I cut out a border from Petal cardstock using the Artbooking Cricut cartridge. The colors silver, purple and pink were from the Inspired By Inspiration Photo.

Materials used:
Cardstock: White Daisy, Petal
Stamps: The Happy Couple
Ink: VersaMark
Other: Silver Embossing Powder, vellum (not CTMH), Pink Sparkles, Artbooking Cricut cartridge

The next card didn't really turn out how I'd planned, but here it is anyway. I used the sketch and sponging challenge from Friday Mashup - I sponged with white pigment ink to make it look frosty. I was going to enter it into the double embossing challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, but I was too late. I got my inspiration from Frosted Designs.

Materials used:
Cardstock: Bamboo, Chocolate, Crystal Blue
Stamps: Frosted WOTG, Scandinavian Wishes, Pair-a-Phrase, Wonderland WOTG
Ink: Crystal Blue, White Daisy, VersaMark
Other: Gold Embossing Powder, snowflake embossing folder (Cuttlebug, not CTMH)


  1. I like the touch of vellum over the heart border--wonderful take on the sketch!

  2. I like that you didn't go traditional pink or red on the first - it makes this more interesting and eye catching. And oh my .. all that gold emboss on the second... swoon!

  3. Sarah, I love the gold embossed collage look on your card. The sponging does give it a frosty look;) Things often don't turn out what our mind imagined but others just see a great card! Thanks for joining the Friday Mashup this week- please continue sharing with us!

  4. Wonderful card, Sarah! Love that Artbooking heart border!
