Waltzingmouse Challenge 73


Hello everyone, today I have two cards to show you that I have made with my new Waltzingmouse stamps, which I LOVE, and I have plans for more cards and tags using this set....so be warned!! I am entering this card into Waltzingmouse Challenge 73 and both cards are also makes for the Waltzingmouse Christmas Card Challenges over on their forum.


For my first card I have followed the sketch from the WM challenge. The DP is by basic grey and I layered it onto kraft cardstock. I distressed my cream card with antique linen then stamped the holly leaves using stamps from the WM very vintage christmas set. I stamped a sentiment from the same set then I used my MS score board to score two lines to define the sentiment. I finished off with dark green ribbon and a bell charm.


I had some scraps on my desk from the card above and I was desperate to make more use of this set, so once again I distressed my cream card with antique linen but this time I stamped the "ho ho ho" sentiment onto it. I stamped the sentiment again with memento tuxedo black and a small flourish from the same stamp set, then I cut it out with a nestie and finally I finished off with some dark green ribbon.


Finally, here is a pic of both cards together.

Supplies
Card/Paper: Cream, kraft card. Basic Grey - Eskimo Kisses
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Very Vintage Christmas
Ink: Distress ink - antique linen. Memento - tuxedo black
Embellishments: Ribbon, bell charm
Tools: Sewing machine, trouvaille, nesties, MS score board
Thanks for looking x
