I had a lot of ideas when I sat down to make a holiday card for today’s Extravaganza. More than I could fit on one card. So I made two, using the same stamps and layouts, but different styles. First, my clean and simple, frosted latte card. The aqua card base is stamped with Concord & 9th’s Tree Ring with white ink. Then a cool blue mug, from Lil’ Inker Designs’ Latte Love set, perched atop snowflake and stitched sentiment flag die cuts.
This version uses a more traditional Christmas color scheme of deep red, ivory, blush, and tan and texture to make the style more rustic. I stamped the same tree ring onto a craft card base with Versamark ink. I clustered a few lonely scraps and die cuts on the card and stamped a sentiment from Latte Love. Then I made my mug with Merlot Fresh Ink and topped it with fussy cut holly from Lil’ Inker Designs Festive Florals stamps set.
It’s amazing how a few small changes can make such a difference in the final product.
