I had to pick my oldest up from work this morning so instead of going back to bed like I normally do(I work nights and don't get to bed until 4am, I'm not a bum, LOL) I sucked it up and just stayed up, which gave me time today for some crafting (although I'm sure I'll be paying for it tonight at work, lol).
I started with an Early Espresso card base and layered some Very Vanilla and Real Red on top of that. I embossed the Real Red with the SU Snow Burst EF. The banners were created with Candlelight Christmas(retired) DSP, I love this paper and bought a few packs from the clearance rack, it is so pretty! I sponged the edges of the banners with Real Red for a more cohesive look.
The sentiment is from the set Welcome Home and was stamped in Real Red and then I fussy cut it and popped it up with dimensionals. I'll be making a total of 5 of these cards, I'll get them finished tomorrow.
My inspiration for the layout came from the latest sketch at the Clean and Simple Stamping blog.
