Now that Thanksgiving is almost here and I have all my cards done, it's time to get my focus back creating those cards I still need for Christmas. This week's challenge at The Paper Players was perfect. I pulled one of my favorite retired stamp sets off the shelf to use, Christmas Lodge. It's been a while since I've used it but I still love that lodge image. I also used Baked Brown Sugar, one of my favorite ink colors from days gone by. What doesn't show up in the photo is the Clear Wink of Stella sparkly snow on the rooftop of the lodge. I love the stuff but it just doesn't photograph well for me.
Stamp Set: Christmas Lodge (retired); Ink: Baked Brown Sugar (retired); Cardstock: Baked Brown Sugar (retired), Very Vanilla; Other: Stitched Oval Stacklets Dies (Taylored Expressions, Clear Wink of Stella Brush
The "Clean-and-Simple Christmas" theme I used is from The Paper Players Challenge. For all the challenge details, click the image below.
