12 Days of Christmas--Day 7--Brocade Sleigh
I think I'm finally done with Christmas shopping! Nothing like waiting until the last minute. :-) How about you? When did/will you finish your shopping?
This is another card from one of my Stamp-A-Stack classes. Several people commented on how much easier it was to make this cards than they thought it would be. The Cherry Cobbler layer is the new Core'dinations card stock that was run through the Big Shot with the new Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder. I didn't sand mine down very much after embossing, but you can gently sand it to bring out more of the middle (lighter color) of the paper to give more contrast.
A tip--when you add the Dazzling Details to the card (the 'snow' under the sleigh) make sure it doesn't touch where you have stamped--otherwise it will run the ink!
