Holiday Mini Sneak Preview

I pre-ordered a few stamp sets from the upcoming Holiday Mini catalog, and this is the first card I made. The stamp set, Scandinavian Season, and its matching wheel have a very different look. I quite like it!

I used Beate’s sketch for this weekend (#56) and started with a 4-1/4″ x 8-1/2″ piece of Riding Hood Red card stock, folded in half. I stamped the star design with VersaMark ink on Baja Breeze paper, embossed it in white, and punched it out. Then I stamped it again with Riding Hood Red ink on Whisper White paper, cut out the flower and added a brad.

The Scandinavian wheel was inked up with the Riding Hood Red pad and wheeled onto Whisper White paper, which was matted with Baja Breeze card stock. Since I’m not sure yet what occasion I’m going to use this card for, no sentiment was used.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Gorgeous card! I love this set. It’s mounted, but still virginal. I didn’t get to stamp today! Hopefully tomorrow.
    Have a wonderful weekend! Big cyber hugs
