Silent Night

I'm SO sorry it's been so long since I've posted anything new! I held a "Cards for the Troops" event this past Sunday. I must say, I was very disappointed at the turnout! I thought that with Whiteman Air Force Base so close by that I'd have at least a few folks show up! But, I only had about 7 or so folks show up and those folks were all folks that I knew already! Oh well! I had cut paper for the 12 cards I had designed for us to make. So, I've spent all this week putting the cards together for the paper I had already cut! I'll be sending these cards to a Chaplain over in Afghanistan. They won't have to know that I made most of the cards myself! I'd hate for them to think that the folks here close to Holden didn't care about them!

Now, on to this card! I know the ribbon and the stamp set is retired. I think the satin ribbon or the organza ribbon would look really nice on this. As for a different stamp you could use....the trees from Scenic Season (#115354 - page 35) would be nice. So would the door of the Home for Christmas (#111756 - page 34) if you turned the card the other way to make it tall. The tree from Snow Swirled (#111690 - page 36) would look nice. ANY of the stamps from the Holy Triptych set (#110370 - page 36) would look nice. See? Just because you don't have the stamp set or whatever that I use doesn't mean that you can't copy the card if you like it! Look in the catalog for something that will work! Or, write me and I'll help you find a set that will work!

Now, here is what I used to make this card:

Stamp set: Silent Night

Cardstock: Whisper White, Night of Navy, Brushed Silver

Ink: VersaMark, Night of Navy (for the inside sentiment)

Other: 3/8" white organdy ribbon, Top Note die, corner punch that I can't remember the name of but it's retired, silver embossing powder

All products made by Stampin' Up!

  1. SO pretty! I love that stamp set and it's gorgeous done in silver embossing on that dark background. So sorry about the poor turnout for your card making day. Beyond a bummer. Wish I could have been there. My weekend was hectic (I was exhausted by the end of it) but it was good. Good to be with family.

    Love your card!!!


I'd SO love to hear your comments on my projects! Tell me if you like it, don't like it or what you think I should do to make it better!
