My first SWAP for the Portland Regionals is a Christmas Card. If you are on my Christmas Card list, some of you might get one for Christmas since I had a few left over.
For this card, I used:
Stamps: Peaceful Season
Ink: VersaMark Stamp Pad, Garden Green Classic Stampin’ Pad
Card Stock: Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Always Artichoke, Sahara Sand, Not Quite Navy
Designer Series Paper: Deck the Halls
Accessories: Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder, Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder, Basic Pearls Jewels, Decorative Label Punch
There are really no special tricks to this card. I used the clear embossing powder on the Whisper White so I could get the dove to show up the way I wanted. For embossing the ornament, I first stamped it in Garden Green and then cut out the ornament. Then I used my Versamark marker to add the silver embossing powder. Other than the time it takes to cut all the small details, this is actually a fast card to create for the holidays.
The stamp set is a Level 2 Hostess set from the Holiday Mini so you do need to host a qualifying workshop to earn this stamp set. I still have openings on my calendar for November so just call to book your show. Too busy for a traditional show? Consider a catalog show.

God Bless and Happy Stampin’!
