Blue Blue Christmas

Happy Monday everyone. Normally on a Monday I would be posting my card for a challenge I do with my CCEE Stamper friends. However with Christmas just around the corner we are taking a short break. If you enjoy playing our challenges each week ... pop on over to our CCEE Stampers blog, as we will be posting one of our older challenges for you to play along to.

Today I thought I would share some Christmas cards I created earlier in the year to send out to a few friends.

I just love the Elvis stamps that are available from Cornish Heritage Farms ... so of course when this one called Blue Christmas became available I just had to have it ... I created 3 variations for this card ... using the same supplies.

I used the snowdots cuttlebug embossing folder to create the texture on all my cards. Once I had embossed them I sponged over the raised areas with blue bayou SU Ink.


Recipe:
Stamps: Blue Christmas Elvis - Cornish Heritage Farms;
Paper: White; Blue Bayou - SU
Other: Black Ink; Blue Bayou SU Ink; Snowdots Cuttlebug Embossing Folder; Star Punch; Blue Bayou Grosgrain Ribbon; White Brads; Foam Tape
