Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Jenny Hall

Hi and welcome to the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Special Guest Jenny Hall

I absolutely love Jenny's creations so it's very exciting to be taking part in a blog hop with her and CASEing (Copy and Selectively Edit) one of her cards.

The card I chose to CASE today is this amazing Christmas card.  I love the embossed background and how it adds something special to an already fantastic card.

For my card I decided to use many of the same elements, an embossed background, colour palate and the Christmas theme.

For my background I used the diamond/square pattern mask from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and applied the Embossing Paste directly to a Basic Black card front.

While the embossed panel dried, I stamped one of the large greetings from the Carols of Christmas stamp set onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock using Basic Black ink.  I also added some holly images by colouring the stamp with Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green markers.  I then placed this panel onto the embossed card front using Stampin' Dimensionals before adhering the completed panel onto a Basic Black card base.

This was a really quick and easy card to make and I'll definitely be using the embossing paste more in my projects.

Don't forget to take a look through the rest of the blog hop.  The full lineup is listed below.

Thanks for stopping by.   I would love to hear from you so please feel free to leave a comment!
