Spotlight On: Penny Black – DAY 5

Note: This is my second post for the day. Take a look at the card I made for the Lily Pad Challenge please click HERE.

Where did the week go?! I can’t believe it’s already over! I had so much fun featuring Penny Black this week and reading all your comments ! So I have decided that this will happen again the first week of November featuring another favorite stamp company. So stay tuned!

Today I am sharing an easy to make card. These kind of cards are a must for Christmas when you need to replicate the same one too many times.

In fact I just used two papers. One with pattern for the background and one solid to emboss my image. Add pearls and shimmer spritz and you are good to go!

You can enjoy the video her or on HD in my YouTube Channel. Don’t forget to scroll down and enter your name in the giveaway! Good luck and thank you for visiting!

  14. What a beautiful card! I love the paper you used, too. I have never found a card that I could mass produce for the Holidays. Your video really helped me. It showed me the steps to take, I just need to find the right stamps to use!

    Thank you so much!

    I am running out of adjectives to describe your work. What a great idea. I don’t know if the back of the base paper was white or not, but one thought I had, if it is, was to not put a card underneath it and just write your Christmas not on the back of the card.
    Bo matter what, it is a Beautiful card!
    Thanks for being so inspiring.
