Pennant Parade Christmas Card

Hello again,

This post shows my second Christmas card. For this card I used the very versatile Pennant Parade stamp set. I also was excited to use my new Festival of Prints DSP Paper Stack. For the design I went to Sketch Frenzy Friday - 120712. I really like this design and I'm sure I'll use it for another card in the future. I also used the challenge of embossing that I found in Just Us Girls Challenge #166 - Technique Challenge (Embossing). I would have to say that embossing is my favourite technique. It's such a quick and easy way to add texture and depth to a card.

Here's my card:

Here are the details:

CS: Cherry Cobbler, Lucky Limeade, Whisper White
DSP: Festival of Prints DSP Paper Pack
Stamp Set: Pennant Parade, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Lucky Limeade
Tools: Big Shot, Textured Impressions Embossing Folder - Petals-a-Plenty, Petite Pennants Builder Punch, Word Window Punch

Happy stamping,
