Winter Wonderland Week #5 Christmas Cracker
Here is my Winter Wonderland Challenge. This week you had to make a Christmas Cracker. I used my Nicole Heady stamp set called Snowfall. I used 3 different colors of ink to stamp the different snowflakes from the stamp set onto 12 x 12 white cardstock. The inks I used were Close To My Heart - Aspen and Outdoor Denim, and I used Encore Ultimate Silver Metallic Ink. I stamped in the triangle pattern. I scored the paper 3" in on both sides with lengthwise diamonds which allowed the paper to come in so I could tie ribbon. I used 2 colors of ribbon, a white embossed shear ribbon and a metallic ribbon to match the metallic stamp. I embellished with 2 Prima flowers in blue on either side. Simple, yet elegant.
