Sleigh Ride Edgelits

I've been playing with the FABULOUS Sleigh Ride Edgelits. My "go to" aesthetic is Clean And Simple (CAS), so my first attempt was VERY CAS!

I really like it, but it just needs a little "something". I thought I'd add texture and really wish I'd stamped a greeting before I embossed, but it turned out OK.

Ink: Night of Navy, Pool Party
Cardstock: Whisper White Thick, Shimmery White
Accessories: Sponges, Fine Tip Glue, Dazzling Diamonds, Sleigh Ride Edgelits

Stair Step Christmas

While surfing the internet searching for Christmas Card inspiration, I stumbled across a card based on this one. My original card works well, but once put up on display, it sort of slides down, or collapses. I was really excited to see this genius idea from The Craft Spa. I took the basic idea and figured out the dimensions in inches. Love how these turned out. Take a look at the side view (2nd picture down) and you'll see how the back of the card is scored to make a prop for the front.

Stampin' Up REALLY need to bring out a punch for the pine branches which adorn the windows. Unfortunately, this one is contraband.

Stamps: Wonderland, Happy Scenes
Ink : Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Soft Sky
Accessories: Hearth and Home Framelit, sponges
