Gina K Preview Day 4

Hello!!! Tonight is the final night of Gina K previews before the big release tomorrow (Thursday) night!
I worked with Blessed is the Season for tonight's project. I thought the images and sentiments would be PERFECT to create a holiday greeting card. Because my oldest child has relatives who live far---I thought this would be a great idea for the holidays to send them a greeting from her:
I used some red hot cardstock and added a black and white photo. I embossed* the sentiment along the side of the photo (do this first before adding the photo!) and then stitched along the edges of the picture.
I punched the snowflakes and added a fun smaller snowflake I created by embossing the emblem design in the set in white on red cardstock. Then, I punched through to get a very cool design on my snowflake. I added a red button and some silver cording.

(*You can find all the products you need to heat emboss images HERE.)

Next, I created a decorative vellum envelope that would be a cute topper for a gift. I embossed the dove image and cut around it before punching a hole and attaching it to the ribbon. I stitched the sides of the vellum so the card slides in and out easily with a shift of the ribbon:

For even more samples with the stamp sets being previewed tonight, check out these designer's links:



We'd also like to invite you to attend our Release Party tomorrow night (Thursday) starting at 7 pm central on StampTV. There will be challenges, contests, and more samples from our designers on all the new stamp sets being released this month. See you then for all the fun!

Thanks for stopping by!
