Two More Holiday Cards



I love kid art. So when my six year old son handed me a picture on which he had fashioned a tree out of triangles made entirely of layers of lined notebook paper ooutlined in green and yellow highlighter I was thrilled. Even more than usual because I knew I was going to scraplift his design. So here it is and he gets a design credit (thanks Luke). The other card is made by ironing wool felt over some of my Inque Boutique stamps to emboss it. Some tips here: don't use the acrylic felt-it doesn't work. Don't use polymer (clear) stamps-its not as heat resistant as rubber. Wider, chunkier designs work better. (The buttons are also stamped with IB stamps then just embossed with white embossing powder. The papers are Love Elsie, World Win, BG Figgy Pudding, Reminisce, and Scenic Route).
Hmmmm...I wonder if polyester felt would work?
