The Play Date Cafe - Happiest Of Holidays


   Welcome to this weeks challenge at The Play Date Cafe! This week we have a beautiful, soft color combination:

Mountain Top, Icy Blue, Snowflake

We also have a fantastic sponsor this week:

Cricut Cartridges


To create my card I used the Wplus9 stamp set "Iconic Christmas" .This set is just so pretty! I stamped and fussy cut out the trees, and stamped the snow/stars background in a triangle shape. I didn't want to over-do it by stamping the pattern on the entire card. Now, one of my favorite things about this card is my embossed background! Creating it was a fluke...I was trying to die cut a piece of burlap ribbon, but my metal die just wasn't going to cut it. But, much to  my surprise, the burlap left a beautiful impression on one of my card stock "shimmies".  I was pretty excited!  So now if I want to emboss just the center of my card stock I will use my burlap ribbon! Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you will play along with us this week at The Play Date Cafe!
