W&W World Cardmaking Day Blog Hop!

Oh Hello everyone,

Welcome to Winnie & Walter’s World Card Making Day Blog Hop! 

You should have come from the gorgeous Rubeena Naz‘s blog. Don’t worry is this is your first stop. I will list all the designers participating in the blog hop towards the end of the post.

For the blog hop today, I have a Christmas card. For the cards I stamped and created a plaid background using W&W’s Scenery: Stripes. Here is the card

I have used Delicata Black shimmer and Gold shimmer inks and MISTI to stamp my plaid background on red card panel. I left this panel to dry over night as they are pigment inks. Since the plaid background is gorgeous on its own, I wanted to keep my focal point as the sentiment. So I white heat embossed the sentiment from Merry & Bright with Evelin T Designs stamp set on vellum and adhered on the card front. I then adhered this panel on a red card base. I then added some gold, metallic red and onyx sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to complete my card.

Stamping the plaid background is easy with MISTI and also get an even coverage of inks.  Hope you like my card. Your next stop is to the talented Miriam Prantner‘s blog.

And here is the list of all the designers participating in this blog hop.
