Holiday Elegance

My husband asked me to make some custom Christmas cards for a few of his clients. It took me a while to think up a card design, but he really liked how they turned out. It was my first time using transparencies and now I am hooked.


The swirl stamp, paper and greeting are from Stampin' Up! The snowflake is from Jolee's. I looked through all my Christmas stamps and I couldn't find one that said "Merry Christmas," so I used this one and it seemed to do the trick.

I embossed the greeting with silver embossing powder and it came out great.

I stumbled upon your blog by accident. Beautiful cards. What ink did you use to stamp on the transparency?

Alyssa said...

Thanks Liz...

I used Stampin' Up's White Craft Ink. It's pigment based so it goes on kind of thick and takes a while to set, but if you use the textured side of the transparency (for ink jet printers) it should dry just fine.

Stunning! Wow!

Thanks for the answer, Alyssa. I thought that you might have used the white SU ink. I love that ink.

Absolutely beautiful! I am a HUGE fan of handmade stationery & really like your work. Do you have an Etsy or EBay store? Happy New Year to you & yours!
