Wrapped in Warmth & SUO Challenge #157

Hello again,

Today the theme over at the Stampin Up' - Only Challenge Blog is All Kinds of Weather - #157! Time to break out the Cable Knit Sweaters. I'm serious. Because I did. I live in Evergreen, Colorado and I believe fall has arrived. The Aspens are turning yellow and the daytime temperature was below 60, actually I think it tried hard to get to 55. You can hear the male Elk bugling daily, rutting season is in the fall. So I'm thinkin' it's time to think warm.

My card  today features the Wrapped in Warmth Stamp set, as well as the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder. I started by using my Warmth & Cheer Washi Tape on the Card Front in a diagonal design. There are actually 5 different designs but I used only 4. The Card Front is Whisper White Cardstock. I wound up cutting the diagonal portion apart before running the remaining 2 white pieces through the Big Shot with the Cable Knit Embossing folder. I then glued all 3 pieces back together on the Card Base which is Crumb Cake Cardstock. The sentiment is stamped onto Whisper White Cadstock in Cherry Cobbler Ink and then matted onto a piece of the Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack. The little tree is again stamped onto Whisper White Cardstock in Garden Green Ink. I Fussy Cut the tree and popped it up on a 1 1/4" circle with Dimensionals. I cut the circle with a 1 1/4" punch on the same Warmth & Cheer paper. The last thing I did was to add some Green Metallic Thread under the sentiment mat and again used Dimensionals to pop it up on the card too. Wait until you see the tags I made with the same suite.

If you live in the Evergreen, Co area my next Christmas Card Stamp-A-Stack is Saturday, October 10th, from 10 am - 2 pm. You can check my Facebook page for details.
