Moxie Fab Diggin on Damask

brocade-orn-2

brocade-ornament



Damask-PC-Orn

I made these for the Diggin on Damask Challenge on Moxie Fab World. I love damask everything, but decided to make my own instead of using designer paper. That way I could taylor the pattern more for the shape of my ornament. I used Layers of Color Touch of Elegance art stamp set to make all the damask patterns using Adirondak Cranberry Ink. I used Our Daily Bread designs sentiment from this month's release, Holly Tag set for the 1st & 3rd card.

Card Details:
Stamps- Layers of Color Touch of Elegance art stamp set, Our Daily Bread designs Holly Tag set
Card Stock - Gina K Cranberry Tart, Pure Luxury White, Paper Studio Brushed Gold
Ink - Adirondak Cranberry Pigment Ink, VersaMark for the embossed one (#2)
Accessories - Spellbinders Ornament Die Cuts, Ribbon, pearls and Fibers from HL, Sizzix Thin Ice Embossing Folder, Heat embossing equip.


I'm adding this to the following challenges:

Pollycraft- It is chill time -Marks Finest Papers - Holiday -One Stop Craft - Anything GoesWee Memories - Anything Goes Tip Top Tuesday - Christmas Inspired Craft Your Passion: Anything Goes Lexi's Creations: Anything goes-OSAAT- Christmas- Traditional or Modern Sir Stamp a Lot- Christmas Traditions

Hi Grace~

What beautiful and traditional Christmas cards! They are timeless, and wonderful each of their own detail! I love the material that is part of the 3rd bow. It gives the card an outdoors feeling!

I just LOVE the gold embossed paper in your second example. Grace this card is so pretty. I also am a huge damask fan. I want to find a stamp of one "damask" unit. The little group of pearls is a nice touch along with the red
beads.

If I had the opportunity to choose, I would chose the 1st of these three. I love all of that embossed white with that simple but wonderfully colored bow. I like the older reds instead of the commercial "Santa" red. I love the diecuts that you used. This is awesome.

One year, it dawned on me that I didn't know what "Noel" meant, and yet,I was singing it on the top of my lungs. I must have asked 70 or so people. I think it surprised all of us that we didn't know. This card is so pretty with the damask paper outlining the cut!

Thank you for showing us this collection, my friend. These are all gorgeous.

He IS Able,
Traci S.
