Thursdays with Lindsay

Good Morning Everyone! I hope you're all doing well.

Lindsay has another fabulous Christmas release for you today - I love this set! It has so many beautiful Christmas Ornaments and a wreath. You're definitely going to want this in your digi-stamp stash. Visit Lindsay's blog here to see it in detail and snag a freebie.


I really wanted to keep this card simple. I used up some scraps of one of my favorite Christmas papers line - Figgy Pudding. Love this paper!! I swear I will use every sliver of this paper - I love it that much. So I went with circles. Can you tell? LOL

I am still trying to figure out how to print a perfect circle, so far I'm still struggling. But I imported the circle sentiment and then layered the wreath over that. And also printed another wreath. Did I tell you that embossing is truly possible with digi-images? I printed the images on glossy white paper (this will only work with ink jet printers) and then sprinkled clear embossing powder on and then heat set. It works beautifully!


I rather hoped that a close-up would show you that I really did heat emboss. I colored the image using Copics and then layered the wreath with pop-dots. This is a really simple card and very easy to make several of if you're mass producing.

Thanks for stopping by - don't forget to visit the other team members that I am certain will have many more Holiday ideas for you. They are linked in my side-bar. Enjoy your day.

I don't know how simple this is, girl! Looks like you did a lot of cutting and you are a whiz with scissors! You certainly make it look simple, but I would probably make a complete mess of it! Love that wreath! I'm dying to get my hands on it, too.
