I love quick and easy cardmaking. And I love Chocolate Chip as a neutral colour to build a card around.
This card is simple stamping with only one image, the sleigh from the Wandering Words stamp set . This set also has an image for Valentines Day and for Fall, so it is a set you can use alot. See it on page 16 of the Holiday Mini.
I love the Tempting Turquoise paired with the Chocolate Chip. It really makes the card pop. But it just needed a little more embellishing so I added a Playground button with a clear Rhinestone brad in the center. Thread the prongs of the brad through the button hole and fold the prongs down. If needed, trim the prongs a bit with scissors so the button sits flat. Next, I glued a piece of Chocolate Chip ribbon from the Masterpiece Ribbon Originals down bunching the ribbon on the left side. To get this look, put down a strip of adhesive and then loop the ribbon and tack down. Don’t you love the scallops on this ribbon?
