Yes, I did! I bought a Big Shot! I just couldn’t hold out any longer! 🙂
So far I only have a couple of dies and some embossing folders, but I am already loving it. I will be taking a few days off from classes and workshops over the next ten days or so, and hope that I will get lots of time to try out some new ideas, and of course, play with my new toy 🙂
So, for this card I have gone completely away from my usual traditional Christmas colours, and it is growing on me. I have used the Big Shot with an embossing folder to create a lovely textured cardstock for my background, I just love this look, and am half way through another card using the same idea, so I will try to get that finished this evening. I do think you will be seeing rather a lot of this in the near future 🙂
Stamp Sets: Snow Swirled, Christmas Classics.
Cardstock: Night of Navy, Taken with Teal, Whisper White.
Inks: Taken with Teal, Tempting Turquoise, Real Red.
Accessories: Big Shot with Embossing Folder, Ribbon from my own stash, markers.
Hope this inspires you to do something a little different with your Christmas cards this year. And stay tuned for some more cards soon.
