A Damask Christmas

Hello!  Did you all have a nice weekend?  It has been cold and windy here this weekend and I'm sad to say that I am already ready for Spring, LOL!!

I wanted to share another card with you.  This came together pretty quickly and I really like how it turned out!


I love, love, love damask so why in the WORLD it took me so long to order PTI's Damask Designs, I have NO IDEA! 


I just really like this color combo too!  I used this photo from Jay Gee's Nook Challenge #2 for inspiration.


Cute huh?  You can go so many ways with this!  I took my color cue from the photo and went with the "elegant" look of the doily.

I also based the card on the CPS Sketch 197 (I did take a few liberties with this sketch):



Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you had a great weekend!

Supplies (all PTI unless noted)

  4. Very elegant card Jen. The way you have stamped the damask with the chocolate ink on the edges really adds lots of extra detail. Thank you for joining us at Jay Gee's.

  7. Wow, Jen! I really need to give some inky love to my damask set. Haven't used that in ages. Anyway, wonderful card! I particularly love how you darkened the edges for that extra vintage feel.
