Kinkade Sneak Peek

Today I have a little sneak peek for you. This is the latest release from the Thomas Kinkade line at Cornish Heritage Farms called Graceland Christmas. It will be available this Friday (9/25).

I wish you could all see this card in person because it shimmers and shines all over the place! I stamped this beautiful image onto Curious Cryogen White cardstock which has a slight shimmer to it. It is such luscious paper and I love to use it on holiday cards. To capture all the fine details of the stamp I used Versafine ink in black onyx. I did consider coloring it at first but was so smitten with it in black & white that the only thing I added was Stardust Stickles. Again, it is hard for the camera to capture it, but the rooftops and trees all have the extra sparkle of Stickles. The white panel behind the image is more Cryogen White embossed with the Cuttlebug Snowflakes folder. It did need just a splash of color so I added a red satin bow to the corner.

On a side note, the font information on the recipe card can be found on the side bar of Michelle Wooderson's blog here. Just scroll down a bit to find it.

Thanks for visiting!
