The 9 Days of Christmas - Day 3 - Debbie

Welcome to Quietfire Design's 9 Days of Christmas - Day 3!
If you've been following along, you'll know we have a wonderful way to share these new stamps with you during this event.
If you are a subscriber to Scrapbooking.com you will have seen Judi Kauffman's Holiday Headstart article published Sept 1, 2013. In that article each designer created three cards of increasing complexity. We will be continuing that theme for all 9 days!

Each designer has created
  1. One "quick and easy" card - in a style you can make multiples of, but nice enough to send out to your friends.  Basically; cardstock, stamp, patterned paper.
  2. One "a little more" card - the same card as the "quick and easy", but adding some embellishment or more complex.  This one would take a bit more time or cost a bit more to make.
  3. One "over the top" card  - Enough said!  This would be an heirloom card, something you'd keep, frame, display every year - perhaps something with a removable ornament. For hand delivery or shipped in a box.

  10. I love the colours you have used! What a great idea to come off the card a little and to add textured elements with the die cuts and torn papers...brilliant! I wouldn't have believed that a sentiment could be brought to life so well, they are beautiful stamps! TFS!

  18. How interesting that without the flowers it was lovely but each one added a new dimension - thanks for reminding us that simple is lovely but just a little extra makes it wonderful!

  19. Debbie, your cards are beautiful... just beautiful! Wish I had a thesaurus handy as that is not a bold enough adjective, but the best I can come up with just now. The colors are inspired-- none of the anticipated red and green here! I think what then caught my attention (although I had to puzzle it out for a moment) is your use of an oval die-cut for a sentiment that begs for a circle. Lovely, eye-catching pop. Once again: Beautiful!

    Best Wishes,
    Mary
