A Damask package...

My final entry into the 365 Cards Challenges for the week is this little Damask package. I have two lovely damask elements in this card. First, I ran a piece of Whisper White card stock through my Big Shot, using the Damask plate in my Stampin' Up! Backgrounds I Texturz Plates set. It adds a subtle richness that the photo doesn't quite capture. It is also necessary to experience in person the flocking detail that is part of the Christmas Cocoa Specialty Designer Series Paper that I used. This white damask pattern on the red paper is actually raised and flocked, making a rich texture to touch. Finally, to top off the textures of this card, I chose the silky Whisper White Satin Ribbon to tie it up like a Christmas gift. To make it all stand out, I chose Basic Black card stock as the body of the card.

Stampin' Up! Supplies:

Stamps: None!

Papers: Christmas Cocoa Specialty Designer Series Paper, Whisper White and Basic Black card stocks

Inks: None!

Accessories: Big Shot, Stampin' Up! Backgrounds I Texturz Plates, Whisper White Satin Ribbon

I hope your Christmas is wrapped up with lots of special joys! Thanks for your visit!
