I am so pleased to introduce my guest stamper who has designed a card for the RRBC #3 using the stamp set Christmas Lodge. My guest stamper is Denise Basile, a member of my downline, but, more importantly, my youngest sister who has discovered the joys of paper crafting. Her card submitted to Retro Rubber Blog Challenge follows a sketch using an older Christmas stamp set.
This card is intriguing on so many levels. The detail that I like the best is how the trees continue in several layers. The tree on the right is more obvious, but the trees behind the lodge continue upward into the DSP. Speaking of DSP, it has been embossed so that the dots are both negative and positive. The large tree on the right is adorned with rhinestones, but the snowflakes have pearls. A vellum panel behind the lodge provides just enough differentiation between the layers but still allows continuity. Denise provided the following product information…

Since Denise does not have a blog, please leave any comments or questions here so that she may respond.
Hope you enjoyed her project. In the meanwhile,
Have fun stamping,
