Default WT139 Very Velvet

Velvet....that's the challenge! Warm, gorgeous, elegant, so soft...and perfect for card designs this time of year! I love adding velvet to holiday cards for a warm, cozy look. So...find some velvet and have some fun. Velvet paper, velvet brads, velvet ribbon, velvet flowers....there is lots of velvet out there in stores because it is really hot right now. Have fun with it...you can even make a project instead of a card design if you wish!

Hope this challenge is a little easier than last weeks! If you have a suggestion for a Ways to Use it Challenge please feel free to pm me...and I'll add it to my list!

Please remember to put WT139 in your keywords section and post a link back here so that we can all see your designs! Please create a new project for this challenge...thanks!

My sample: Velvet and Flowers

Gallery Submissions

Thanks for playing along in today's challenge! Have a fabulous day!

No replies yet but this will not be first by the time I finish typing! No velvet here - so maybe I will have a chance to go back and do last week's!

I think I need to make time to stamp today! I have lots of velvet paper and got some cool velvet ribbon that's about 2-1/2" wide and works in my cuttlebug *bouncing* & *grinning*! Thanks, Julia.

I seem to remember a small piece of velvet ribbon in my ribbon drawer. I'll have to see if I can dig it out after work.

I just made a card for a bridal shower using some gorgeous velvet paper. I don't know how to change the title (that is to add this challenge number). Well here's the link: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...0&ppuser=46555. Thanks for this challenge. I'm thinking about using some gorgeous deep green wide velvet ribbon I've had since the stone age for my special CHRISTmas cards. Today could be that day!
