Yes, I looked it up. There are 51 days until Christmas. So I have been creating some fun projects that I will be sharing with you here and there. So I have my first Christmas card to share with you today.
Recently I won a prize package from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store! The owner, Sharon Johnson, sent me a very beautiful christmas tree stamp (Merry Christmas Tree) by IndigoBlu, a 6x6 paper pad ( Joyous) from My Mind's Eye and some beautiful ribbon. You can check out The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store Blog to see more wonderful projects!! Here is my card.......
This card measures 5 1/4 x 5 1/4" square. To begin, I stamped the christmas tree image using a technique I learned back in my Stampin' Up! days. First I inked the stamp with Versamark, then inked it with red dye ink and stamped the image. I mixed together some Ranger Clear Embossing powder with some Crystal glitter and sprinkled that mixture over my image. After heat settting, I used my scissors to fussy cut the tree out. To mat the tree, I just glued the tree onto some red cardstock and cut around it! I stamped the sentiment using the red dye ink and just cut around it.
Here is a close-up.....
I'm not sure if that will be our Christmas card yet because you know its going to cost more postage. But for a select few who love my cards......it might be what they are getting!
A special thanks goes out to Sharon Johnson, owner of The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store for all the wonderful goodies. Sharon's store is full of wonderful products especially beautiful ribbon!! Thanks for stopping by today!
