I found this challenge that my friend LeAnne is doing and I had to join in…Merry Monday a Christmas challenge blog. I have to keep up with those weekly Christmas cards you know!
This weeks challenge is #93 Ornaments. I pulled out this lovely set from Flourishes called All That Glitters. It’s no longer available unfortunately.
I stamped the pine boughs first, stamping without re-inking so they got lighter. Then I stamped the ornament with Versamark and embossed with gold ep. I cut it out and popped it up on the panel with the string and bow that was also embossed. I used Lightning Black from Brilliance to stamp the sentiment. I sponged around the panel with Distress Ink in Antique Linen and added a bow at the top with some sheer ribbon. I used a glittery gold piece of cardstock to mat the main panel and it’s all mounted on patterned paper from Memory Box…an old winter line whose name I cannot remember.
I like making simple, easily mailed cards…especially for Christmas when there are so many to send. It’s easy to get carried away with embellishments, like bows, flowers, and bells! I love bells :) but I’m trying to stick to simple for now. Lets see how long that lasts!
I hope I can keep this up! Why not join me?
Thanks for stopping by and have a great evening!
