My Last Christmas Card For a While...

This card was pretty easy to make (my favorite kind). Using a rectangle Coluzzle I cut a rectangle out and then the frame, discard the thin frame. Stamp the outer portion of the panel with the swirl image by Great Impressions with VersaMark and emboss with champagne powder then color in the leaves with a green marker. Stamp the rectangle with the aged paper stamp by Paper Inspirations using latte Adirondack ink. Stamp the Christmas saying (one of four stamps in their clear stamp Christmas set) in the center with VersaMark and emboss with champagne. Stamp the left side with the floral stamp (from the same set) in warm green ColorBox chalk ink and lightly sponge the edges to all pieces. Tie the edge of the frame with ribbons, glue pieces onto a dark green card and apply red circle stickers from Stampendous.

Okay now I will give the Christmas cards a rest for a while, the next cards I post will be cards made using Twinkling H2O's so be sure to stop by again soon :) Have a great weekend!
