Oh my, the holidays are fast approaching! It's not too early to start making your Christmas cards. Close to my heart has a great stamp of the month for October called Christmas Tunes.
I used one of those images in a Stamp of the Month Card Swap I participated in. Here's the card I created.
I didn't have the actual Christmas papers yet when I created this so I used some of the Enchantment Fundamentals papers and I think they worked just great!
It's not easy to capture on camera but the "ornament" image is stamped on shimmer cardstock. I started out with plain White Daisy cardstock and colored over it with our Clear Shimmer Brush. Once that was dry I stamped the image and colored it in with our Shin Han markers.
It's a fun effect and very pretty in person. Also, instead of using the bow image that came with this stamp set, I used our new Thin Cuts Ribbon Border and cut just the bow portion out of our Red Glitter Paper. I love how it sparkles along with the Silver Glitter Paper accent in the background.
I hope you enjoyed my card and are inspired to hand make a Christmas card yourself. I will be using some of the other images in this set for more cards this year.
Thanks for stopping by!
