Recipe Christmas Card Series #2

Fill your Christmas Card Box - Pt 2

As I am on a mission to get my Christmas cards made earlier this year and not be chasing my tail in December I have been making myself duplicates and I am intending to create cards that will be easy to post trying to keep costs down.

Distress inks - weathered wood, stormy sky, ground espresso, iced spruce
Archival ink - potting dsoil
Embossing powder -  weathered white antiquities
Stamp sets - mini holidays, handwritten holidays 2, christmas magic
Dies - movers & shapers oval
Miscellaneous - ivory stamping card, kraft card. hessian, jute ribbon, tim holtz mini star punch, glitter card

Cut craft card to size, stamp and white emboss.

Cut pennant and mono print the stars mask with the blue dostress inks and dry. Lay the mask back over the stars and blend the groud espresso lightly over them in plaves, mist with water, remove the maask and dry.

Create the sentiment by stamping some card for the background and diecut the ovals. Then stamp the sentiment over the top.

I made three of these at the same time and for a morning's work designing as well as making it helped to increase the numbers in my Christmas card box.

If you use this card for inspiration please link to me and let me know where I can come and see it.

Happy Christmas card making.
