12 Cards for Christmas #7 - Festive Overlays

Festive Overlays

Yes I've got round to using both my Stamptember and Overlay stamps by Tim Holtz.

I watercoloured the holly on the side edges using distress markers, cut some stamping card using the stitched circles and stamped the smaller Santa and wreath and then embossed the sentiment over them. With a little more stamped holly and distressed edges they were then mounted on coloured card again cut with the next size up of the stitched circles and assembled.

So there we have #7 of the 12 I'm promising. Have you found any that you are using for insprration to make some cards of your own. I would love to know.

#8 is coming tomorrow.

I missed the Stamptember set, and have resisted the Overlays so far... if I were a seasonal card maker I can see I'd want to snap them up. But I'm not sure I'm ever going to get to grips with the handmade card business. I'm so full of admiration for those who do, and this series of designs is providing incredible inspiration for ways to make it happen.
