I used the same layout as my previous Christmas card and changed up the details a little bit to make it look vintage.

Tis The Season

Tis the season to make cards cards cards!!!  Here is another Christmas card that I created.  For this card I picked out the stamp first. I usually try and pick out papers first then pick out what stamp I want to use but I figured since I am doing Christmas cards it should be easy to match up stamps and paper!! 

Papers:  Stampin Up and Christmas Stack
Glue pen to apply glitter to the white part of Santa's hat, and white flocking to his beard.
Copic Markers used: 
Santa's Hat:  R39, R46, R29, R27
Martha Stewart border punch
Stampin Up punches
Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder
Christmas rub-on
Red satin ribbon and pearl sticky strip

Seasons Greetings

I just got started making my Christmas cards for an upcoming craft show in November.  This is my first card that is part of a pack of cards.  My camera is not that good but the sentiment says Seasons Greetings. I started by stamping the tree with Versamark Ink and then embossing it in white.  I originally stamped it with white StazOn but liked how the embossed image came out more white.  I then stamped Versamark ink all over the cardstock and covered it with Heat and Stick powder and Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  I loved how sparkly the card turned out.  To finish it off, I added irridescent ribbon and a bow.

Cardstock:  Stampin Up Bashful Blue and Whisper White
Ink:  Versamark
White Embossing Powder
Stampin Up Heat and Stick Powder
Stampin Up Dazzling Diamonds Glitter
Tree stamp is from Hampton Arts but Stampin Up has a similar stamp set called Lovely As A Tree
