Stamp-Off Friday Christmas Cards
It’s another Stamp-Off Friday – and this one was a really big challenge for me. We’re posting our personal Christmas cards.
This shouldn’t be a huge challenge, right? I mean, I received Susan’s & Jackie’s cards over a week ago, on the same day. Jackie & Susan are very organized and on top of things. My Christmas cards will probably say, “Happy St Patrick’s Day!” To everyone who has sent me a card, please know how much I appreciate it. I’ve gotten beautiful cards from my stampers and downline members and other friends. And one day I’m going to send them a card as well. But it will definitely be more of a “Happy Holidays” card – because it may include Valentine’s Day and St. Pat’s.
I did, however, make this card, and if I finally get the cards sent out, this will be the one. It’s simple and easy to reproduce in larger quantities, but it also has glits and shine.
I stamped the bells from Christmas Magic on Whisper White cardstock and colored them with Smoky Slate and Real Red Stampin’ Write Markers. There’s no die for them, so I cut them out by hand. I find it soothing, so it’s not a big deal for me. Kind of like watercoloring. I enjoy it.
I stamped the Timeless Textures dotted pattern in Basic Gray on the Smoky Slate layer, then stamped some smaller splatters in Versamark and embossed them with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I added some Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details over the bells.
The final touches – “Merriest Wishes” stamped in Real Red, and a little Silver Metallic Thread wrapped around the card. I love the Real Red, Smoky Slate, Basic Gray color combination.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day!
