Merriest Christmas To You!


This card is one that I taught in a class at the store last fall. I loved it so much that I decided to share it with you here.

The background is red cardstock stamped with Castaways ink using the Winter Berries stamp from Penny Black. I love the look of it, almost a bleached effect, and it matches the main image.

The focal image is also the Winter Berries stamp. I colored on the rubber with Tombow markers then spritzed with water using my JudiKins Fine Mist Spritzer .

The sentiment is Penny Black's Merriest Christmas . It was stamped with VersaMark Ink then embossed using JudiKins Malachite embossing powder (which I seem to be out of right now). I didn't realize that until just this moment. Oops!

I hope you all have a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend. I plan to get some stamping done, so be sure to check in for new projects.

Until then.........
