Holly Jolly Christmas
Ohhh it is begining to look a lot like Christmas - yeah! Christmas is not that far away my friends. Are you ready? I am not at all. I feel like I have so much to do still. One of those many things to do is my Christmas cards. I am not even going to count them this year I am just going to do them. hahaha perhaps that will releave some of the stress not knowing exactly how many I need to make and send out. Here is a card I made today featuring the Northern Hearts stamp set. You will find this stamp set in the Holiday Mini catalogue as a hostess level 1 stamp set. Isn't it cute! I am not sure if you can pick it out from the picture but the wreath has a little shimmer to it. I put a couple of drops of Certainly Celery classic re-inker in the top of a brad container and add some drops of Champagne Shimmer Paint on top. I mixed it around with the end of a paint brush and then took a sponge dauber to apply the shimmer paint re-inker mixture to the stamp set and then stamped the wreath image on Whisper White card stock. Voila a shimmery Christmas wreath. I added the red berries with a Real Red Stampin' Write Marker after the wreath had dried. One thing I love about Christmas cards is adding sparkles to the cards. I usually always have some sort of sparkle on them. The cards are almost always embossed too. hehehe It is funny how I associate different things for different occasions.
