I've been busy making Christmas cards lately and this one was inspired by my Christmas tree. Yep, I have a purple Christmas tree!
I first stamped the ornaments using perfect plum, pale plum and silver encore ink and then I stamped the ornament hangers using my stamp-a-ma-jig. Once the ink was dried I stamped over the ornaments again using VersaMark ink and then I quickly sprinkled SU's dazzling diamonds glitter over them. My next step was to heat emboss the glitter. It looks so pretty in person!
Just below my stamped/embossed ornaments I scored two lines using my score-pal and then I decided to add some silver cording over top of my dry embossed lines. And finally, I sponged along the edges of my white card stock using perfect plum ink and then stamped my sentiment just below my score lines (and to the right).
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you all had a great holiday weekend. My weekend was great and I was able to get some shopping done. See you tomorrow!
