I’ve just made my first Christmas card for the year. Yay!!!
I am entering it into this weeks challenge at the Paper Players. It’s a Clean and Simple challenge called Bring On the Bling and I’ve certainly done that.
I don’t generally use that much bling but Christmas is a good excuse to get sparkly isn’t it?
I used silver glimmer paper and rhinestones for my bling and I embossed the sentiment with silver too.
I used one of the leaves from French Foliage to create the Poinsettia. I just stamped it 3 times with real red, moving the leaf around slightly each time before re-inking. Then I cut it out. I had seen this done before all in green to make a wreath but I decided to make it a poinsettia instead. I also stamped a few leaves in gumball green and added them to the back.
Stamps : French Foliage, Contempo Christmas
Card : real red, white, gumball green, silver glimmer paper, brights dsp stack
Ink : real red, gumball green, versamark
Other : big shot, petals a plenty ef, silver ep, rhinestones
Hopefully I’ll be good this year and not leave all my Christmas stamping till November!
