First Christmas


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.


Ingredients :

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!
