Another Christmas Card

One must get busy on their Christmas cards.  The holiday season is fast approaching and I don't have too many done.  I am afraid to count.  Maybe I should count how many I need for sure and then see how many I have.  Either I will be happy by how much I have accomplished or I will be spiraling into a deep depression.  Let's hope for the first one.



I had this sweet snowman already colored so when I saw the challenge on Merry Monday Christmas Challenge for lights and glitter, I was half way to completing the challenge.  I believe this is an Art Impressions Stamp.

I had gessoed a dictionary or book page.  I stamped in black ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I colored the image with different types of coloring tools:  Copics, Inkintense Pencils, Distress Ink.  I also used Stickles (glitter) and my Wink of Stella pen on the card.  The sentiment is placed at the cocky angle - not because I felt cocky - but because - I had red stuff that needed to be hid.  Shhhh - don't tell anyone.


I am also entering it in the Weekly Christmas Card Challenge where the challenge is Anything Goes.  This fits in quite well with that challenge.


I thought the sentiment worked so well for a challenge for lights and glitter.  Enjoy your day.  I have a dental appointment early and then going to the movie in the afternoon.  Hope to find more time to create another Christmas card - wait - Thanksgiving is coming also - I should make a couple thankful cards.
