Winter Skies Christmas Card

 Hello everyone, I hope this finds you well and enjoying the holiday season.  I have a Christmas card to share today, not too difficult to make at the last minute, if you need a few more.


I started with an alcohol ink background on Yupo paper.  It doesn’t show in the photo but it is a bit shimmery. I stamped right over top with Archival ink with the gorgeous tree background stamp.  

I then heat embossed the sentiment on some vellum. This is a brushstroke style script and I like the way it looks heat embossed.  

I added some tiny punched snowflakes to finish off my card.  I applied this with some clear glitter glue.  Again these didn’t show up well on the photos, but I found it to be a nice way to glue small things, as the extra glitter on a Christmas cards just adds something to the whole thing!

You can find these stamps in the I Brake for Stamps store.

Christmas Wishes sentiment

Trees Background stamp

My best to you and your families this holiday season!
