A Christmas Card For You

I want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas!

This is one of my Christmas cards.  I love for my cards to share the true meaning of Christmas.  The Nativity image and both sentiments are older unmounted stamps from my stash so I am not sure where they came from.  I usually make a lot more, but between a neck injury in a car accident and then a recent bout with strep, I just wasn’t as productive this year.   Hopefully that will improve with the new year.

I started this card by using the Triple Stamping technique with the two layers of kraft cardstock.  I stamped the Pine image from Sparkle N Sprinkles new Toyland Bear set several times with Versamagic White ink and heat embossed with SNS’ Winter White embossing powder

The top layer was removed and I used Spellbinders’ Heirloom Ornament die to cut out a window.  I ran a Versamarker along the inside edge of the ornament window and the outer edge of the kraft piece and added SNS Golden Sparkle EP and heat set.  The sentiment was heat embossed with SNS Detail White EP in the lower corner.  This was popped up with foam tape over a white layer with the Nativity scene, heat embossed with Golden Sparkle EP, centered in the ornament window.  This was all added to the kraft card base.

I added a sentiment on the inside, once again heat embossing with Detail White EP.

I hope each of you has a wonderful, blessed Christmas.

Merry Christmas,

E. Marie
