My Christmas Card

The first year that I hand stamped my Christmas cards, I sent out between thirty-five and forty cards.  The snowmen were stamped in basic black ink on whisper white cardstock, and I colored in every detail on those snowmen.  I might have added glitter or puff paint in the scene also.
This year, I decided to stamp a large solid image ( the ornaments) in one color and add details to complete the card.  My husband helped cut the layers that make this card.  I sat and ran those little scallop rectangles through the Big Shot one at a time.  The rhinestone was added at the finishing of each card to reassure myself that I was making progress with this huge project.
After many samples, here is the card that I decided to send to my friends and family this holiday season.  I am already imagining the quick scrapbook pages that I can create using those large ornaments in this stamp set.
