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.
