Another Christmas Card

Here`s my entry to this month`s Scallops theme over at Inkurable Stampers. I got to use a couple of the beautiful images from the Christmas plates of UM stamps I won last month courtesy of PaperForest Designs (& Inkurable Stampers, of course LOL) My photo came out a bit dark, but when I tried to scan, it was a bit too bright LOL, so you`re stuck with the photo : )
I`ve used the girl image from the "Christmas 2" plate from PFD, & the "Merry Christmas" is from the "Christmas 1" plate. I stamped both using Adirondak "Cabin Fever" (a mix of inks in the one pad) & covered the images with clear EP. I cut & distressed the edges, & inked with same ink. I used a white card inked around the edges with Encore ink as my base, & used a piece of DCWV metallic cs trimmed with the Fiskars Treading Water punch (love it to bits, thank you Marie), layering my image using foam tape. I added the heart brads (originally gold, but coloured with my trusty brown Sharpie) before sticking it all down, & for the finishing touch, I added some metallic embroidery floss. I still have a couple more Christmas cards to do, & I really liked how this one turned out, so I might just use the same design, but use one of the angel images instead...I also received my order yesterday from TheStampingQueen, with the new Somerset Studio magazine (which I still haven`t had a chance to read!) & they kindly added some lovely pps in with my order, so I`ll be using them shortly (thanks Barb & Ray) Now I just need to ask Santa for Time, LOL...I hope you`re all organized for Christmas...I`ll be doing the wrapping tonight, wish me luck :)

I found your blog while on my way to searching some Christmas craft ideas and I enjoyed my stay here. Your card is fabulous! I'm sure I'm gonna visit this blog more often.
