The Gift of Christmas

Hi Bloggers.

Did you see Sue on the Heartfelt Creations World Launch last night? Lovely stamps and dies, weren't they?

I'm dipping back into Christmas today -

For the background, I popped the Snowflakes Mask onto some red card and spread some Soft White Cosmic Shimmer Texture Paste over the top. I removed the excess and put it aside to dry overnight.

I stamped the Santa from the Justrite Christmas Labels 22 Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Berry Red Aurora Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels Three Dies and inked through the die with Festive Berries Distress Ink. I cut a Spellbinders Decorative Labels 22 out of Red and threaded some White Silky Crush Ribbon through the slits in the die cut. I tied a bow using 2 lengths of the same ribbon and added a Red Dazzler.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Christmas Gifts Vintage Labels Two Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Berry Red Aurora. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels Four Dies and inked through the die with Festive Berries. I cut 2 corners out of red card using Spellbinders Holly Accents and added them to the end of my sentiment panel.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

    Fabulous Christmas card, very festive and the Santa is just perfect.
    Love the idea of pasting through the mask - I know an oldish technique but a goodie.
