Christmas Candle - February Christmas Card Challenge 2011
Hello again. Happy hump day!! The short work week is already half over. :)
Today I'm sharing with you a card I made for this month's Christmas Card Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers. I found this really simple and pretty digital image from Birds Cards. After printing out my image onto white cardstock, I colored it with prismacolor markers, then stippled some Tim Holtz tea stain distress ink. Once my image was layered, I added some gold brads, ice stickles, and red gem stickers for the holly berries.
To separate everything, I die cut a strip of caramel cardstock using MFT's Jumbo Scallop Die-Namic, then stippled Tim Holtz tea stain ink over it as well. For my background, I used a Tim Hotlz brick embossing folder with red brick distress ink stippled around the edges of the card.
Well, thanks for stopping by today. I hope I've provided some inspiration for you to begin on your Christmas cards. If so, why not join the challenge here.
