I am way behind on posting Christmas cards. This year I am trying very hard to actually mail cards out! Last year I got a call from Aunt Betty saying the last picture she had of the boys was from 2006! I got in trouble! This card is so simple and really pretty. The secret is stamping the swirly and embossing with clear EP. Roll over the embossed image with the brayer. Wipe away the excess ink and trace along the image with a darker marker. It really makes the image pop. I brayered with Bordering Blue then used the same color marker. The ornament is stamped with the Delightful Decorations stamp set and punched with the punch, then attached with dimensionals in the hole on the front of the card- so it kind of pops out of the front! Check back for more cards in the coming days! They are made- just not posted.
Merry Christmas!
