*One Last Christmas Card*

As hard as it is for me, I think it's time I stop making Christmas Cards. (insert heavy sigh here). I love to stamp for Christmas. I love the colours, the images, the sparkles. (insert heavy sigh #2 here)

I did make a non-Christmas card yesterday... it was hard to do! And to top it all off, I don't really like it LOL! I'll probably still post it one of these days for you to see just how difficult it is for me to get back into the swing of non-Christmas stamping.


So, here is my final Christmas Card. I used two new to me sets... Snowflake Spot and Warmest Regards. I started with a Whisper White card and stamped snowflakes all over the background with Versamark Ink. I embossed the background with Iridescent Ice. I then stamped the large snowflake on Whisper White... I inked it with my Versamark first and then with Bashful Blue Classic Ink (on top of the Versamark) so that I could emboss it with Iridescent Ice. I sponged Bashful Blue ink around the edges of the square and then added Dazzling Diamonds glitter on top of my 2-Way Glue Pen. I added two different sizes of bling to the snowflake. I stamped Happy Holidays on Whisper White in Bashful and sponged the edges.

So that's it.... no more Christmas cards for me.... sniff sniff. I'll miss my Christmas stamps.... but on to more colourful and spring like things for me!

Have a good one!
