Christmas card

I still have a lot of names on my Christmas card list so I needed a card that I could produce in quantity. I came up with this one.

It has a couple of embossing steps but the main image is just one stamp, with no colouring. The main image is from Inkadinkado, from their O Holy Night set, and is stamped in VersaFine Onyx Black. The star is from my stash and is embossed with Recollections Gold Tinsel embossing powder. The sentiment is a stamp from Michael's $1.50 bin and is stamped in ColorBox Cranberry ink and embossed with Recollections Clear embossing powder.

I thought it needed a little something extra so I went around the top layer with a Pen-Touch Calligrapher Gold metallic pen before matting it with red cardstock and adhering it to a white card base.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:


  1. The gold metallic is a wonderful touch. I love the simple design of this card. It's a classic. Thank you for sharing your holiday fun with us for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. ~Michelle
