Although I’m not quite ready to say au revoir to my Autumn stamps just yet, when I saw this week’s sketch for the Freshly Made sketches challenge, I wanted to create a Christmas card with it.
I pulled out a couple of my older Hero Arts Christmas stamps and got to work! I stamped the tree background image with distress oxide ink and then embossed it with clear powder. I masked off the white trees and then blended a mix of regular distress ink and distress oxide ink. The sentiment is from a wood-mounted set. I love my clear stamps, and the convenience of the MISTI, but sometimes you just can’t beat those wood-mounted stamps can you?! After I had embossed it, I even used a circular punch to cut it out. Totally retro crafting session today! Anyway, I mounted it to a gold circle and called the card done!
Thanks for stopping by!
What a beautiful card! I love that background of trees! So pretty! Love the gold embossed joy! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
