Christmas cards are definitely my favourite to make - I love using all my Christmas card supplies - the products are so great, and just when you think that you have everything that you could possibly need, there is a new release!!! I also love that it is a time where you can use crazy amounts of glitter and bling on your cards without them seeming OTT - and that is exactly what I did for the card that I made for the Merry Monday Challenge:
I started with a kraft base but I wanted to give the illusion of some snow so I fingerpainted using some Picket Fence paint around the edges. I liked it but I decided that it wasn't enough so I pressed the edges into my versamark pad and used a Snowflake Tinsel embossing powder to give it a little bit more impact ('tis the season for glitter after all!). The stockings were fussy cut from a piece of 12x12 patterned paper and coated with a generous layer of Icicle Stickles (more glitter!). I added some Lawn Fawn twine which I shaped using some Multi Medium and a pencil, and I finished off the card with a die cut sentiment cut from some DCWV shimmer cardstock (you can't see the shimmer in the photo but it is there in real life).
I think that this card checks almost every box on the bingo card (sorry - no punch or buttons) so I will link it up to the Merry Monday challenge.
