Tis The Season #35

Tis the Season! 

Today I am sharing a Christmas card. That's right I am starting early to get way ahead of the craziness the holiday brings when it comes to getting Christmas cards sent out. 

There is a brand new challenge starting today at Tis the Season Christmas Card Challenge.

The picture is our inspiration to create our card and I chose to go with the colors. 

I embossed the candy canes with white embossing powder and then used Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers to water color all around them. Some parts turned purple but I thought it looked really pretty. Next I embossed the greeting in liquid platinum embossing powder on to a piece of vellum. The 2 panels are die cut using a frames from a Mama Elephant set that I just love!!

I wanted to tie in the greeting somehow so I inked all 4 sides of the scallop frame with versa mark and then poured some of liquid platinum embossing powder around all sides and heated with my heat gun. It turns out beautifully! 

I finished off the card by adding some sparkling clear sequins around the water colors. I attached everything to a piece of whisper white card stock from Stampin Up to make a top folding card. 

Hope you were inspired and can join us in this challenge. Getting ahead sure does feel good.

  1. This is a very pretty card. I know what you mean about getting a jump on next years cards. I try to do that every year. I prefer to make them right after Christmas because #1, everything Xmas is still out. And #2 you have fresh ideas that you wish you would have used before Christmas. Have fun.

    1. Thank you Teresa! We think just alike! I want to get it out of the way and not have to get crazy a few weeks before!


Thank you so much for your comments. Hope you will come back soon!
