Merry & Bright with Essentials by Ellen

Good evening friends!

It's rainy and dreary here in Georgia so I took the opportunity to make something festive and fun. I had an idea of a card that I wanted to make after seeing a card made recently from a crafty friend, Laurel Beard. You can find her blog post here. She created an adorable Christmas card using the Bokeh Dots from Essentials by Ellen.

For my card, I used my Bokeh DotsMerry & Bright and Brushstroke Christmas stamp sets all from Essentials by Ellen. I also used inks from Avery Elle and Hero Arts to create the colorful dots.

Once I had everything stamped the way I liked them I stamped the sentiment from Brushstroke Christmas using Versafine Black Onyx ink.

I used my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter brush marker on a few of the dots and on the sentiment. You can't see it in the pictures but it really is beautiful. I went through all of sequins and picked out matching colors and scattered them around.

I attached the card front to a black notecard to create a top folding card and the rounded the top and bottom with my corner rounder. This is one of those cards that turned out better than I imagined it in my head and those are the best kind!

Thanks for stopping by. Products used are listed and linked below. Have a great night!
