Addicted to Stamps & More! Challenge #467

It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More!. Come play along with us. Our new challenge is

Here's my card

This was my Christmas card this past year. It was Plan B. Plan A involved stitching and some beads and it wasn't until I was getting ready to assemble the card, that I realized it wouldn't fit in a standard envelope and was probably too thick to go with regular postage. Oops! I was glad that I was able to pivot and come up with a relatively easy card to mass produce. 

I started with Simon Says STAMP's CZ Design - Chunky Christmas clear stamps. I heat embossed the word JOY with gold embossing powder onto an A2 panel of 96 lb bristol. I also heat embossed the PEACE & and TO THE WORLD sentiments on teal cardstock with gold embossing powder and die cut them with Photoplay's Sentiment Strips Etched dies. To add color to the word JOY, I used distress inks - twisted citron, peacock feathers, mermaid lagoon, applied with a paint brush and some water. I glued the sentiment strips in place and adhered the panel to a white A2 card base to complete my Christmas card.

We'd love to see your Christmas cards in our gallery.
