merry christmas

Hi everyone,
I’m super excited and honored to be the Guest Designer for Stamps and Stencils’ December Challenge - It's got to be Christmas! I must confess that I love Christmas theme very much. So when I knew the theme of the challenge, I was very happy. I'm looking forward to getting Santa's warm big hug one day. The following is how I made my card. Hope you like it.

Step 1 : Use WRINKLE FREE Techinique to make the background and stamp image with Archival black jet ink. Distress and sew the edges.

Step 2 : Apply several Texture Paste over the stencil.

Step 3 : Sanding the edges of the Kraft Core Paper and sew the edges.

Step 4 : Apply Distress Ink on Kraft cardstock.

Step 5 : Stamp the Santa images and color it using Distress Markers. Cut out the images.

Step 6 : Stamp Christmas sentiment on cardstock. Apply Distress Ink on Kraft cardstock panel and stamp text on it. Adhere the sentiment to panel. Using brads as the finishing touch at the panel.

Here is the closeup.

Hope you like this card and inspirational to you. Please join us for this fun challenge and I can't wait to see your artsy project. Thanks so much for stopping by & have a nice day! 
Hugs & Love,
