Silent Night

>> Monday, August 3, 2015

Happy 1st Monday of August. I cannot believe how quickly the summer has flown by! Pretty soon school will start back up, fall will be here and then Christmas. Which means it's time to get started on those Christmas cards and avoid the rush and stress of last minute creating! With that in mind...

This was really a rather quick and simple card to create. I started by making a mask for the ground area and then sponged on three shades of blue ink to create the night sky. Once the inks dried, I stamped the Silent Night greeting in VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with detailed white EP. The small Nativity Scene was stamped with Memento Black ink on white CS, colored with Copics and die cut with nesties. I layered it and the main panel on green CS, added the sheer navy ribbon and attached everything to the white card base. I hope this and the other Christmas cards you've seen here on the blog is inspiring you to start creating those Christmas cards!

Be sure to check out this week's challenge to "Cause a Scene." We'd love to have you play along.

Thanks for stopping by today.
