Silent Bells

>> Wednesday, December 21, 2016

Sadly, my New Year's resolutions all fell by the way side for the 50th year in a row.  The one about getting all my Christmas cards done early and mailed out BEFORE Christmas didn't work again - even sadder is that I KNEW it wouldn't work when I made the resolution.  I am going to make it again next year because I am an optimist when it comes to resolutions AND I have a really good plan this year - I am joining a monthly Christmas card group.

Since I am still making Christmas cards for this year, here is my latest:

For some reason, when I was making the card, I had in my head that the sheet music stamp was Jingle Bells and not Silent Night Sheet Music.  That is why there are some Holly Jingle Bells the middle of the main panel.  I tried to cover up some of the words with a sentiment panel using the Small Merry Christmas Greeting, snowtex, water distressing, stenciling and sponging.  I still like how it came out and it makes me laugh when I think about it.  Wonder if the recipient will notice?  LOL.

I stamped the Bells in Versamark and rubbed chalk over it to make the image softly appear.  I have learned to love my chalks again after learning this technique. 

Hope your Christmas cards are all made and sent!
