Tonight’s Christmas card uses a very old and well used cheap shop foam stamp for the lights. The tag is an old Stampin’ Up set. They have been coloured with Tombow markers. I added glossy accents to the lights.

It is that time of year and I have been busy making some Christmas cards. This gift card is one of them. I just love white on white any time but especially at Christmas.
The top tag uses a texture paste background onto which I added Memory Box – Quinn Flourish die and a Kaisercraft embossed tag. White Wink of Stella added some extra shine to the die cut and paste snow dots. So shiny IRL.

I had some left over card from when I was playing with my Brusho powders, so I decided to use them for this card. I splattered some gold paint to give a bit of extra interest.
The dies are from Bo Bunny Lovely Leaf and Winnie & Walter ‘The Big, the Bold and You Cutaways.

On this card I was playing with my Prismacolor pencils on Kraft cardstock.
The flowers are Altnew’s Spring Daisy set and Mama Elephant – Birthday Wishes sentiment. IRL the sentiment is very pretty with a little shine, as it is stamped using Brilliance Lightning Black ink.

Thanks for being so supportive
I had lots of fun playing with my Brusho colours and came up with a very colourful piece which I have used as a background for this card. I gold heat embossed Penny Black ‘Soft Whisper’ . I feel its abstract leaf patterns really play well against the background. It is finished with a butterfly from Mamma Elephant and a gold die cut sentiment mounted on a vellum strip.
