Happy Holidayth DT

Hi, How is everyone doing? I have a fun Christmas card in two colors for today. I came across this stamp set when I was shopping at Joann Fabrics. It's so cute I had to buy it and do a card right away. I get so excited when I come across something that gets me inspired. I will even wake in the middle of the night with an idea. Do you ever have them happen to you? Its so funny because I find that I won't remember the ideas in the morning....Well, here's my card. I hope you enjoy it.

  • I started with a Piece of red and white striped paper cut to 5" x 7" and adhered it to the front of my card.
  • I then adhered white card stock cut to 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" to the center of the front of the card.
  • Then I cut red card stock to 4 1/4" x 6 1/4" and adhered that to the center of the card front.
  • The stamp set is Santa's Workshop L-1266 from The Rubber Cafe. I stamped it onto water color paper with black dye ink.
  • I used Time Holtz Distress Markers to do the water coloring.
  • After the water coloring was dry I cut the piece to 4" x 6" and adhered it to the center of the card.
  • The Sentiment came with the set. After the ink dried I traced it with a Barn Door Distress Marker.
What a quick and easy card with great results. This stamp set is so much fun! There are other pieces included that I will use for a future card. I will be able to use this set for years to come.
