A Simply Stamped Christmas Card

I am back with another card for my Christmas Card Workshop!

This one was created in a moment of inspiration taken from the Frosted Workshop on the Go Cardmaking Kit that I had so much fun with over the weekend.  The card is ONLY stamped images on the card base.  That's it.  Nothing else except my sparkle pen...have a look!


I used the tree image from the Frosted Cardmaking Kit for the lovely row of trees.  I stamped each set of trees in New England Ivy Ink twice before I re-inked, using the first and second generation images to create an illusion of depth.  LOVE that technique.  I also ADORE this sentiment from the NEW Mary and Babe My Acrylix from the Holidays from the Heart Gift Guide...I stamped it in Cocoa.


Now for the grand slam...this is the image that takes this card from awwww, to YES!!!!  The star is also on the Mary and Babe stamp set.  I used my Bamboo Ink to stamp it and then traced over it with my Stardust Glitter Pen.  Suddenly, the row of tranquil trees stands at attention in the night as they see the star for the first time announcing His birth.  This is probably my favorite card this year so far!


 What do you think of adding a strip of Bronze Shimmer Trim to the bottom?  ;)


I KNOW!  I couldn't decide either!  Thanks for popping in today!

My local peeps can make this card at my Christmas Card Workshop on November 8th at 7pm and the 9th at 10 am.  Who's with me?  :)
