My first christmas card of the year

Hello again – and welcome back today!

I know, there’s still some time left til christmas. But there has to be the day when the first christmas card is shared. And since it’s nearly the end of september I thought it’d be okay to do that today. Ready?

I didn’t go overboard regarding glitter etc so this turned out a more simple but still elegant card.

I used some grey and ice blue designer’s paper and matted both with white cardstock. The star from the Squares, Circle and Star stamp set was heat embossed using silver embossing powder and put between the layers. A few smaller die cut stars, cheesecloth and laces in different width were added for decorations.

This is the main panel of my card. Here I stamped the Wings onto white paper and colored them in with Copics. Then I used some masking tape to cover them and stamped the Christmascollage Background over/around the wings using ice blue ink. When cutting out the background I’ve cut around the wider parts of the wings which adds a little 3D effect.

I had to add at least a little sparkle by glueing a few small silver sequins onto the background. Then I’ve stamped the smaller “Merry Christmas” from the Merry Christmas x2 stamp set on a banner from white carstock and heat embossed it again before glueing it over parts of the wings and background.

Hope it wasn’t too early for a christmas card and you liked it. See you all next month!

Hugs, Kathrin
