Another Christmas card ready to mail

This time of year I find myself making a Christmas card here and there and then use those to send out to friends and family. This year is no exception. In fact, I have a little gift bag I throw all of them into so I can be ready when it comes time to mail them. This one will be added to the stash.

This is a sketch challenge on SCS. I wanted the sentiment to be the main focus for this card, so stamped it onto the real red cs with versamark and embossed with white. I also added a little touch of dazzling diamonds. I used the ticket corner punch on all the corners before adding the white dot border with my signo gel pen. I added the red heart brads and poopped it up. The white layer is stamped with the sprig from Peaceful Wishes and white embossed, again adding some dazzling diamonds for a bit of shimmer before cutting with the nestie rectangle. The red layer is embossed with the cuttlebug folder, Textile Texture. That may be my favorite/go to folder. It is so versatile and lovely. I also used the ticket corner on that layer and added the white heart brads. btw, thanks to Judy for those brads! Hmmmm, I wonder how many Christmas cards I have now. I'll have to count.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
