If you are sending out handmade cards this year, I’m guessing they are all already made, (unless you’re like me, and the photo-cards you ordered are still sitting in a pile on the dining room table, waiting to be addressed and mailed out… *insert guilty face here*) but here is a final Christmas card for your viewing pleasure:
I created the “noel” mat with my cameo silhouette, and stamped the Precious Remembrance ornament at the bottom. The ornament hangs on by a string (actually, a wavy snowdrift image) – this creates some visual interest going up the card. I didn’t want the wavy line interfering with my “n-o-e-l” letters, so I masked them off before stamping. After coloring parts of the ornaments in shades of brown and red, I gave the whole mat a bit of texture an impression plate.
A last little detail was to add glossy accents on the ornament stars. It’s such a fun way to add some extra wow without being too fussy.
Have a great weekend, all, and happy holidays!
