It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

Hi Everyone! It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Well, it has for quite awhile in the stores! Do you have your Christmas decorations up yet? Mine are going up soon! I want to show you a Christmas card I made using the Just For Fun Stamptangle Christmas Tree and Gift Cube stamps.

I like making non traditional colored Christmas cards at times. I started with blue card stock and flicked white Gesso over the card with a paint brush. I wanted to use acrylic paint, but I did not have any white. I like the texture that the Gesso gave. The tree was stamped with Versa Mark ink onto a marbled background I had in my stash. White embossing powder was added and heat set. I did the same for the gifts and stamped on purple card stock. All the images were fussy cut and adhered to the background. I then added some white rhinestones and a bow.

Please join in the new challenge over at the Just For Fun blog! We would love to see your creations and you might even win a prize!

This month we are making it easy since we have 2 themes to choose from - Christmas and all it entails or Winter.  The choice is yours!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoy the Christmas season!

Great card! I love the color combo. The gesso on the base is a great idea, I bet the texture in real life is really neat! The bow is perfect! TFS!
