25 Days of Christmas Cards: Day 11 "Merry and Bright Christmas"

Hi Everyone!

Today's card features various images from Simon Says Stamp and Verve Stamps. For her card, Kristina did a lot of masking; and if it isn't obvious by now, the whole concept of masking tends to be better in theory rather than practicality for me! So, instead of doing a one layer card, I decided to add some dimension to my "windows"  I created the background by using Pumice Stone Distress Ink and my blending tools on to some Neenah Solar White card stock and then measured and cut the four squares in accordance with the images I chose.


Once the squares were cut, I added stamped, colored, and cut the images and then added them to the white squares. The little Rudolph head was stamped directly onto the white square and colored with Copic Markers. I added some glossy accents, liquid pearls and Wink of Stella glitter pen for final embellishments. I traced the edges of each square with a black pen to add a little depth. Finally, I stamped the sentiment and added the ribbon/twine

As always, here is the side by side photo of mine and Kristina's. Have a great day, thank you for visiting me and I'll see you tomorrow for Day 12.

Love your card. You did a great job CASE from the other card. I like the look/dimension of the added "accents/images" rather than just stamping them. Thank you for sharing it with us at Christmas Card Challenges this week.

Stunning card! I love the layout and colors you chose for this. I was looking for some inspiration as I plan to make my own Christmas wishes card this year too. This truly inspired me. Thanks for sharing!

Hugs,
