It’s another Christmas card today! This one is a little different from my usual style. Anytime I’m making projects for a stamping challege, it makes me step outside of my crafty comfort zone a little bit, which is a good thing! Today I’m participating in two new challenges – Pals Paper Arts and the Paper Players. I used the Pals sketch below and turned it on its side for today’s card. The Paper Players challenge was a ‘clean and simple Christmas card.’ I thought that worked well with the sketch.
Here is the Your Presents Christmas card that I came up with.
I stamped the presents onto white cardstock and then cut them out with my snips. Then I used Crystal Effects and painted a light coating over top. Once that dried, I put on a hefty coating to give the presents the appearance of being glass or acrylic. You can see it a little better in the photo below.
I hope I get some pretty presents like these for Christmas! Maybe if I’m good Santa will bring me something special!
Don’t forget that I’m going to have some awesome Black Friday deals next week. Make sure to sign up for my email list so you get all the details! If you’re planning to place an order, use hostess code NA6AZJPU and I will send you a free gift! Even better, sign up for stamp club and you will get free projects and free stamps!
Those packages are so cute and a great idea for the trio of embellishments. I love the glossy look of the Crystal Effects over them! Thanks for joining us at the Pals Paper Arts this week?
