Christmas Card Sunday


I cased this card out of the gallery on SplitcoastStampers. I love the simplicty of the one layer cards. I first inked up my Lovely Tree image using my Versamark and then embossed it with the black embossing powder. Then I used my Culozle and cut out an oval template. Using my brayer and Bashful Blue ink, I rolled over the oval part several times creating the sky.
The greeting comes from the Snow Swirled stamp set.
The verse from that set is also on the inside along with some Bashful Blue snowflakes!
I really enjoyed making these cards. I did have some difficutly with the embossing on a few of them, so I only made a set of 8 cards, but I think they turned out so well! I can't wait to give these ones to some special people for the holidays!
Happy Stamping!

These are beautiful Jen! I haven't used my brayer in so long it probably doesn't work - covered with dust bunnies lol!! Thanks for your encouraging words on my last post - and I'll keep your family in my prayers too!
