Christmas Card Making

Hi,

What a busy time!  I started making my Christmas cards quite a while ago and I have gradually completed them in the lead up to the season.  I bought a beautiful stamp from Woodware this year with the song lyrics "O Little Town of Bethlehem" on it and a view of the town.  I began by cutting some card just slightly bigger than the stamp, then using a tissue I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink Wild Honey to smooth across the card.


This created a nice antique style to the card and it was on this that I then printed the Bethlehem stamp with Archival Ink(which actually was a little mistake because it did bleed a little later when adding colour with my promarkers.)



Once coloured I backed some card with a lovely red print paper and attached this on top.  Then my final touch was a lovely golden yellow ribbon.


I was quite pleased with the finished result as I am not the best card maker.   Ah well, off to complete all those other Christmas jobs now....

Bye for Now
