Christmas Cards 2013

For Christmas 2013 I made a dozen cards to send out to my family.

The images were stamped on Strathmore Mixed Media 400 series paper using Ranger Archival Ink. On most of the cards I used Tim Holtz Distress markers and a water brush. On various cards Stickles were used for enhancement. DCWV Christmas Stack Combo 2010 was used for the 6 X 6 card base and mat layers. WRMK Scallop corner punch was used for shaping the card. The glitter papers used are from Best Creation Inc. Diecuts are Spellbinders Label Four. 

The Merry Christmas sentiment that is on some of the cards is from the Tim Holtz Stamper Anonymous Christmas Memories.

Poinsettia(Stampendous); Snowman(Luni)
First I stamped the snowman, then I made a mask of him and stamped with the Poinsettia stamp.
