Ok did I really need to make another Christmas card this year .... to be truthful the answer has to be a big NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mine have all been posted for this year .... and besides Christmas is only 1 day away now LOL, today is Christmas Eve downunder in Australia! However when I saw the sketch for this weeks sketch challenge that Iheart2stamp has on her blog .... I just couldn't help myself but to use this new image I received from Rubbernecker Stamps on Friday.
Even though I ordered this stamp earlier in the month I didn't intend to use it this year as I knew my stamps wouldn't get here to around this time .... but it was one of those stamps that when you see it you just have to have ... I first saw it on Jeanne's of Inky Paws blog and thought it would be a great stamp to use for my daughters next year.
I stamped the main image onto white card using black ink and layered this onto red card .... I used my ticket corner punch to do the top corners of the red layer only and then layered this to olive card. I used my paper piercing mat & tool to create the piercing to the top corners.
The background was created using the star background from MFT's Icing on the cake set .... I used my markers on the stamp so I could get there red & green stars .. this is a little tedious but was worth it to get the multi color effect.
I also used my markers to my verse which is from Gina K's punch word set ..... I used my nestabilities to cut the layers for the verse.
I decided I wanted two colors of ribbon on my card so I used my thin olive grosgrain ribbon and my wider red grosgrain across the top of the card.
