Another Christmas card design for Christmas Card Sunday
I used Colorful Seasons for today’s Christmas card design. It really is an all-around, all-season stamp set. You’ll have something for summer, fall, winter, and spring with this terrific collection.
You can pick up the stamp set together with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies in the Colorful Seasons Bundle and save 10%. Now, that’s smart shopping! 🙂 And when you combine them with all the other coordinating items in the Color Theory Suite collection, well, then you’ve really expanded your options.
I started by first stamping the snowflakes in VersaMark ink on white card stock and then embossing in White Embossing Powder. The feathery soft background was then created by sponging Pool Party ink over the top using a Sponge Brayer. I used a tissue to wipe off any excess ink from the snowflakes.
It’s the first time I’ve used a Sponge Brayer, and I found it to be quite effortless and easy to use and I like the results. It’s easier to get more of an even coverage than using just a Stamping Sponge, and since I wanted all-over coverage I preferred that. As you can tell, it didn’t result in perfectly even coverage, but I really think I prefer the finish it made. What do you think? I then layered it onto a slightly larger piece of Whisper White card stock to create the white border, and then onto a Pool Party card base.
After stamping the card sentiment in Pool Party ink onto white card stock I cut it out using one of the circles in the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. You know how I feel about them. Everyone should have them! I actually feel that way about the Colorful Seasons Bundle, too.
Colorful Seasons can be used for more than just a Christmas card design. Click on the thumbnail photo on the right for another handmade card idea.
