Most Special Night


Merry Monday #64-Christmas card challenge

Just making one Christmas card a week will put me ahead of the game when it is time to start making Christmas cards to send out. The stress will have to be less than normal and I'll be a happy stamper.

Sketch this week:



Of course, this is Christmas Eve night and so peaceful. I made a scene with a stamp from Gina K. Designs/Holiday Cheer stamp set. The trees were embossed using VersaMark and white embossing powder. For the star, I used VersaMark Dazzle and embossed with Stamp 'N Stuff jeweled gold embossing powder.

Rest of recipe:
Paper-Stampin'Up! night of navy and Georgia Pacific white
Ink-Stampin'Up! Night of Navy
Other Accessories-Sakura gelly roll pen (on trees and snow line), EK Success star punch
