The Christmas card began by stamping Stampendous Manger Scene (minus the star) in VersaMagic Aegean Blue & clear embossed. Then I brushed on Distress Inks & splattered with water. The sentiment from AJVD was stamped in Versafine Clair Acorn & clear embossed. Then I die cut the scene with the manger in the center of the CAS-ual Fridays star die. The star was attached to fun foam before it was glued back in place. I finished it off with a scored frame & added Stickles to the halo.
I've always sent a lot of friendship cards, so that's what I made for my second card. I pulled out an old paper pack with large & small dots.
November PFS Monthly challenge. I love the Delicate Wreath stamp set & had fun inking it up with Distress Inks in 2 shades of purple & 2 shades of blue.
Ribbon used to be on most of my cards, but now I seldom use it because of the added postage cost. Worth it sometimes & this beautiful gold ribbon was just what the card needed. Finished off with dots of Champagne Stickles on the wreath & a thin black mat. I'm also entering WAW.
