I NEVER, Never, never, make Christmas cards in the Summer. I can't get into the spirit of the holidays when it's 90+ degrees outside. This is the first time I've ever made a Christmas card at this time of year. I loved Julee's sketch #12 for the Anni-VERVE-sary.
I used an embossed resist on the layer with the background stamp. I stamped the large background stamp with white pigment ink on white cardstock. I embossed it with clear embossing powder. I used a brayer to apply Cranberry Crisp ink on top of the image. I wiped away the excess ink with a paper towel.
