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.
Stamps: Background (JudiKins), So Many Scallops
Paper: Cranberry Crisp, white
Ink: ColorBox Silver, Cranberry Crisp, ColorBox Frost White
Other: Silver beads (Michael's), Scallop punch, clear embossing powder, foam tape, circle punches

PRETTY CARD ANTHONETTE! I like it!
It is time to start on those xmas cards huh? sigh... I'm still moving my things to my craft room. I hope to be ready by the end of the week and start stamping again.
Making Christmas cards in summer makes me feel cool, so I start every July. Since I make 100 cards each year, it helps to get an early start. Stop by my blog for a peek at what I've been coming up with while waiting for the new SU stamps!
