Homemade Christmas Card 2010

Homemade Christmas Card for 2010

Today I’ll show you the card I finally settled on for my 2010 Christmas Card. Again, I went for something simple. Well, more simple than is my habit! =)

This card really is embossing and sponging on ink. And a little glitter and some gems. Really, that’s it.

First I stamped the tree and sentiment then embossed with white powder. I created a mask in order to just color the tree with green distress ink. I then used a mask to create mounded snow and sponged on blue distress ink.

I used a glue pen to add glitter to the tree and ground. Then added a few gems to look like big chunks of shiney snow. I created 80 of these this year.

My card was directly inspired by Julie Ebersole. I adore her work! She used a sparkly red bird. I did not have one, so opted to add color in my tree instead.

The tree stamp is from Stampin’ Up – most likely retired.
The sentiment is from My Sentiments Exactly.
Ink is Tim Holtz Distress Ink.
