Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

I went shopping in my mom's stamp cupboards yesterday while hubby was fixing her computer. Hee hee! I saw this beautiful snowy image (Stamp Oasis) and I knew I had to take this home and play with it. I inked this up with Night of Navy craft ink and poured Irridescent Ice embossing powder (Stampin Up!) on top. A quick touch of the heat gun, and wow! This is just gorgeous. I don't think Mom is getting this stamp back. Hehehehehe!

I used A Merry Little Christmas (from Cornish Heritage Farms) for the sentiment at the bottom. I stamped it with Gold Encore ink, covered it with Gold Glory embossing powder (Stampin Up!) and hit it with the heat gun.

As I was tying the ribbon on, I looked at the heat gun. Why not? I hit the ends of the ribbon with the heat gun as well. That's how I got those curly ends.

Have you started on your Christmas cards yet? I think I'll make some more of these and have them ready when December comes around. :-)

Stamps: snowy trees image (Stamp Oasis), A Merry Little Christmas (Cornish Heritage Farms)
Ink: Gold Encore, Night of Navy craft
CS: Night of Navy, Whisper White, Brushed Gold
Other: Irridescent Ice ep, Gold Glory ep, retired narrow gold organdy ribbon

I was admiring your Christmas card on SCS this morning, and so I was thrilled to get an e-mail from you through the technique junkies group I joined today. You do BEAUTIFUL work, and I absolutely love this card! Thanks for sharing.
