Peace On Earth
Do you ever fel a wee bit behind the 8 ball?
Dec 1st arrived and I was faced with the looming Canada Post deadline to mail off my overseas christmas cards. At this late date I realized that once I sent the overseas cards off, I did not have enough cards left to send locally to my family and friends. I cast my mind over my on hand supplies and tried to chose a design that would make up easily into multiples.
I wanted to make a dozen in total, so I chose a prefolded set of silver glimmer cards that I bought a couple of years ago. I think they were only 5x5 inches so my choice of stamp was limited by size requirements. Luckily I already had 6 stamped images of this Nativity scene ornament, so I quickly stamped 6 more and then cut them with a Lawn Fawn Stitched circle die.
I painted the blue background with twinkling H2O's, and used a Silver Gelly roll pen over the bauble fastener at the top. I had some sheets of Silver fine glitter paper from one of the papercrafts garage sales I attended last summer, and cut them with a Spellbinders scalloped circle die.
I am upstairs at the moment, and the sentiment stamp is down two flights of stairs in my craft room...sorry I do not remember the manufacturer...
After I took this photo, I decided that the card looked rather plain, so I took the silver Gelly Roll pen and carefully went over all the scrollwork around the nativity scene! It went surprisingly fast and I wish I had remembered to retake the photo.
