Merry Christmas

Hello everyone,

I wanted to keep today's Christmas card very clean and simple but got a little carried away.

The background stamp is Hero Art Holly Flourish coloured with Color Box gold and Tombow markers. The flourishes were highlighted with Sakura Clear Star Gelly Roll pen. The sentiment is Impression Obsession Christmas Sentiments stamped on Stampin' Up Whisper White and layered on Bazzill Basics Glazed Christmas and Cherry Cobbler.

There are not a lot of separate elements on this card which in a manner of speaking makes it a clean and simple card. Colouring this stamp was a challenge that required some masking and this large a stamp is and was difficult to stamp. I decided to highlight with my favourite Sakura pen in an attempt to diminish the less than perfect impression. Though it doesn't photograph well, this ink applied to the Color Box gold ink is absolutely and stunningly amazing - try it! It has made this so so card wonderful! I love it and can't wait to use it again.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
