Technique Junkies Christmas Cards

Hello Junkies!!

We are coming into the home stretch of the Holiday season and I hope you all are taking some time to get a little holiday crafting in before the season passes.  As a tip to be prepared for next year, why don’t you make a few extra cards this December then store them away in preparation for next year!

My first card today uses one of my absolute favorite holiday stamps called “Christmas Dove”.   I created a shaker card after I white heat embossed the dove and colored it with Distressed Stains. For more great ideas using Distress Stains check out the techniques on “Artistic Effects CD”.  The sentiment I used is from “Christmas Ornaments Set of 9″, which is so versatile and can be used as either a holiday or a thank you card.

My second card features “Oh Holy Night”, which I silver heat embossed and stamped over a watercolor background.  This is perfect for mass production.

I want to wish each and every one of you the most wonderful holiday season.  We’ve got some exciting new stamps to feature for you on January 1st so we’ll see you then when the design teams returns for our first Blog Hop of 2017!

Until next year,

The Crafty Nurse
