It's almost Christmas! Woo Hoo! My babies start their holiday break from school this Friday. I love having them home every day. Everyone in their pajamas, because there's not one place we have to be.
Speaking of Christmas, I wanted to share with you a Christmas card I created for this week's Peachy Keen Stamps challenge. The challenge theme is Just Cards: Glitter
It took me a few days to come up with an idea for this challenge. Glitter? I put glitter on everything! :-) Especially since I am part of the wonderful blog All that Stickles.
I just love how this card turned out. Blue is not a typical color for me. My mother (who loves blue), as well as the sketch, was my inspiration for my card.
I used PKS's Candy Stripe Background stamp on the large blue mat. I stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with a Recollections Sparkly powder.
The 3 strips were placed together and stamped with the holly leaves/berries from the November 2012 SOTM set. Then they were adhered spaced apart. But with the stamps, it gives a continual look to the eye.
The Santa is from PKS Santa Stamp Set. I cut the circle from Xpress cardstock, then stamped the Santa face image, with his beard off the circle. He was colored with Copics, and his hat trim was highlighted with Diamond Stickles.
The patterned papers are from Bo Bunny's Elf Magic paper pad.
The inside of the card was stamped with a sentiment from the November 2012 SOTM set. Another bit of inspiration from my mother. (If you knew my mother, you'd completely understand.) :-)
I added a holly sticker with pop dots from a page kit that I picked up from Hobby Lobby last season.
