Be Merry!

Hi everybody! Yes, this is a Christmas card. I decided to jump in and get started, since I should probably create about 50 cards between now and New Year's. I've already posted my Fall cards, so that's my clue to begin my Holiday cards.

Today's creation will be entered into the Hero Arts Holiday Cardmaking Challenge. I enjoyed looking at all the cards that have been entered and suddenly realized I had this wonderful big background stamp. It is called Hero Arts Triangle Tree Cling Stamp, and I love it!

This was my second attempt at this card. The first time, I just used green and white. As soon as I downloaded the picture, I realized it was too plain and needed a touch of bling. So, I remade the card and added a layer of red behind the image panel and then put a few tiny, red sequins beside the sentiment. I still think it could use more, or something like sequins that are a little bigger. Maybe my third attempt?

The sentiment is from My Favorite Things, and it's called Joyous Christmas. I love the big, bold style of the words.

Thanks for stopping by today. I appreciate your comments and visits very much, and I hope to see you again real soon ~

  2. I hear ya about not knowing the name of the greeting stamp. Early on when I first started making cards I always threw away all the packaging. Little did I know that I would start participating in challenges and would need to know the products I was using. Anyway, nothing we can do about it know, short of searching the web to find the item. I really like that background stamp - very versatile! And your card is awesome, I love the vellum, really effective here. Well done!!!
