Merry Christmas! A Fun Stampers Journey Card

Merry Christmas!  I hope you have all had a great day spending time with family and friends.  I know that I have.  As Christmas day 2016 is about to close for me I have one final Christmas card to share with you.  This is always a special card for me to make because my dad asks me to make a card for my mom that he can give her on Christmas day.  Since her favorite color is blue I always make that the dominant color.


This was another card that was hard to get a good picture of!  The watercolor is a bit more vibrant and the embossed notes aren't gray or super shiny like the pictures show.   My dad and mom both liked it so that's all that matters. :)  


I started by stamping Vintage Notes on watercolor paper using Clear Pigment Ink and embossing it with Journey Silver Embossing Powder.  However before I used my heat gun I used a kleenex to randomly wipe off some of the embossing powder.  I wanted the background to be there, but not be the dominant focal point.  Next I used my Color Splash watercolor pencils to create a colorful background.  After that I stamped two trees from the set Winter Holiday using a Journey Silver ink pad.  Have you seen all the snowflakes I've been putting on my Christmas cards lately?  I'm now down to just a few left.  A couple of these are a lot smaller than the snowflakes I earned for free as a Bloom Benefit.  That's because I broke a few of them when I was a little heavy handed and in a hurry putting them on other cards.  Did I throw them away?  NO WAY! lol  I broke the other parts of the snowflake off and made mini snowflakes! :D  


Thanks for looking and have a great day!
