Merry Christmas with a White Holiday Border

Stained-Glass-Merry-Christmas-with-Holiday- Border-IMG_0942

I haven’t posted in a while because life has been so busy. Here is one of the holiday cards that I’ve made recently.

I love how this card turned out. No complicated techniques were used. However, the stamps, red cardstock and gold heat embossing of the sentiment make the card pop!

The holiday border stamped in white really helped frame the sentiment. The border was stamped multiple times using white pigment ink to get a good impression.

The card front was cut down to 4” x 5.25” and matted against a 4.25” x 5.5” (normal A2-size) gold glitter cardstock.

Hope you like this project! Merry Christmas!

Supplies used to make this project:

Stamps:  The Ton: Holiday Border Cling Background; Simon Says Stamped: Stained Glass Greetings stamp set.
