Peace card by Patty Folchert

The most wonderful time of the year is almost upon us and it is time to get busy on those Christmas Cards! Here is a somewhat untraditional card created with a Hampton Art clear stamp set and watercolor tag.

Peace card by Patty Folchert

With this card I was going for an elegant look, so less is more in that case. I first embossed the card with a Darice embossing folder, Birch Trees. Then I stamped the blue watercolor tag with sentiment and extra snowflakes in gray ink and set aside to dry. Next I stamped directly onto the card base using the same ink to make the snowflakes. Then I found some lovely gray ribbon and added to the bottom as a border strip and tied a bow and added to the tag with a glue dot as shown. Then the tag was added to the card base using 3D foam dots. All that was left was to add a tiny gemstone of bling in the center of each of the snowflakes.

There you have it, an elegant Christmas card that would not be very difficult to mass produce. This set even comes with a stencil as well. Have you started your Holiday cards? If so we would love to hear about them!

Peace to All,
Patty Folchert
