Christmas Card 2011

Thank you for visiting, and may I take this opportunity to wish you Christmas greetings. 

Just a short post today to display my Christmas card for this year, as I know folk I posted to have now received them. 

I kept them very CAS this year and was pleased with the result.
The images are from Layers of Color, from two of their new Christmas sets
Christmas Verses and Glad Tidings.

The dove was stamped and gold embossed, the holly painted with twinkling H2O's and some Kindy glitz added. 

I cut a spellbinders classic oval die out of some scrap card, stamped the image on another scrap, then cut it out and adhered it inside the edges of the cut oval, this was used as a stencil so I could sponge the edges of the oval.  After sponging I ran a blue glitter pen around the inside edge of the die.

The sentiments were both stamped in red.

My apologies to the overseas recipients that they did not get the glitter on their cards - that inspiration did not strike until later .

I am linking this to:

May your Christmas be blessed.

Card: white
Ink: memento Red Rooster and Danube Blue, Clear Embossing ink.
Accessories: Blue glitter pen, spellbinders classic oval dies, kindyglitz.

So very beautiful, Maxine! Love the way you've used the glitter on the dove and the clever use of the masking so that only the dove is stamped! Love the scripture and sentiments from LOC! Merry Christmas!!
