30 Days of Christmas Day 12 - Technique Junkie Stamps!!!

This is Day 12 of the 30 Days of Christmas challenge both on the Technique Junkie Design team
blog http://techniquejunkies.blogspot.com/  on the various  Design Team member's personal blog.

Any one who has followed my blog for very long knows my life has been turned completely upside down in ways I would not have wished for.   So this year I have decided to try and keep my Christmas cards nice but simple and using as many supplies that I already have.  So I have cut up background paper in various sizes and have been using those pieces and sort of "quilted" them for the back ground.  I did that here. 
 
For the focal image I used  a piece of white card stock, sprayed several different vintage colors of the Art Anthology sprays and then some gold glimmer spray on the top.  Then i stamped the focal image Technique Junkie Stamps The Greatest Story http://techniquejunkies.com/the-greatest-story/ and embossed it.    I used a clear Star Dust glimmer pen to go over the letters and around the edges of the card stock to add dimension and interest.  And it worked.  There is a small piece of Taupe lace wrapped around the layer with the pieces of background paper.   And I am done. 
 
  I hope you have started on your Christmas cards. Christmas will be here before you know it.

Have an inky day.

Very nice. Thanks so much for sharing. I'm hoping to get a few things caught up this week, and start cards next week. I'm so behind.

Wonderful, Judy! Yes, I have favorite techniques and styles of cards that are simple. Often, they become my favs, too. Your card is very effective!

What you have done makes the cards so personal. A great idea and a beautiful one. From the heart and soul always makes the card much more special. TFS
