Visible Image Stamps, Distress inks, Wow clear embossing powder and Stickles.

Hello crafty friends,

I'd like to share with you today, my very first Christmas card of the year, 
it's very early for me, as I don't usually start making them until at least November, and then I moan that I've left it too late.......again, lol.

Well anyway, I received this great Christmas stamp from Visible Image, and felt the need to use it straight away !!!!

The stamp is called 'Christmas Collage', 
it's just one stamp, great if you have loads of festive cards to make. 
I chose to stamp it on white card three times using Distress Inks, in Vintage Photo, Chipped Sapphire and Bard Door and I heat embossed them all with clear powder.
I left the brown layer whole, and gently distressed it all to give a vintage look.

The blue layer was cut around the Christmas tree square, adding the Dec 25th scroll on it too. This was given the stickles treatment, well there has to be some bling !!!

The last layer is the red, cutting out the Dec 25th scroll, and the words 'Merry Christmas', these were distressed around the edges with Vintage Photo.
 All the layers were then put together using silicone gel, to give it a touch of dimension.

A very simple 6"x 6" vintage inspired card, but I hope you'll agree,
 quite effective.

Take a look at all the Christmas stamps at Visible Image and of course the rest of their range, there are some new Snowflakes, which I am looking forward to playing with.
