Peace, Love & Joy

This card is made using Theresa Momber's "A Very Merry Christmas" stamp set. The background is "All Spruced Up" (green) card stock and the designer paper is from Theresa's Digital paper "All Decked Out", both available from Gina K Designs.

I wanted to do something different with this design. I wanted the bells to have velvet ribbon so I had to stamp the image twice. The first time I stamped it on brushed gold card stock and gold embossed it. The second time I stamped it using Memento Black ink onto a piece of velvet paper. Both images were cut out. The background holly was stamp in black ink and colored with Copic markers. Long rectangle Nestabilities was used to cut it out. A sponge dauber and So Saffron ink were used to highlight the background before taking it out of the die. After arranging the ribbon and bells on the design, I didn't think the bells were shiny enough so I added some micro fine glitter to them.

The verse is from Theresa's set. It was stamped in green then cut out with petite scallop oval Nestabilities. Green ink was sponged on before removing it. A Martha Stewart punch was used for the borders around the main image and a few glitter glue dots added to complete it.
