Merry Christmas Lantern

Have you started working on your Christmas Cards?  It seems a bit early, but I am looking forward to having all my cards ready to go before the busy holiday season.  I love the stamp used on this card.  It is from the Festive Candlelight PreCut Set by Heartfelt Creations.  It was stamped on water color paper.  I wanted to see if Copic markers would work on water color paper and was very pleased with the results.  I just lightly pressed on the marker so a lot of ink did not absorb into the paper.  I sponged on Scattered Straw Distress Ink over the image, sponged yellow ink around the flame, then added gold Stickles to the flame.   The stamped lantern was die cut using a scallop oval Nestability.  The background design paper is from the Heartfelt Creations Festive Christmas Paper Collection.  The stamped image was added to the Spellbinder Filigree Delight frame with dimensional glue dots.  

To add dimension to the design, I added a poinsettia created with the Petite Poinsettia PreCut Set.  It was placed over the poinsettia in the stamped design.  The sentiment (tag) was cut from the Festive Christmas Design Paper.  Along the outside edge, I added some large gold, flat backed beads with glue dots.

I forgot to take a picture of the inside of this card but I used the sentiment from the Festive Candlelight PreCut Set, and stamped the pretty poinsettia border below it.  

Today Heartfelt Creations has a lot of new cards/projects on their blog that I am sure you will want to check out.  Here is the LINK.

Hi Selma,
I am interested in knowing if you purchase all the supplies that you use in your projects and post links to in your blog? Or do the suppliers send you the items for free?
