Christmas Corner

Hello Folks!

It's Friday!!!!  I have another of my weekly Christmas cards to share today:

I fell for the Simon Says Stamp December Card Kit, with it's exclusive limited time availability Tim Holtz stamp set. Great marketing! I don't regret it.  It was filled with Tim goodies.

I colored the tag with swipes of Distress Stains that I dried and covered with a layer of Picket Fence stain to soften the color and allow it to coordinate better with the lovely vintage colors of the District Market card base.  I brushed on a swath of Peeled Paint Distress Crackle, and allowed it to dry before stamping the fabulous horse and sleigh stamp with black Archival. 

I love Distress Crackle.  Did you know that if your jar has started to dry out and thicken, you can just stir in a bit of water to revive it? 

I added the Merry Christmas stamp from the kit, and some ribbon from my stash before adhering the tag to the card base. 

For the inside, I added a different TH sentiment stamp with Olive Archival.

Here is a final view of the front:

Are any of you getting a head start on Christmas cards this year? 

Have a lovely day!
