Believe In The Magic Of Christmas


Hi there, I hope you’re having a great week!

I’m super excited for today because I get to go out on the San Francisco Bay aboard the USS Potomac for a few hours with my team from work.  It’s a nice treat to be away from my desk and I absolutely LOVE being on the water.  So, it seemed like perfect timing to make and share this card!

I stamped the large wreath image from Simon Says Stamp’s Mele Kalikimaka stamp set in Copic-friendly Hero Arts Intense Black ink onto an A2-sized piece of Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock.  Then, I colored 🙂

I used a whole bunch of colors, too many to list.  I went for very light colors, some Earths, some Reds, and some Yellow Reds for the shells.  For the Starfish I used some deeper yellows.  For the ribbon I used B00-B05.

I used B04 to color the sentiment die cut which is from the Believe die set, also from Simon Says Stamp.  I adhered it to the shadow die cut which I cut out of My Favorite Things Heavyweight Vellum.  This is an excellent heavy vellum (105lb.!) that I’m using for the first time.  I’m so glad I found it!

The stamped the sentiment, from the Believe stamp set, in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.  To finish, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thanks so much for coming by!
