Christmas is just around the corner!!

It will be here before we know it! Look how fast the summer flew by! So I decided, since it is 90 degrees outside, to make a Christmas card. Go figure!!

The patterned paper is by Rhonna Farrer for Autumn Leaves and the stamp set I used is by Hero Arts, CL100 Many Blessings.

I stamped the trees onto white cardstock with dark brown ink. Then colored in the trunks with my Martha Stewart brown marker and the trees with my glistening chalks. Then added some White Puffs Embossing powder by Ranger and heated it up. It looks so cool when it puffs up! I then punched out the trees with my 2 1/8 circle punch and inked the edges with red ink. I also punched out the circles in the background and stamped them with little snowflakes in light blue ink and stickled them up too! I adhered the trees with pop dots.

The snowmen and bird are colored in with some more Martha Stewart Markers (they are a good thing!) and then I topped them off with some stickles.

Added some Hero Arts crystals and some ribbon and there you have it!!

Have a great day!

Hugs, Melissa
