Today I made another Christmas card! I really liked the inspiration photo at Merry Monday, so I grabbed some stamps from my stash and pieced them together to make something similar to the photo. The sketch at Atlantic Hearts was perfect for this challenge, too, I just replaced the tag with this mason jar. I'm also entering this into the layered holiday cards at Pile It On.
First I wanted a woodgrain background, and I recently remembered that there was one in the No Worries paper pack I got last summer. Then, I wanted a jar and candle, and they were both in the Candlelight Garden stamp set. I stamped them onto White cardstock and on the B&T paper, and paper pieced them together. I also stamped the peppermints from the Sweet as Sugar stamp set onto white daisy and onto the background paper. I got the evergreen branches from the Yuletide Carol WOTG stamp set. For the little holly berries, I embossed them with cranberry embossing powder. I found the perfect sentiment in the Wintry Wishes stamp set. It fits in with the warmth of the card from the candle.
The candle was colored with a Buttercup alcohol ink marker. I can't believe it still works after all these years. Very few of mine still work, but I wish they did. I loved them so much.
I hope you enjoyed my card, and I hope you'll get to play along at Merry Monday, Atlantic Hearts, and Pile It On this week too!
