Christmas Card Ideas

Hello Everyone!
I have been working with the stamp, Mary and Angels, and have made some shimmery Christmas cards.  I added glitter and stamped on velum for some interesting results.  I also used the Merry Christmas Sentiment from the Party Words set.

On the first card, I stamped on velum with black ink.  I made sure the ink was dry before working with the piece.  The velum was turned over and colored on the backside with a red Vellum Writer (Zig).  The piece was layered over white CS.  I stamped the image again on white CS; cut out Mary and added her to the piece with dimensional adhesive.

On the second card, I stamped the image with Sahara Sand Versa Magic  ink.  When the ink was dry, I painted the image with Lumiere Paint.  While the paint was still wet, I sprinkled on Diamond Glitter.  And, I stamped another Mary and made her dimensional.

Cards three and four were made in the same way, except that black ink was used for the stamping.  If the paint drys too quickly, a glue pad can be used to adhere the glitter.  That is what I did with this card as the paint dried too quickly.

A lovely sent of Christmas cards with lots of sparkle!  Hope you enjoyed!! Happy Holidays!!
