Christmas Magic

Whew! FINALLY I got a chance to stamp and make a card. This is very simple but it just feels good to have a chance to create something.

I think the snowman image is a Lockhart stamp design. I'm not positive as it was given to me. I colored the snowman with prismacolor pencils and added dimensional glaze and stickles to the lightbulbs to give shine as well as sparkle. The sentiment, Christmas Magic, is an A Muse artstamp.

The background is embossed using my cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder. The snowflakes are punched using my Martha Stewart snowflake punched.

I wanted to create the feeling of dimension and falling snow all around so in real life if you could hold this card you'd see that one flake is mounted on a foam square while the other flake is flat to the embossed background paper. On the snowman image I adhered the white matt directly flat to the background paper and then popped the navy matt and image above it.

Sure feels good to be back making cards, even if it is just a simple one!


  1. Simple! You make me laugh Jennifer. LOL Glad you're getting inky again. Must mean Bella is doing better. Love the card - big fan of snowmen.

  2. Wonderful! Love the blue CB background, looks so "cold"
    Great stamp too!!

  3. Oh, this is anything BUT simple. It is delightfully cheerful! What a wonderful card to get someone into the Christmas spirti! (I'm really into 'blue' this Christmas season, also! LOL!)
