Inspired Merry Christmas


Are you ready for another of my “inspired” cards? This one was inspired by this framed art that I saw in a gift shop.


I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then cut out my Snow Drifts Die-namics element. I gently traced the snow drifts on the base with a pencil, then stamped my trees from Inspired by Winter with Black Licorice ink, some images were stamped off once. Then I stamped the sentiment, from part of an image from LJD Grand Holiday Greetings, with Black Licorice ink, and the bird, from Inspired by Caged Bird with Wild Cherry ink. I cut “merry” with Christmas Greetings Die-namics from Wild Cherry card stock, popped it up on foam, and popped up the snow drift as well. To finish it off I added a tiny clear gem to the bird’s eye. This card would actually be a good one to mass produce—it went really fast once I designed it.

For the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About Christmas.


And there you have it! Thanks so much for stopping by today!
