Another Christmas Card

Good Evening Everyone! This will be my last Christmas card for a few days. I'm just trying to stock up on my Christmas cards before it gets too busy and I won't have time to make them.

I wanted to create a simple design because I really like the designer paper and didn't want to cover it up with too many layering. The stamp image again is by TAC. . .check out Jen's "Pieces of Me" if interested in TAC stamps.

I colored the image with Prismacolor Markers and applied SU Crystal Effects to give a 3D appearance. That's about it. I rarely make simple cards because I'm so accustomed to layering and adding all sort of stuff to them. I kinda like the simple look and it's much faster to make. It's also nice to show off the paper rather than covering it up all the time.

Hope y'all are having a nice evening.

Card Details:
Stamps: TAC Gifttags, Stampin Up Warm Words
Ink: Prismacolor Markers
Paper: SU Old Olive, Taken With Teal, Provocraft Holiday Stack
Accessories: JoAnn Brads, SU Crystal Effects

That's a versatile sketch. I'll eventually use it for sure. Gorgeous card too.

As for your controversial posts, darnit I either missed them or didn't even think they were controversial, LOL. I'm confused, oh well, WEIN?

hugs, xoxo
