Merry Monday Challenge #3

Here is my third and final post for the night:  the Merry Monday Challenge #3.  I love the idea of making my Christmas cards throughout the year.  I'm usually such a procrastinator, and this makes me feel like I'm accomplishing something that I'll be able to use which will contribute to my stress free Christmas in 2012.  Such a great feeling!

Today I went for sparkle and shine!

For my paper, I used real red cardstock, Candy Cane Christmas DSP, red and silver glimmer paper, and whisper white.  I used the A Cute Christmas stamp set and Petite Pairs for the greeting.  I added a hint of dazzling details on the little trees, plus my clear star jelly roll pen.  In person it really sparkles!

I made several more cards of the same design with different colored cardstock backgrounds.  Fun!

And, I decided that this challenge is a wonderful way to put some unused Christmas stamps to the ink.  I'm going to try not to use the same stamp twice.  We'll see how that goes!  Thanks for stopping by!
