Christmas Card - What? Already?


I know, I know, it's a little early to be thinking about Christmas already...but when you're doing a swap card you just have to roll with it.  Here's another swap card I made.  (I must really like coloring, because I made 27 of these cards.)

I really liked the way it turned out.  I used a pattern straight out of the Originals card book, the brand new stamp set St. Nick and papers from the Mistletoe Level 2 paper pack and Mistletoe Creative Basics (LOVE the Creative Basics - 6 sheets each of 2 different styles, PLUS 4 yards of coordinating gold ribbon).

It's hard to see, but I also used the Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel on Santa's pom-pom.  I also used a glitter gel pen on the berries and present, and "puffy tape" (foam mounting tape) on the holly.  Have fun with it!
