Bah Humbug

Well I sometimes question how my mind works, all this glorious weather and I am inspired to make a "Christmas Card" lol. Well truth be told I was inspired by the new "Bah Humbug challenge - Trees". I have used my "Penny Black - Home For Christmas 3990K" stamp.

I inked the stamp with my "Perfect Plumeria" Versa Magic ink pad and then heat embossed it with some crystal embossing powder for a subtle sparkle. I then added some gems and magenta sparkles to the baubles on the tree.

I dry embossed one panel on the card with my snowflakes embossing folder (rather than use a design paper) and added the gorgeous ribbon from the "Ribbon Girl" and silver Christmas Tree charm. Well it makes a change for me not to have used any promarkers on this card lol.

I'm off  to straighten up the wonky left hand edge it is bugging me lol.


  1. Eeeek!!! A Christmas card!!! It'll be no time before I'm in a panic to get some made, so I suppose you're the clever one getting some done early!

  7. I have that stamp! It is a great stamp! I did a similar thing with the gems to make baubles. Only the rest of my card was not as great as yours, mine was very plain. But now I have a good idea for next time!
