Let us adore Him...

Good morning!

I have a Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Christmas card to share with you this morning.  This one was made with Dina Kowal's beautiful Seek Him Still stamp set.  I stamped the main image on linen card stock in brown ink and them trimmed around the frame.  To age it, I spritzed it lightly with water and then crumpled the stamped paper into a ball.  To finish it off, I lightly rubbed brown chalk ink over the entire image, being sure to have the ink reach as many as the 'wrinkles' as I could.  Then, I smoothed it all out and added it to the card front with pop dots.

This was a fun 'shabby' card to make - one with lots of distressing on the layers - something I don't always do, but fun to try out with the vintage feel of the focal image I used on my card.  I tried to keep the card relatively flat, so that it wouldn't be too hard to mail for Christmas.  That's one of the reasons why I love to use The Twinery twines on my cards.... it's a pretty flat embellishment, even with the bow, unlike most ribbons.  On this card, I used my very favorite Flax twine - such a versatile color!

Before you go - be sure to check out the two new metallic twines that The Twinery has in stock!

Have a great rest of your day!
