Staying with simple – Christmas Card Making

Morning everyone

I hope you are all well.

Today I would like to share another simple card again with some over stamping instead of embellishments or extra layers.  This time I have used Seedless Preserves Distress Ink to stamp the image.

Florence Langley Christmas with Crafty Individuals 009AWMf

The sentiment and snowflakes have been stamped in black Archival Ink.
If I am honest, which I am, I used a new DI ink pad and it is a bit juicy.  I over inked the stamp a little and  stamped onto coated card stock therefore I lost some of the fine detail around the eyes.  What I should have done is taken some of the ink off with the old ink pad. Having said that I like the colors and wanted to share this card with you to show what this image looks like in plum.

Thank you for looking
Take care

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Been having a lovely wander around all your gorgeous cards, Flo … it’s been a while, so there were many to enjoy … they’re all wonderful! In particular, I was taken with this bold Santa, he’s such a lovely image … the wintery trees with the fabulous sky … and that awesome richly coloured and decorated folk style Christmas tree! Think I need to come round more often for a good dose of inspiration! Hugs, Anita 🙂
