Paper Craftin with Erica

Holiday Beauty!

Hello and Happy Holidays!  Well, it WAS starting to look like Christmas; however, the majority of our snow has melted and now… it doesn’t look like Winter anymore.  Anyway, I have a Holiday card to share with you and it was a rather neat technique.

I used an old stamp set to stamp the ‘plain’ tree in green on craft cardstock.  Then, I took the tree “snow” stamp and stamped it on a piece of clear acetate in white pigment ink and then embossed it so it looked more like snow.  How cool is that?!  I love it!


Challenges I’m entering: My Time to Craft (Christmas Trees); Crafty Cardmakers (Christmas); The Pink Elephant (Winter Inspiration); Love to Create (Icey Winter Days): Simon Says (Winter Inspiration; and Inky Impressions (Winter Wonderland).

I hope you all have a wonderful Holiday, however you celebrate it… stay warm and take care.  XOXOXO
