Christmas Card Season…

…has officially begun at my place. I got some delicious new red rubber with winter/Christmas themes from Prickley Pear to work with this month. At once I started to make these cards, I realized just how much I’ve missed it!

Isn’t this scenery just wonderful?

night before C 1

I colored the image (which will be released soon) with Distress inks, except for the sky which is colored with metallic gelato which gives it a wonderful shine (which I couldn’t capture on the photo). Then I added some snow pen over the snow parts and it gives a fluffy snowy look.

night before 2

To make it all shimmer a bit Christmas-y I misted the whole thing with glimmer mist.

I used the new sketch from CPS for my card:

For more inspiration using Prickley Pear rubber stamps, be sure to visit the blog. The Team is AMAZING! Can’t believe our term is up by the end of September! There is a Design Team Call going on, check it out HERE!

Thanks for stopping by!
