1 Sketch, 2 Christmas Cards

Last weekend I went out with my friends to Hobby Lobby and I found this Stampabilitties rubber stamp that has Christmas verse on it for only $3! I love the verse from Luke2:11. This is what Christmas trully means.

Today I am sharing 2 Christmas cards I made using 1 sketch from Mojo Monday 428.

The tags I created using Canson waterolor paper because I painted the backgrounds.

For the first card I used the old hymnal music sheet for the background paper and the border strip is from CTMH – Sparkle and Shine paper packet. I heat embossed the sentiment using AC Black Glitter Finish Embossing Powder. Then embellished it with twine bow and a glitter holly leaves and red sequins.

I also link this card at Virginia’s View Challenge #21 – All About Glitter.

This second card I used the same sketch from Mojo Monday 428. On this card, I created that cute bow using WRMK Envelope Punch Board. It is very easy to do that. I followed this tutorial if you want to try 🙂

I watercolored the tag background using Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean Distress Mini Ink Pads and wet them using Aquash Waterbrush. It was fun watching the colors blended and mixed together and how they react with water.

I also enter this card at:

2 cards are done today and I only need 15 more to make for our church friends.
