Joy

Hello stamping fans!
Still haven't decided on a Christmas card to make to send out, but if I keep up at the rate I'm at, I will have a enough different cards to send out to everyone on my list.
That being said, I'd like to show you another fun Christmas card.
I saw this style of card somewhere the other day and loved it.  Unfortunately, I forgot to pin it to my board on Pinterest so I don't know whose blog I got it from.  Sorry!  If you are interested in how to make this style of card, e-mail me and I will get back to you with some instructions.

For this card I have used 2 images;
Joy (#15703) and Christmas Border (#15706) from QKR Stampede
I stamped the Joy image and colored it with watercolor pencils

On the inside of the card, I stamped the Christmas Border image, colored it with watercolor crayons and put Glossy Accents over the image.  I love the way Glossy Accents gives such a nice shine!

This is a 4" x 4" card, but it fits nicely into a standard invitation sized envelope.  If you want to be sure it doesn't slide in the envelope, you can use some foam tape and stick it inside the envelope on either side of the card.
Using this size envelope will keep you from having to pay extra postage for a square envelope.

If you are like me and haven't started your Christmas cards yet, pop into the QKR Stampede shop and see what wonderful Christmas images you might want to work with.  You will find links there to the 2 sister companies of QKR, Eureka! Stamps and Biblical Impressions or follow my links.  They all have wonderful images that come in rubber or digital format.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Let me know what you think of this style of card in a comment.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
