One More Christmas Card by Judy Jackson

I have seen a lot of small Christmas trees on cards this year.  I kept thinking about that and wondered what I could design using a punch and a background stamp from Technique Junkie stamps.  I even pictured what stamp I would use  - one with swirls. 

I used a textured piece of card stock for the base card.  The I added a layer of navy card stock.  I tore some shimmery white paper to make the hills. I added a just a bit of liquid glue on the edges  and dipped the edges in glitter. 

The background stamp I used is #S538 Japanese Swirl on this web page - I inked up the stamp with white pigment ink and used a shimmery clear embossing powder and heat set it. Then I punched out the trees and tucked them behind the snowy hills in a pleasing arrangement.  I added some peel and stick bling on each tree. 

I created the moon and cloud wisps with my finger tip.  I inked up the end of finger to get the ink where I wanted it. 

Merry Christmas is from the stamp set #SS1b Simple Sentiments on this web page -

Christmas cards do not need to be complex to create but making them pretty sure counts!

So here is a lovely Christmas card where the focal images do not come from would traditionally be called a "Christmas" stamp!
