Cherry Lynn Challenge #160 - Non-Traditional Christmas Colors
I enjoyed making this Christmas card yesterday with no idea how it will turn out using a very difficult stamp that rarely comes out well. This is the Silent Night Impression stamp from Paper Inspiration and I had success using the Tsukinek Slate Gray dye ink after trying numerous other inks for this particular stamp. I distress the edges of the stamp with Stampin Up Crumb Cake ink to make it look like it was a picture from an old painting of Mary and Jesus.
The Merry Christmas saying is from Cherry Lynn with the snowflakes cut off and used antique gold glitter paper with some brown color added to make it look antique. The corners are from the Cherry Lynn Lace Deco Corner Set. I added a charm saying Jesus between Merry and Christmas.
The frame is from Die'Sire Create-A-Card called Decandence and the backing of the frame is a metallic bronze color paper. The flourish behind Merry Christmas is from Memory Box.
