Creative Expressions - Christmas Post

For this week's Creative Expressions sample I am using a Christmas set I got last year called Christmas Post. This very versatile set UMCHRISPOST is one of Sam Poole's designs. I used it last year for Stampaholic's very last One Day Workshop.

Christmas Post
 It has so many lovely little elements as well as several main images.
This is one of the cards I designed for the workshop. It is so quick and easy - just what you need for batching your Christmas cards.

I used the pine sprig to create the trailing garland effect. I also picked a soft green background paper to stamp on.
  • Start at the bottom and stamp up towards the centre of where the circle will be. I stamped first in a soft grey, then over stamped with Archival Library Green.
  • Stamp the snowy cottage onto the background paper with Archival Library Green ink and immediately cover with crystal embossing powder. Although Archival is a dye based ink you can emboss with it if you are quick!!
  • Cut out with circle nestie and matt onto a scallop nestie.
  • I finished off the trailing pine by adding dots of liquid pearls and covering them with crystal glitter. 
  • Add your sentiment and you are done.
Where would we be without Nestabilities!!!
I am sure some of our regulars from Stampaholics will remember this one.
