GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! How are you coming along with your holiday cards? Holiday shopping? Decorating? Or shouldn’t I ask? As for myself – no comment.
Yes, I’m still making holiday cards so I’m back today with another featuring the Holly GoLightly clear stamp set by Power Poppy.
I stamped the image with Amalgam Ink and colored it with Copic markers. I actually colored this image several weeks ago and just go around to making it into a card. Apparently, either I didn’t keep track of the colors or have since lost my notes (either is certainly possible).
For the lacy border, I cut a 1.75″ x 4.25″ strip of white cardstock and used one of the dies in the Lacey Edger 1 set by Pinkfresh Studio to cut the long edges. I recently purchased a Xyron Sticker Maker which I used here to adhere the lacy border die cut. I have a variety of adhesive sheets which I use to adhere intricate die cut, but some of my dies don’t cut cleanly through the layers. So the Xyron really made it easy to adhere the die cut instead of using a liquid glue. Since I’m short on storage space, I really hesitated to buy yet another craft gadget, but I’ve already put this one to use several times so I think it was a worthwhile purchase.
