Merry Christmas

Every year I stress over how much "stuff" I end up putting on my Christmas cards.  Because, that little bump from ribbon or a brad seems to jack up the price of postage.  Not a big deal, but I like to be able to slap a first class stamp on the envelope and call it good.  
Not all of my Christmas cards will be this simple, but they are easy enough that I crank a few out and not feel burnt out by mass production (which I hate).  I used some Fabriano water color paper as my card base.  I think a simple card looks so classy on that kind of card stock, it makes it feel a little richer.  So I stamped my images, colored them in using Copics, then stamped my sentiment.  It didn't look right, but by rounding the corners it soften it up a little, then I created some score marks using my Scor-pal.  I finished it off my adding a few Want2Scrap rhinestones on either side of the sentiment.
Head on over to the other designers blogs to see what they created with the Ho, Ho's and Holiday Blessing stamp set.

materials used:
water color paper
Avocado Arts stamp set
copic markers
colorbox ink
