Papertrey Ink and Paper Smooches Christmas card




Hi there,

We are ready for another challenge over at Christmas Card Challenge and this time anything goes



I decided to mix it up and have a good play with several sets of stamps and came up with this card



I started off with white card and stamped a random selection of different sized spots with aqua mist ink. I then over-stamped these with a variety of stamps from different sets (PS A Blessed Christmas, Papertrey Ink Snowfall etc) in teal ink, before adding some glitter with a glue pen. I die cut a stitched rectangle and matted it onto teal card before placing it on the base card with foam tape. I tied the sentiment together by cutting a PTI Photo finisher die, stamping 'Christmas' on it, and topping it with the die cut 'Merry' with the Santa  hat which was cut with a Sizzix die.

Why not pop over to see all the inspiration from the Design Team at the Christmas Card Challenge blog, and join in with us this week.

Thanks for stopping by
