Happy Holidays


Yesterday was World Card Making Day.  It is such an exciting day for anyone who is a cardmaker.  This is a joyous hobby shared by so many around the world.  With use of the internet, we can share, encourage and become friends with many that we have never met before in real life.  It is fun to also watch the trends in the paper crafting world by seeing what others are doing in another part of the world.  I am truly amazed and inspired at the beauty others can create using a piece of paper.

Anyways, on to today's card.  It is a simple one using masking and a big stamp from a Stampin Up set I won.  I masked off the area, sponged on Distress inks, splattered water then stamped the big snowflake and added the sentiment.  I was inspired by a book from Barnes and Noble seen below.
I am adding my card to the Korttikarkuri challenge; Stamp a Happy Christmas.
Thanks so very much for stopping by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps; Stampin Up/ Distress inks/ pop dots/ Memento ink
