Christmas Cheer

Good Morning
Meet today's card.  A pretty simple one using Alcohol inks on Yupo paper.
Using some simple designs to create cards at this time of year is good.

So here's what I did to create my card.
I wanted my card to feel very traditional so I grabbed a piece of Yupo paper and dropped red and green Ranger Alcohol inks onto it, blending it with alcohol. When I was happy with the blends, I set it aside to dry.  
Next, I die cut the cover plate on a piece of heavy white cardstock.  I have no idea who makes this one as I bought it at a Garage Sale.  I glued that over my inked bkg.
I placed this stamp from Penny Black from the Festive Cheer set, inked it up with some Versamark and gold heat embossed it.  I love the large sentiment for the center of a card. I fussy cut it out and glued it onto a piece of gold cardstock.
I pop dot mounted that over the bkg.
I added it onto a heavy white cardbase.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

This is a wonderful design Karen and love the rich alcohol ink background with the contrasting pretty cover plate and then the great look of the sentiment as a focal image over the top. A super card. x

That background is gorgeous, Karen! Not always easy to combine red and green, but this looks spectacular, especially with the gorgeous white die-cut over top. The die is so elegant and beautiful. xx
