O Holy Night

This is one for you folks out there who like to get inky.  You ready?

Take an appropriate sized piece of white card and colour using your distress inks.  Using your O Holy Night stamps you want to stamp your sentiment in the upper right hand corner then add a few flourishes around the edges.  Now run your quickie glue pen around the edges and add some glitter before layering on to a slightly larger black matt.  This can now be adhered to your base card. 

Next you want to cut a piece of white card slightly larger than your Heirloom Ornament die and colour as before and finally cut to shape.  Now stamp your image on to the bauble, adding some flourishes around the edge again and that all important glitter..  well it is Christmas afterall lol.  Now we want to lift some colour from our main stamped image and we do this very simply using a water brush.  Remember your distress inks are water based so they will lift easily when water is applied. 

Next we want to layer our bauble on to some black card and using the die as a guide cut around the shape leaving a small black border then repeat this process on white card.

Finally we layer our bauble on to our base card, add some embellishments to create that all important 'hanging' bauble and a bow on top. 

Gosh folks we're actually doing quite well on the Christmas card production line aren't we!
