Festive Friday Blog Hop #10 | The Magic of Christmas

It's time for the Festive Friday Blog Hop hosted by Terri Sproul again. This bi-monthly blog hop features Holiday cards from 13 talented card crafters as we get our Christmas cards ready early this year.

If you reached this stop from Fab's blog Fab's Big Christmas Card Challenge , then you are in the right spot! If you would like to start from the beginning, you can return to Terri's blog.


For this easel card I used an older Close to My Heart set called Christmas Magic. I stamped my image on Kraft cardstock with Frayed Burlap Distress ink from Ranger. I then used my blender with the distress ink to color the images. I swiped around the edges of the cardstock and it's layers with the distress ink. I highlighted areas of the stamped images with Diamond Glaze and then sprayed the entire Kraft and Green cardstock with homemade mister made from Perfect Pearls, Reinker, and water. The images is then mounted with Bazzill Matte Brads. The punched accent is an EK Success border punch.
