Keeping Christmas Inspiration Blog Hop

Hello! I'm joining some delightfully talented ladies on the 25th of every month with a fun Christmas creation. I don't know about you, but I always find myself rushing to get things done in the couple of months leading up to Christmas. I'm trying to keep that from happening this year by putting together a couple of creations each month to put in my stash so I won't be crazy busy when Christmas rolls around.

It's the 25th, so it's time for a Christmas creation!

I started my card by cutting a panel using a stitched rectangle die. I used my MISTI to stamp my tree trunk and then the wire for the lights using Memento Tuxedo Black. I then used my MISTI and some Noble Fir ink to stamp the pine needles.

I stamped my sentiment so it looks like the wire from the lights coming from the tree and then stamped the tiny plug onto the end of it. I went back in with the tiny light stamps and a small clear block to add the lights to the wire. I finished the image by stamping the star hanging from the longer branch.

After all the stamping was done, I went back in with my copics and colored the tree, base, lights, star, and plug. I cut and folded a white card base and then adhered the panel directly to the base using my Elmer's glue runner. You can't see it in the photo, but I also added a little clear Wink of Stella to the lights and the star to give them some sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to visit the other stops in the hop!
