I found this adorable holiday paper at my local scrap store and quickly added it to my paper collection (which will never be used otherwise it wouldn't be called a "collection", right ladies?) So I decided I would use the paper for inspiration and create my own. I first stamped the large snowburst image from my new Snow Swirled stamp set using Celery, then I rubbed the entire piece of paper lightly with a stamp sponge dipped in celery ink. Next I used the smaller snowburst and Little Red Riding Hood red ink, I have to say I really like this new color. It's much richer than Real Red and definitely gave my paper the feel of Christmas.
Lastly, I added some Martha red glitter to the centers of the bursts, just needed a touch of sparkle. Granted, I could have made an entire sheet of this "paper" so I could crank out a ton of cards but unfortunately I don't work that way....hindsight is 20/20 but driving blind is priceless. (you can quote me on that!)
This is also one of the cards from my Xmas card class, I can't show them all otherwise the girls coming on Dec 6th would have no surprises to look forward to! Sorry ladies, you're just gonna have to wait!!! ;)
