Holiday Card Series 2016 – Day 17

Hello, all!

Today is Day 17 of the Holiday Card Series, and I wanted to create a card for those of you who live in warmer climates during the holidays. The Sun Soaked Christmas stamp set from Newton’s Nook is perfect for a card like that. :)

I stamped the scene in Versafine Onyx Black ink on Desert Storm cardstock and then colored the scene using Prismacolor colored pencils.

After completing the coloring, I stamped the scene again. I stamped it again because the colored pencils can sometimes go over the lines and lighten them. I wanted an intense black line, so I stamped it again and then applied clear embossing powder and heat set it.

To finish off the card, I die-cut only the top half of my colored scene with a circle die, and tied some twine around it.

I hope you enjoy today’s card! Thanks for stopping by!
