Simple Christmas

Hi friends! Today I'm popping in with a couple of cards featuring the new Best Gift Ever sentiment set and the previously released O Holy Night set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

I love layers and embellishments, but when it comes to Christmas cards, I'm looking for simple and striking. The sentiments in Best Gift Ever make this an easy task!

For my first card, I masked off the outer edges of a rectangular panel and then ink blended in wilted violet, salty ocean and faded denim distress oxides, flicking on some white glimmer metallic ink for a starry sky.  Next I embossed the Matthew 2:10 verse from Best Give Ever toward the bottom and the star from O Holy Night in the upper center.  A few distressed edges and some dimensional foam tape and this card was done.

For my next card I embossed the nativity circle from O Holy Night in silver in the center, then masked off the outer circle and blended in some blue distress oxides.  I then took a baby wipe and moved some of the ink around in swirling motions to give the appearance of looking at the earth from the cosmos.  I splattered with blue ink and glimmer metallic ink and then embossed the sentiment from Best Gift Ever below.

How about you? Have you started in on your holiday crafting yet?
