Christmas Joy

Maybe it's time to start making Christmas cards.  For this card I've used stamps from Hero Arts AC026 Brush Strokes, a very non-Christmas stamp set, to make the tree and the baubles using my favourite stamping technique, which is stamping without embossing (lazy).

Hero Arts are having a Holiday Challenge, with three categories (mine's the third category):
  • Deck the Cards — ‘Tis the season for decking the halls…and of course the cards, too! Use at least one Hero Arts embellishment to deck-out your holiday card. A few options include metallic decor, gems, pearls, and felt embellishments.
  • Merry and Bright – Brighten up your holidays with NEON! Use any Hero Arts neon ink or neon dauber on your project.
  • A Few of My Favorite Things – Create any Christmas/Holiday/Winter card with a favorite stamping technique plus a Hero Arts holiday stamp.

And the challenge at Less is More this week is TREES:

It doesn't matter what kind of trees, but we would like to see a little more than just leaves!

So mine's a Christmas Tree:)
