Merry Christmas!

Supplies - Decorative Ornament Stamp CG226 - Hero Arts,  
Snowflake punch - Martha Stewart, Opaque White Color Mist - 
Mister Huey's, Sail boat blue acrylic Paint - Adirondack 
Brights by Ranger, White Enamel - Ranger, Blue 
Cardstock, Faded Jeans Distress Ink - Tim Holtz, 
White Cardblank - Anita's, Roller Adhesive 
and machine stitching.

I dug out some of my Hero Arts Stamps (one of my favourite companies!) to create this card.  I painted a layer of acrylic paint directly onto the stamp and stamped onto kraft.  I waited until it was dry and then cut leaving a border.  I added dimension on the ornament using white enamel by Ranger.

When completely dry I machine stitched it to the base (which I had already "splattered" and let dry) and then raised it on pop dots for added dimension.  The sentiment was stamped on white cardstock and I cut out a notch to make it into a banner.

Layered onto blue cardstock and added white snowflakes (Martha Stewart Punch).  Thanks so much for peeking.
