Merry Christmas.

Hello my friends, sorry I've been MIA for so many days, as I mentioned before I am having really bad back problems, hopefully I will start feeling better soon. But for now I have a Christmas card!!

  • Stamp image in a white piece of cardstock in Black Ink (Tuxedo Black), color image, stamp an extra Cardinal image, color it and die-cut it.
  • Cut label border at the bottom. Ink edges and adhere to card.
  • Bend a bit the die-cut image, adhere foam tape in the middle and adhere to card. Add a touch of glue on top and bottom of image, press and let it dry.
  • Add Diamond glaze to the Cardinal and let it dry.
  • Adhere Diamond and Gold stickles to the mailbox.
