Holiday Lamp






Christmas in July always gets me inspired to get a start on my Christmas cards.  This is the theme this month for the Just For Fun Monthly Challenge so I thought I would share another card I made for my favorite holiday.


I used some lovely blue cardstock with a white core and ran it through an embossing folder.  The raised area was sanded to bring out the white core and then the outer edges were inked.  Spellbinders’ Laced with Love Blooming Collection Etched Die was used to create the white frame.


The image, Christmas Lantern, was stamped in blue and die cut with Spellbinders Classic Oval die.  This was layered on a slightly larger blue oval that has been inked around the edges.  A little yellow glow was added to the lantern with a Copic Marker.


The sentiment, from the Sentiments 1 Unmounted Sheet, was also stamped in blue and die cut with JustRite’s Spellbinders Nested Sentiment die.  The edges were inked and small blue jewels were added.

We would love to see your Christmas creations.  You have until the end of the month to join our monthly challenge for a chance at a gift certificate to the Just For Fun store.
