Merry Christmas

Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380.

I hope your Black Friday has been going well.  I've had a great day! I've spent most of the day in my Studio, alternating between Black Friday online sales, vinyl Christmas projects and card making.  I've also consumed lots of Iced Coffee and kinda day!

I worked on this card this afternoon and cannot get a decent photo no matter what I try.  I probably should wait until tomorrow when I have some sunlight, but I'm ready to put this away and get started on the next thing.  This card is super sparkly, but when I try to capture the sparkle, I seem to lose the vibrant colors created with my Distress Inks.  Anyway, here we go....

The background was created with Distress Inks in the following colors:
Peacock Feathers
Mermaid Lagoon
Wilted Violet

After blending my inks, I spattered my cardbase with a little "Starry Colors" by Gansai Tambi in White Gold.
The intricate die cut is from the Mesmerizing Mandala die from My Favorite Things.  I used their silver glitter cardstock and love the shimmer!

The sentiment is from the Lawn Fawn stamp set, Christmas Dreams. I stamped with clear Versamark ink and embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder.

As a finishing touch, I added a few silver star-shaped sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Okay - time to get back to some Christmas crafting and maybe a little more shopping.
Thank you so much for stopping by today.  See you soon!
