December Daily 2015: Day 18

Hello! Today I am sharing the Day 18 spread in my December Daily album.

This spread, and today’s story, is all about my handmade Christmas cards this year. 🙂 I love making cards!

The card on the right is a prototype I made before making my Christmas cards. I used a grid card for the base. The background stamp is stamped with Poppy ink. I embossed the “merry everything” stamp with Versamark ink and white embossing powder. Then I rubbed some Poppy ink on top (I have since purchased some Well Red ink and it would work better if you don’t want the pink hue to pop out). I learned this technique from Lisa Spangler in her cardmaking class bundle (she’s amazing!!)

On the back of the card, I applied some acrylic pieces (December from Jasmine Jones’s December Daily mini kit, and the numbers from the Wink Wink scrapbook kit from Studio Calico).
On the right hand side, I included three photos of my cards, which were embellished with digital stamps. In the first pocket, there is a picture of a card I made with this adorable stamp set.
In the bottom pocket you can see how I used the Christmas Icons stamp for a few more cards. I have to say this is my favorite stamp this year! I also used the Alyra stamp set – one of my favorite alphas! I used the Lollipop Guild Believe Digital Brushes and the Lollipop Guild Polar Bear Digital Brushes to embellish this photo.
This was a fun spread to make!
