Glad Tidings!

September has arrived in Florida with a flurry of hurricane preparations and all of the stress and anxiety that go along with an unpredictable storm.  I was happy, in the midst of all of the storm prep, to take a break in my stamping studio to create this Stamp Simply Christmas card.  

This Graphic 45 designer paper is simply glorious and it coordinates just perfectly with our Christmas Blessings holly!  I think this vintage color scheme is so classically elegant and just a little bit different than the usual traditional red and green!  

For the holly embellishment, I stamped off some Memento Rich Cocoa once before stamping the leaf on white card stock, coloring with Copics, which gives an almost no-line look.  I added some white Prisma pencil accents to the berries, and clear glitter Wink of Stella pen to the rest of the leaf before splattering the entire card front with a little broken china distress ink and white Gesso "snow."

Although this gold Noel sentiment is difficult to see in this photo, it is a bit more obvious IRL.

The inside has a small border print accent and another gold this flourished font!  So regal and perfect for Christmas.
