BYSHC Linky party card #2

I created this card using some of the pretty Christmas papers I bought on the after Christmas sales. I used an image from Unity for the mail focus of my card, and used a Gina Marie die for the circle. This is a 5 by 5 card.  The image was stamped in Versamark and I added Ranger gold embossing powder for the embossing. This is a fun way to spend some time getting some Christmas cards done ahead of time. Check out the details for this fun part on the above link and join in on the fun!!


BYSHC Linky Party

 I have been needing to get started on Christmas cards and this Linky Party is a real motivation for me. Thanks, Ladies. I stenciled my card with a Gina K stencil using distress oxide inks and this digital is from Angie Blom Digitals that I had ordered last Christmas season. I used distress oxide ink blended for the sky. This is CAS design and an easy to mail card for next Christmas. Thanks again BYSHC for this fun event. It is helping get my mojo going so that I can get a number of these seasonal cards made months ahead.
