Festive Friday

Welcome, this is our last post for 2012.  All year we have been working on making our Christmas cards and today's post is our last.  We invite you to link up and share with us your festive creations as well.  The hop starts with Terri Sproul, please start from the beginning and if you are joining us you can link up on her page.

Today I got to play with my new Viva Decor products.  I love everything they make and finally got some of their stamps and new paints so I decided to make this card using their products.  I'm really happy with the end results and I hope you all like it as well. I made two different cards, the first I stamp right on the white card stock, the second I did the stamping on velum that was adhered to blue card stock and then all glued onto the white card stock that was inked with the 3D stamp pain in light blue metallic, and stained with silver and light blue paper pens from Viva Decor (not pictured).

My first card

Here is my second card  made using two stamped images on white velum, first snowflakes stamped with 3D  stamp paint light blue metallic, then the second image was stamped using the 3D stamp paint in black, stamped a sled and bell on velum with 3D stamp paint in carmine red meatllic
