Project Details

One of my challenges in making Christmas cards is that I tend to make them too complicated to replicate quickly and too bulky to mail efficiently. . .so I've tried to strike a balance with these two examples. They both start with a main panel where the image is stamped multiple times with various techniques to give the impression of layers without the bulk. One is stamped on glossy photo paper using VersaMark and then rubbing on Ranger Distress ink, followed by stamping in various colors.

  1. What a gorgeous Christmas card Jan Marie!! I just love all the snowflakes you used to create the background, your hues of blue and your sentiment!! These are perfect for replicating and mailing. I tend to make mine to intricate and bulky too.
    Have a blessed day dear friend!

  2. Gorgeous, Jan Marie! I always love blue Christmas card...they have such a serene feel to them. And this is beautiful with the snowflakes and, of course, such a wonderful verse -- Jesus came to earth....for us! Praise God! Hugs, Cheryl

  3. So beautiful!! I love the two take on a blue Christmas card!! So many lovely flakes, I'm especially fond of the flakes on the verse, very creative!!
