Christmas Card January 2023

These monthly Christmas cards are going to be a little tricky for me.  The 2022-2023 annual catalog includes just a few Christmas stamp sets, and I only have 1 of them.  You'll find them on page 42-44.  I have the Christmas Season, image only stamp set.  I'll have to be pretty creative these next few months for my Christmas cards!

For my card this month, I used the Full Basket dies, the wood grain stamp in Whiskey Business, a sentiment from Simply Fabulous and a few items as embellishments.  I colored the Iridescent Pearls Basic Jewels with a variety of Blend markers.

A fun detail on my card is the wood grain I added to the slats of the basket.  This photo shows what the slats looked like when die cut in Crumb Cake card stock.  I stamped the woodgrain in Whiskey Business in Soft Suede ink, then added more ink with a Blending Brush.  I added Crumb Cake ink to the rest of the basket, too, to bring out the woodgrain embossed by the die.
