Christmas Joy - Easy Christmas card

Hello and Happy Monday!

Today I have as easy Christmas card idea to share!  Sadly, the photo does not do the sparkle embossing powder any justice.  Sparkle Embossing Powder is my most used embossing powder!  The jar is actually half empty.



I also used generation stamping with the snowflakes after noticing they were too bold stamped first generation.

Supplies: Recollections Christmas Noel stamp set, Versafine Magestic Blue ink, Recollections Sparkle Embossing powder, GKD In the Navy cardstock

I would love to participate in the following challenges:
Merry Monday: Christmas Carols (Of course my carol is Joy to the World)


Thanks so much for reading and for your kind comments!

This is stunning. I never manage to get the full stamp images like this to stamp evenly! Yours is superbly stamped. Nice full coverage.

Off to read up about generation stamping...

Thanks Maureen, I really think it is the Versafine ink that helps stamp so nicely on these images.

Generation stamping is just where you stamp once (1st Generation), stamp again without reinking (2nd generation), you can even try a 3rd or 4th stamping without reinking depending on the ink type.

Blue & white colors are always so elegant & CAS, and with this lovely swirly angel, this is one beautiful card. As Maureen said, your image had even coverage, and truly sparkles. TFS
