Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #348


Creating a quick Christmas card with the soon to be retired, Reindeer Crossing, stamp set.  I so love the December Stamp of the Month.  I know many of you are super organized and already had your Christmas cards created by the time this set was released.  Now is the time to snag it for your holiday scrapbook pages and to get a head start on next year's cards.  I always create Christmas cards all year long, so that I have a ready stash of unique cards to send out. I created this card based on the sketch challenge at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge-


All of my images were stamped with Espresso Ink and then color was added with Copic markers.  After coloring my pine boughs, I added a little bit of Diamond Stickles for some added shimmer. If you have yet to see the December Stamp of the Month, here is the complete set-


You can add this set to a qualifying order for only $5!  The set retires at the end of the month, so don't delay!  Don't forget to check out the great deals during our Boxing Week Sale!  New items are added at midnight (MT) each day!  Great deals to be had!
