Christmas Card for a Friend


Hello! It's never too early to make Christmas cards and I decided to make this one with some Power Poppy stamps...both clear and digital ones.  I printed the wreath from Wreath Succulent & Baubles digital stamps and the Merry Christmas sentiment from Chickadee In Barberry digitals on White CS.  To make this a special Christmas card for a friend, I stamped the friends sentiment from Sassy Succulents clear stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I colored the wreath with Copics G000, G20, G82, BG11, BG05, BG72, and Y28 and added some sparkle and shine with Wink of Stella and Clearstar Pen.   I used a Gold Simmer Metallic CS for the base and a layer of White CS that I colored the edges with Copics to coordinate with colors in the wreath.  This is a quick way to have a coordinating CS that is a perfect match. 

Challenges:
Power & Spark Challenge: August Mix and Match Challenge-combine ANY KIND of Power Poppy stamp sets: Clear with Clear, Digital with Digital, or if you’re really feeling adventurous...Clear with Digital.  I used 2 digital stamps from 2 different sets Wreath Succulent & Baubles and Chickadee In Barberry and 1 clear stamp from Sassy Succulents.
