Its a dashing Christmas card!

It is over 100 degrees outside but Christmas in my heart!  I just love Christmas music, I can listen to it year round.  Today’s card is a little more Christmas in July.  I love the new Dasher stamp set on the under $10 list, I hope to be able to earn the level 2 Dasher Decor Element to make a fun Christmas decoration.

When I sat down with the stamp set, I decided to try and work some more on my brayering.  The hardest part was trying to figure out what colors to use.  When I figured out the colors I wanted to use the card put itself together.  For the sky I inked up some saran wrap in first navy and then silver and then I used a little silver around the ground.


Stamps:  Dasher

Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Taken With Teal, Not Quite Navy, Night of Navy, Basic Black and Silver Encore

Paper:  Brushed Silver, Whisper White

Accessories:  Whisper White Organza, Night of Navy Grosgrain, Clear Rhinestone Brad

Tools: Horizontal Slot, Crop-a-dile, Saran Wrap, Brayer, 1 1/4 inch circle punch, Post it note

Pin It Now!
