Christmas Pastries

Hello, my friends! Thanks so much for your patience and for your well wishes. My father is doing okay. I hate to burden you with details, in short, he is functioning as normal and is in as good a state as we could hoped for as of now. I have decided that I should go back and visit as often as I can and there will be more two-week absence on commenting from me in the coming year. I apologize ahead of time for that and thank you for your understanding. =)

On to today's card. One more card made using a beautiful image from Whiff of Joy Stamps' November release.

I first trimmed a piece of Papertrey Ink's Rustic Cream cardstock to size then stamped the new Christmas Pastries image and sentiment from Sweet Christmas set using Stamp-A-Ma-Jig (must have tool for stampers!). The image is colored with Copic markers.

I stamped the text from Essential Backgrounds - Text Style set with Antique Linen distress ink then inked the piece with Antique Linen and Tea Dye distress inks. The very edges of the paper is inked with Gathered Twigs distress ink from Tim's Limited Edition Fall 2011 ink set. Some Antique Linen Distress Stickles is then applied to the edges of the piece.

The edges of the inside of the card is finished the same way except that I stamps the bell image from Christmas Accessories set for a little interest.

A very simple card this time. Hope you likie! =) Don't forget to check out the fabulous new releases at Whiff of Joy Stamps!

Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!
