Over The Moon Monday - Christmas Cards

Good morning and welcome to another Over The Moon Monday. I have been off work for a few days, so it's going to take me a little while to get back in the saddle, so to speak. I had a productive few days, though. I had some stuff that needed doing at home, but with hubby always underfoot it never seemed to get done.

Today I want to share one of the Christmas cards I have been working on. The stamp set is from Dream Impressions. I don't think they are still in business. I got the set used online. I really like it. I stamped the building onto glossy cardstock, and masked it. Then I masked the bottom part of the cardstock with post-it notes. I brayered an aqua blue onto the top part of the cardstock, then blended in a darker blue towards the top. Then I removed the masks.

I stamped the large star in the sky and heat embossed it with gold. I used glitter glue in the center to give off a star-like shine. I used a white gel pen to make stars in the sky.

For the bottom part of the cardstock, I used various brown markers to make the ground. I wanted it to have a sand-like color, and the textures of the markers on glossy were okay for this application.

I stamped the wise men onto regular cardstock, colored with markers and cut out, adhering them to the card background.

How are you coming along with your Christmas cards? Will you be done in time to mail them out? I have found I'm a little behind, so now I'm rushing to play catch-up. But I'll get them done.

Have a great week!
