On one of my last posts I said I had planned to make a card from scraps but decided I wanted different paper. Well . . . this time I'm actually going to do it! I used my scraps from the Home for the Holidays blog hop and created this card. I used Robin's Nest Christmas Glitter Swirl (which I believe is not available, but a comparable paper that is just as pretty and the same weight is the Red Glitter Swirl), and Christmas Glitter Words (back side) scraps to create this card. The Christmas Glitter Words is one of those papers that I love because of the texture. The feel of this paper is so rich, similar to the linen feel paper I used on my "Give Thanks" card.
Having these scraps made the card so easy to make. I simply used a stamped image (and as you can see, I don't have many Christmas stamps so I just altered a palm tree stamp - I mean we are in South Orange County and it was sunny and lovely today, so it fits!) and after coloring it with distress inks and water brushes I adhered it to my Glitter Swirl paper and then to a piece of white cardstock and then onto my card base which is the Christmas Glitter Words (link above). I love this because it has a masculine look to it. So don't throw those scraps away . . . use them!
If you click on the picture below you can get a close-up view of the texture of the card base paper.
