Merry & Bright

Here's another Christmas quick card. To make the ornaments, I punched a 1-1/4 inch circle from the middle of a Post-It note to create a stencil and then used a sponge dauber to stencil my ornaments with Heavenly Blue ink on a 3 by 4-1/4 inch piece of White Daisy cardstock. I used a circular motion to apply the ink, leaving a little white in the centers to look like spots where the light is reflecting on the ornaments. With the stencil still in place, I stamped the snowflakes from the Let It Snow set using Moonstruck ink. The strings were hand drawn using a Legacy Writer. The peace stamp is from the Faith set, also stamped in Moonstruck. To give the card a little pizazz, I placed a 1-1/4 Circle Window Charm on each ornament. The stamped design is mounted on a 3-1/2 by 4-3/4 inch piece of Moonstruck cardstock. The edges of the Moonstruck piece were distressed with the Edge Distresser. The card base is a 4-1/4 by 5-1/2 inch piece of Heavenly Blue cardstock. Using Moonstruck ink, I second-generation stamped the background using the same stamp from the Let It Snow set.
