Merry Christmas Crafters!

Hey all!  Just wanted to squeeze in a little blog post for those of you cruising the internet these holidays.
Merry Christmas
I made this card for my mother.  I always love posting my cards and sharing them with all of you but had to hold off on this one since she's probably my best follower.  This card was so fun to make!  I started with a piece of SU Vanilla card stock and embossed my Hero Arts music note stamp.  I then took some Tim Holts Distressed Inks and distressed the background until the music notes popped.  I then clear embossed my SU Dasher and distressed to make him pop as well.  I used the OWH Star Burst tutorial for my dsp layer and embellished with some Making Memories hat pins and poinsettias.  Finished it off with some letter stickers to say Merry Christmas!!  Oh, and that little bitty cute button too!

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season!  Merry Christmas!!


  1. What a beautiful card!! The colors on the starburst are so deep and rich! LOVE IT!!

    Merry Christmas to you and your family!!

  2. What a beautiful card - love all of the embossing, the papers you chose, and the starburst pattern - so elegant.

    Hope you and yours had a very Merry Christmas!

  3. Gorgeous card Samantha! LOVE the detail of the multiple embossing (dry and heat) and the distressing really makes the embossing pop. Haven't tried the starburst pattern yet but it's on my workdesk ;-)
