If you saw this card the other day then you are already familiar with the lantern stamps included in the new Asian Garden Additions set. But do you know that they can be used as Christmas ornaments, too? That's what I saw, anyway! I used the pretty scroll stamp from Seasons of Love - Tags to make a branch. I first stamped the top part of the ornament, carefully making sure to not ink the chain part of the stamp. I thought it looked more like an ornament top that way. I then stamped the lantern and used clear embossing powder on both parts. Because I seemed to have lost my silver pigment ink pad, I inked the top in red and went back in with a silver paint pen after it was embossed. It worked well and it looks like a real ornament!
There you have it! My first Christmas card of 2010! Thanks for stopping by, I am the last stop on the waltz today. And thanks to everyone who left me such nice comments while visiting this week. It was fast and furious, but it was oh so fun! Now off you go to shop, shop, shop!
