Wishing You a Merry Little Christmas

It’s Day 3 of My Favorite Things‘ October previews!  Today the team -and distinguished guest- are sharing samples using Clearly Sentimental about Coffee and Seasonal Sentiments.

With Seasonal Sentiments, I’ve added one more Christmas card to my very short stack of cards for the upcoming holiday season.  (I have a lot more to go.)

I stamped my image using Fern Amuse ink, then colored over each tiny green dot using a red Sakura glitter gel pen.  It ‘dresses it up’ just enough.  :)

After stamping, I die-cut my image using Rounded Banner STAX, cut a second rounded banner and popped up the first one on foam tape.  The dotted Fishtail Flag is layered upon brand spankin’ new Fishtail Flags Layers. So excited about these!  No more trimming the skinny little edges for layering.  Love it!

On the inside, I used a second sentiment from the set and added a few more dots of red sparkle where the flourish lines intersect.
