Christmas Blessings for JUGS #266 Chalkboard Technique

I decided to make a Christmas card with the challenge at Just Us Girls #266.
I tried several different DSP before settling on the green one from Pebbles Welcome Christmas 6x6 pad.  The red is some scrap paper I had.  I cut the black from DCWV Chalkboard Stack with a Spellbinder's A2 Divine Eloquence die.  The sentiment is from Verve Christmas Blessings, the star border from Verve Borderline and the holy is from Inspired by Stamping Festive Frames.  I stamped them all in Versamark ink and used white embossing powder; then I smeared some white ink around to look like chalk dust.  I added some gold rhinestones to the stars and mounted this panel with foam tape.  The card base and mat are MFT Smooth White CS.

Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment.

Happy Stamping,

  3. I love the way the curly cues on the paper mimic the edging of the die cut! So pretty! Love your new photo!
