Countdown to Christmas 2020: 10 weeks!

Hello friends! With just 10 weeks to go until Christmas I’ve decided that I need to focus on designing cards for my Etsy shop. I can’t always tell what will be popular so I try to put in a variety of different cards: 

This Brightly Gleaming Specialty Paper is beautiful and has seasonal images and all-purpose patterns with copper foil accents on one side: 

I was able to cut 6 card fronts from one 12″ x 12″ (30.5cm x 30.5cm) sheet; this ornament pattern is gorgeous!

The paper coordinates with the Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack and I used the larger ornament on the front of the card and the smaller one on the inside:

Mossy Meadow is a rich, dark green that’s in the paper pattern so I used that ink colour to stamp one ornament and the sentiment from Itty Bitty Christmas:

To coordinate with the copper accents in the paper, I stamped the smaller ornament with Delicata Celestial Copper Ink:

I thought these were all the pieces I’d be using on the card:

But I decided to add some copper foil accents on the top left hand side of the ornament using Copper Foil, the Sprig Punch and a retired star stamp:

And a close up:

MEANWHILE … Eider Books (I’m part of the publishing team) received its latest publication back from the printer; another happy author!! 

If you haven’t visited my blog before I want to thank you for being here ? I love to share a little weekly inspiration (most weeks!) and if you have any questions I’d be very happy to answer them! Have a lovely weekend, Megan xo
