My Christmas Card 2010

Merry Christmas! I sent out 160 Christmas Cards this year and it still wasn't enough to send one to all the special people in my life! So consider this a Cyber Card for all of you who check my blog regularly. I wish you all the happiest of Festive Seasons and many blessings throughout the New Year. Blog land would be a very lonely place without you all!

I decided to use a stamp from a non-Christmas stamp set this year. The swirly stamp is from Elements of Style, and I've used my favourite Christmas red, Cherry Cobbler. To get the 2 shades, I stamped it twice without re-inking. I gave the whole card some shimmer by mixing some Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint with some Isocol (rubbing alcohol) in a spray bottle and giving the card a quick spray. I've tried to capture the effect in the second photo, but it looks much better in real life!
I hope you have a lovely day, surrounded by loved ones!
