Deck the Halls with Elzybells!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

You all know that rubber stamping and cardmaking is one of my favorite things to do, but making CHRISTMAS cards definitely tops them all! Especially when you can create with stamps as adorable as the sweet little "Elzybells" by AMuse.

This card is a standard 5-1/2 x 4-1/4", but I have cut 1-1/2" off the bottom front. The patterned paper is much brighter in real life and has a glittery sparkle to it. After coloring the image with prismacolor pencils, I put a clear glaze on the ornaments and star.

I hope you're all having a JOYful week! Smiles, Pam :)

What a charming little card you've made here! I have that same glittery paper and have been hesitant to use it because it seems a bit too "busy". Now that I see how you've used it, I will give it a go! Love your stitching! Nice job, great quote:) TFS
