The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Beautiful Christmas Ornaments with Watercolor Card

Hello everyone!  Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have a beautiful and elegant watercolor Christmas card to share with you.

Here is the card I designed.  I use two stamps from the Penny Black Most Wonderful stamp set.  I used VersaMark Ink with Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder to heat emboss the image.  I inked just the top half of the Christmas stamp with the snowflake so I could used the word Christmas.

I used Distress Markers and a Faber-Castell Mix & Match Water Brush to watercolor the ornaments and the background.  All of the marker colors are listed below.  Then for a little sparkle I used the Zig Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen in all of the white spaces on the ornaments.

I used A2 Matting Basics A and A2 Matting Basics B die templates from  Spellbinders Paper Arts to cut/emboss the mats.  Then I layered the pieces and added them to a green card base.  The beautiful gold cardstock is Bazzill Gold Mirror Cardstock and it is perfect to use with all of your holiday cards.

To finish off the card I added a few Sequins Crystal Iridescent 5mm.

Please be sure to check out The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store for all of the fantastic paper crafting products and the Blog for inspiration from the Design Team.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
