Sending Christmas Wishes
by Robin Tharaldson

PS Full With

This card features a design strip made with the circles stamp from the Studio Blotter stamp set. I used my stamp positioner, red and green ink and and moved my cardstock repeatedly to make my design. Then over top I used VersaMark ink and gold embossing powder. I used gold glitter paper to cut Poppystamps Sending Script die and heat embossed my stamped sentiment, from Poppystamps Christmas Greetings stamp set.

Here are directions for making the decorative strip.

Step 1A

I started with my red ink, stamped the image, and moved my paper one inch, up or down, for each impression.

Step 2A

I moved my starting point up a half inch and stamped my first green impression. From there each impression was one inch up or down.

Step 3A

I moved my starting point up a quarter inch, stamped my first Versamark impression and used gold embossing powder. From there each impression was one inch up or down. I stamped three impressions with Versamark and then heat embossed; repeated until my strip is covered; then trimmed the strip down into two pieces. I used a Memory Box Notecard, in Cranberry, as my card base and then splattered it with gold paint. Added my sentiment strip and adhered Sending to my card!
