QCAS Christmas card with ink blending

Hello everyone. I'm back with a quick as well as clean and simple Christmas card.

I had stamped the text using one of my sister's stamps (Lavinia, if I remember correctly) when I was visiting back in October. I simply used a circle mask to do some ink blending with distress inks and added a bow from another stamp set in my stash. I drew the string using a Sakura mikron pen and a ruler.

I'm linking up my card at:

December Card Chain Challenge Reveal - Peace Love Joy

Hello everyone! Wishing you all a wonderful 2023 full of peace, love, joy and miracles!

It's the 2nd of the month, which means it's time to reveal the cards of the December Card Chain Challenge. My card went to Julia Aston in the US.

We were playing Tic Tac Toe this month, and I picked the diagonal line from the top left: green, bird, friendship, splats, silver.

I used a smooshed background from my UFO box and stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment and birds from a NBUS stamp set by Avery Elle (Noel). I had been admiring this stamp set for a long time and was able to snag it in a sale a few years ago but never got to use it until now. I used my much loved SSS stitched rectangle die to die cut my panel and adhered it to my white card base.

Do pop over to the Card Chain Challenge blog to see all the other cards that were exchanged this month and consider joining us for our January exchange. You still have 4 days to register for this month.
