Hello friends and happy December!  It’s a very busy time of the year between all the holiday decorating, shopping, baking and entertaining.  I guess you either love it, or you hate it.  This is Design Team member Crystal Komara here with you today.  My favorite part about Christmas is making Christmas cards (okay. . . okay. . . and drinking the eggnog)!  Today I am sharing a fun holiday themed card in which the focus is on the ombre sentiment repeated in the background.

Card details: 

The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock.  For this card I used the Christmas Wish digital stamp set.  First, I manipulated the digital sentiment “Santa Claus is coming to town” to repeat down the card from black font to a very light gray font. Then I printed this onto Neenah white cardstock.  I cut this down and adhered it to a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of red cardstock.

I die cut a row of mountains from white cardstock and adhered these over the bottom of the sentiment.  Then I die cut the tops of the mountains from silver glitter cardstock.  I printed out the ski Santa image from the Christmas Wish digital stamp set.  I colored the image with Copic markers and adhered it to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to the image for added sparkle.

I hope you have enjoyed this card.  Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!  Additionally, for more inspiration, you can follow me on my websiteInstagramFacebook and on my YouTube channel.

XO, Crystal
