Christmas Thank You Card

I used one of the WMS frame stamps but inked the reverse side around the edges for a 'grunge' or distressed-looking frame, added the holly and berries.

For the pine branches, I masked the frame area and then stamped off randomly; some branches are stamped off and some aren't.

I used my Crop-a-Dile to punch the two circles on either side of the berries, and wrapped PTI baker's twine around and through the holes, tied in a knot.

Also, I applied glue to the outer edge of the frame, holly leaf tips and berries, then "frosted" with SU Dazzling Diamonds glitter.

Thanks for visiting!!


  1. This is a lovely card - like how you've run the thread through it!!

  2. Wow - what a concept - inking the reverse side of the stamp! Love it; can't wait to try it, Nancy. You have the wheels spinning now. LOL!

  3. What a great idea, and I love how the branches look peeking out!

    Beautiful card!
