It’s never to early to start thinking about Christmas cards! The girls over at Christmas Stamping All Year Long want to help you get inspired with some challenges!

You can see this week’s cards —> HERE

This week’s challenge is a recipe:

2 layers
3 buttons

I used a ATG gun to apply the copper glitter on the border. If you put a piece of scrap paper over the top (after you shake off the excess) and rub it into the tape runner glue it sets it nicely so you won’t have much “glitter shedding”.


Copic markers used:


Stamps: J1902 Holly Wreath, Season’s Greetings – Stamp N Plus Scrap N
Paper: Bazzill Simply Smooth White, SU! Confetti White
Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento, Ranger Distress
Accessories: Copic markers and Multiliner, Copper Glitter, Scrapbook Adhesives from 3L, ribbon from Offray
