It’s hard to believe that Christmas is less than two weeks away! I am not ready. I haven’t finished my shopping and I haven’t even felt like it’s the Christmas season this year. We’ve been watching Christmas movies and listening to Christmas music but it all just feels weird this year. I know it will all fall into place and we will have a nice Christmas, but this whole years has just been strange!
We decorated last week and this year we just put up a small tree. We are remodeling and things are a mess. When we go our our yearly RV trips, I buy ornaments from the places we visit. I love to add them to the tree and it always brings up fun memories from our trips.
So, on to card making! I’m pretty much done with making Christmas cards so I’ve been moving on and playing with a few new stamps sets that I haven’t been able to use yet. This set is from mft stamps and it’s been out for a while, but I just picked it up recently.
For the front panel, I used a bubble background stamp from Hero Arts. I then die cut out a circle and added a frame.
For the background I used some ocean themed paper that I had in my stash and then I die cut some white card stock with a die I have that looks like fish scales and I layered that on top. I then adhered that to the front panel.
I stamped the images and colored them with copic markers and then glued them into the circle.
For the sentiment I stamped “You are mermazing” and propped that up on some foam strips. I added a little heart and then matted everything in navy card stock. I adhered it to a white card base.
I think it turned out cute and it’s a nice change from Christmas cards!
I hope you are staying well. See you next time!
