Addicted To Stamps & More #318...

Hi! The new challenge is up at the Addicted To Stamps & More blog. This week the theme is

I made a Christmas card as inspiration.

I used the Kaleidoscope technique again. The original technique is by Jennifer Mcguire and you can find the post here. Since I don't have the wreath builder template by Gina K, I made my own out of some sturdy file board. Then I dug out the Christmas Decors set by Mudra Craft Stamps and Warm Wishes Tia by Some Odd Girl. I used Altenew and Memento inks to stamp the snowflakes and created my own kaleidoscope background.

I trimmed the panel and die cut a window towards the top right corner. The sentiment is from the Christmas set my Mudra Craft Stamps. I stamped it with Memento ink and then heat embossed with Ranger's Holographic EP. The blue sequins are from my stash. I created the shaker and then mounted the whole thing on a bright blue card base.

Here is a closer look at the card.

I hope you are inspired by my card. I look forward to seeing your creations in our gallery. Please do visit the Addicted To Stamps & More blog for more inspiration and to link your entries.
