{Spotlight Projects} Create a Quick Christmas Card Set with Deepti

For the ARTplorations Stencil blog hop and linky party, click here.

Hello friends! Deepti here and welcome to another spotlight feature. Today I thought of using the Mixed Media Elements stamps to create my Christmas card set. It is pretty quick and easy way to create a variety in design of cards for a Christmas set.

So, here's a look into the finished card set...

I started out by preparing for my card bases and die cut card panels for stamping the plaid patterns. I made a set of 5. Then I decided on to the stamps and inks that I will use for this.

 Next I stamped the plaid pattern using the traditional colors of Christmas. How I decided on the pattern, no particular method. It was totally spontaneous.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Bell Medley set on each of the panel and adhered a die cut deer. Finally I stuck all these panels on the card bases.

It took me about an hour to finish all the cards, not bad at all LOL !! Here's the finished close up into each card :)

That finishes my spotlight feature :) I hope you enjoyed it and will give this a try. Happy paper crafting!
