Christmas Card Focals


There are times when one needs to make some quick cards - and Christmas is often one of those times.  It helps to have card focals prepared ahead of time and ready to go.  These were inspired from a challenge on the Paper Wishes Message Board. The reindeer was a small stamp from Hot Off the Press.  The word "Magical" was a part of it, but the word "Christmas" came from another set.

These were made by stamping with VersaMark and then heat embossing in various colors - gold, copper, red.  I used Smooch inks to color in the images - and added a bit of Stickles for the nose and eyes where I wanted a bit more of a "pop".  

I look forward to using these to make some quick Christmas cards, and I hope to find time to make a lot more using other stamps.
