Lavina Christmas

Happy Friday friends!  As my “Countdown to Christmas” continues, today I’m bringing you a card I’ve made using some “new to me” stamps!  I have sent this card out and wanted to make sure it was received before I posted it and so now I can share…

Vicki-LavinaChristmas

I’ve been very intrigued with seeing some of my blog friends out there using these very magical silhouette style stamps and loving what they’ve come up using them!  So I decided to make a purchase or two or so of these and have a play!  🙂

I’ve used the Christmas Eve and the Stars 2 Minature Lavina World stamps for my card design here.  I’ve stamped the images out over some white cardstock with a Navy ink and then used some blue distress ink to sponge around the edges with.

For the layering of this card, I’ve used the Spellbinders “Chantilly Paper Lace” die along with some of my regular oval shaped dies.  I’ve also used an older Die-Versions “Believe” die cut for the sentiment.  That along with the large background panel were cut from some Silver Mirror cardstock.

The oval layers in the background were matted with some Silver Glitterstock along with some Navy cardstock which is also what was used for the card base.  I’ve added a silver metallic ribbon bow at the top.  I based the size of my card with the die cut so it is more of a 4″ x 6″ sized card rather than a standard A2 size.

Here’s a closer view of the image where you can see that I’ve added some Stickles “Star Dust” glitter in certain areas on the tree as well as the star on top.

I also covered the bottom of the image panel with a glue pen and then sprinkled on some dazzling diamonds glitter to give the appearance of snow on the ground.

This isn’t my usual “coloring in” cute style that you’re used to seeing from me, but I really enjoyed putting this one together and playing with my new stamps!  I hope you’ve enjoyed it as well!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I’ll see you again soon!

  1. Well, you have most certainly outdone yourself with the layers and beautiful papers on this GORGEOUSLY magical creation, Miss Vicki! The mirror cardstock, silver glitz, and Wonder of the Season with those pretty images makes me sigh with happiness! I think I hear fairies calling me from the Christmas Tree room NOW! (oh boy!)

    Before I go play with the fairies, I’d like to say something else: I enjoyed seeing your pretty card at Lavinia World Challenges >. Hope you join us frequently in the future.
