In honor of World Card Making Day,

I am doing a blog hop today. I decided to make the same Christmas card using 3 different techniques. For this card, I used the brand new "Holy Night" from A Muse Studios. I really love this set!!



For the above card, I used white embossing powder on the image. I love how it came out on the dark cardstock. The base card is the brand new color "Pebble" and I think its my #1 favorite of all the A Muse cardstock colors right now. Perfect for Christmas cards!!









For this card above, I embossed the stamps in black embossing powder. Then I masked around the main image and airbrushed the background using one of my blue Copic markers. I also loved how this came out.


Last but not least, I tried out the new cherry woodgrain cardstock for the base of the card. I stamped the images in regular Memento black ink on Sugar cardstock. I wanted a little blue on this one so I just smudged some of my Ocean ink around the edges and in the middle. I added gold stickles onto the star.

For the next card in the blog hop, go here
