Come Ye Faithful

The Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says was to do masking. I chose to make a Christmas card and I used Altenew Stamps for my design. I also colored my image in with Zig water color markers and fussy cut them out.

I am a real fan of poinsettias so of course, I had to use the image from the Altenew Poinsettia & Pine set. I masked the poinsettia off using Post-It notes and then added the holly leaves and the pine needles. It was then ready to color with my Zigs.

I used the sentiment from the Altenew Lyrical Script set with this card. I just love the big bold sentiments and I know they will be used on many of my Christmas cards this year.

I die cut a panel of white and red with the Memory Box Cross Stitched Frame Borders Style No. 99124 and layered them onto the base card of white. Next I added the cut image over the top of those two frames. My last step was to add some yellow and green rhinestone gems to the card.

This card will be entered in the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge-Mask It
