How to make your holiday cards sweet!



Every time I think that Karen Lockhart has come up with the most adorable illustrations, she goes and does it again! Just take a look at this fantastic candy wreath! The coloring on this goes very quickly, and the deeply-etched rubber lends itself so well to the incredible detail on this image. Anyone who receives this is going to be filled with sweet thoughts about your stamping prowess!

You can't see it here, but I also used a Sakura Clear Glaze pen to give the wrappers an extra little effect. You could also use a Stardust or Spica pen for a glittery effect - either way, it gives an extra texture to your creation. You can see, too, that when paired up with this Basic Grey paper, you get the added bonus of even more sweet candy!

This Lockhart image, along with the others from this latest release, are now available in your local store (although, if yours is anything like mine, they're going fast!)

Happy Monday - be well,
