O Come Let Us Adore Him


Today's card was created for the latest AAA Cards Challenge. I was so excited to share this one because I just received this beautiful stamp in the mail this week after snagging it from a fellow crafter's destash online! This image is a wood mount Inkadinkado stamp and I love the quiet serenity it portrays. I'm a huge fan of fall and winter so images like this one really resonate with me. I stamped the image onto some Copic-friendly cardstock using Memento tuxedo black ink. I did some very minimal coloring using only my B60 around the trees to mimic a lightly overcast winter sky, some C0 and C1 on the rooftops of the chapel, and R56 on the door for a nice little pop of color. I die cut the image using a stitched rectangle die from Gina Marie Designs and then stamped the sentiment from the Taylored Expressions Sing Of The King stamp set using Versafine onyx black ink. I added some 3M foam tape to the back and popped the panel up off of the plain white card base. Once the panel was adhered onto the card I added some glue using my Zig two-way glue pen to some selected areas of the image and then sprinkled on some beautiful white glitter by Wow! for some additional sparkle. I love how pretty it turned out and hope you like it too!

Perfectly lovely. I like the starkness of the black and white broken with that lovely glitter. Such a classic design. It's fantastic!
