M&M Designz - Santa Baby & Tree

Well, I'm ready to share my 2nd M&M Designz DT card with you. I spent a couple days on this one getting the lights just the way that I had pictured them in my head. It's really hard to see it in the picture but the lights have a "raised" effect. To achieve this I used a clear glaze pen and in the end had put on a total of 5 thick coats. I really wish I could get a good picture to show you what I mean. But no matter how I took the picture it just would not come out right. I wanted to keep a simple design for my card so I found design paper in my stash that had different Christmas sayings on it and used that as the background for my card. Then I simply added 3 red gems and green ribbon to dress it up just the tiniest bit.
The image that I used is called Santa Baby & Tree and was created by M&M Designz. Judy and her mom make some really amazing digital stamps. This one is available for purchase at Digital-Ink Co for just $2.25.

I also have some very exciting news to share with you. I am now a DT member for Digital-Ink Co!!! The next challenge will take place on November 30th. So please stop by that day to meet the new DT and to find out what the challenge will be.

Mary, my love

This card looks so sweet, and I love the word art paper that you used with it. That was a very nice touch. I can see the effect of the lights when I click on the image to see it in full size. You did a great job on that!! Thank you so much for making this lovely card!
