Some years ago someone left an inexpensive New Testament at my door, and immediately I removed the binding and brushed gesso on all the pages. I handed these out at my entry level class on Bible Journaling, as newbies are reluctant to start in their actual bible. Some pages were left over, and I occasionally will use one - like today!
I brayered Pool Party ink, then lightly sponge-brushed white acrylic over everything. Used a sponge dauber to stencil some designs with Coastal Cabana ink. Used White Craft ink and White embossing powder to add the trees. Die cut the star & words. Die cut the snow bank, then used a paper piercing template to evenly space the border holes. Assembled on a card blank made of mixed media paper, then added Stickles and left for lunch so it could dry.
I am happy with the experiment; all it needs now is a 9x6 inch envelope...
Thank you, Dagmar - and enjoy seeing how you inspire our Community!

Fabulous CASE I always love stamping over text, but I think it's especially great that you did that for a Christmas card. Love the colors you used here and those tree stamps are gorgeous. Super impressed with the paper piercing -- I don't think I could have done that well even with a template. As Roberta said, this is a Wonderful Winterland, indeed.
