Merry And Bright w/Kara

Hello! Kara  here and I'm starting to build up my Christmas card stash so that when the time comes I am all set and am not scrambling to get my cards done. I thought a few small stamps from the new Butterfly Mandala set could make a beautiful holiday background!

I started by making a light pencil line vertically in the center of my card panel. I used that line as a guide for stamping the leaf and bud stamp in a straight line. Once they were stamped straight it made filling in the rest very easy to eyeball. You could certainly draw more lines with your ruler to get them absolutely perfect, but I think it turned out great.

I added a bit of color with my Copic markers to the leaves and buds as well as to the Merry in this awesome sentiment from Be Merry. I added a bit of shadow to it with a die cut piece in black cardstock. It helps the sentiment stand out from the background.

I think this design is easily reproducible for mass production. It's bright and festive with just a minimal amount of coloring! Thanks for stopping by. Have you started your holiday cardmaking yet?
