Bright Christmas

Hi everyone!  Yay for weekends!  I have an easy quick VERY mailable card for your holidays!
I've used a new stamp set from Market Street Stamps illustrated by the talented Stephanie Washburn.  It's called Shine On
I knew I wanted to have "colored" lights but didn't want to spend the time to color all the bulbs in so I used a technique I've shown before......stamping with the reverse side of your stamp!  I first stamped my string of lights 4 times to "connect" them across my card.  After stamping my lights on the string, I applied a piece of double sided tape to my clear block and turned my light stamp over to begin stamping my lights.  I did stamp off one time with each color before stamping my the lights a softer look.  When stamping this way, it gives the look of a glow to the lights!  I love how this turned very CAS.

I've added some glitter to the lights "heart" center (which is just a fantastic detail Stephanie did).  My white panel is popped up on foam adhesive but you could certainly leave that out to make it even more mailable! 
That's it for today....Hope you have a very enjoyable weekend!  I hope to get some crafty time in later today so I'll have some goodies to share on the blog this week!
