Christmas Greetings from around the World

This year Crimson Cloud brought out this beautiful Language Background Stamp which says Merry Christmas in languages from all around the world from Japan to Africa - this is surely what Christmas is about?

I used it to make this scroll card here’s how:

Stamp and emboss the Language Background stamp in onto a piece of card stock much wider than the stamp with enough excess card to make the scroll ends. Age with a little of Tim Holtz’s Stormy Sky Distress Ink.  Attach Blue Wrinkled Edge Ribbon to the both ends of the card and roll the card  to create your scroll.

Glue in place with Cosmic Shimmer clear glue - you will only need to hold in place for a few seconds to allow the glue to hold.

Cut out two Spellbinders Fleur DeLis Rectangles  

and overlap and glue in the centre. This you will lay onto a piece of cardstock embossed using Creative Expressions Crackle Folder

This should also be ‘aged’ with Stormy Sky. 

Tap your Versamark ink pad over the scroll and rolled edges and sprinkled with some crystal embossing powder. Heat to ‘glaze’ the background sheet and highlight some of the scrolls. 

Layer up using mounting tape arrange your Blue Wrinkled Edge Ribbon and secure with Crystal Hat Pins from Creative Expressions. 

A few gem stones to decorate the glittered cardstock and you are there - your own "Starry, Starry Night".
