Mermaid Holiday Cards

Stamp the mermaid and starfish images onto plain white paper. Color the images with pencils and markers and add a touch of sparkle with coordinating glitter glues. Fussy cut the images with scissors. Finally, die cut a coral Christmas tree from Serengeti Lt. Green paper distressed with a variety of green inks.

Here is another card created with some of the same techniques. I paired the Lagoon mermaid with a Christmas Thyme (2016) wreath, Shades of Winter (2016) snowflake, and Holiday Mail sentiment.

Sometimes it is fun to see your stamps in a whole new way. Have fun experimenting with all sorts of mash-ups!
