Today Deb is sharing a lovely and quick-to-make Christmas card using the always gorgeous paper from Graphic 45. Pulling beautiful papers from the Christmas Magic collection, Deb combined them in tasteful layers and then added a single sentiment using the shadow stamping technique for some added interest. Take a look:

I’m really loving Deb’s combination of paper patterns used to create this cheerful card!

The few gems and red bow are the perfect finishing touches.

Here’s a closer look at Deb’s shadow stamping, done in gray and red inks.

This technique was easy for Deb to perform using a stamp platform. Once you stamp the first image, just slide your paper ever so slightly to offset the first. Fun!

You can find Deb’s post on her bog here.
