Text-y Christmas

I've always loved type, fonts, and printer-themed stuff. The writer in me gets all giddy. Text-y type projects seemed to jump out at me as I was looking through some magazines, so I pulled out my fonts and played around. This is one result.




Pretty cool, eh? This alpha is from Art Warehouse and I love how the letters are all distressed and interesting...perfect to stand alone (with a little bling, of course).

Edited to correct the stamp manufacturer.


Supplies
stamps: Art Warehouse
ink: SU old olive, cherry cobbler
paper: PTI white

  4. You do continue to have such good ideas on keeping cards simple and uncluttered. It gives me so many ways of experimenting with the computer. Thank you for sharing.

  8. Love the card - I also love using fonts as the focal point. Unfortunately, my sister dated someone called Noel, so we're not allowed to use this sentiment! LOL!

  9. The simplicity of this is superb. I don't know if it is an optical illusion but the border of all the letters seems to glisten. Very cool.

  11. Such a great card and I love the font! However, when I checked with the owner of Impression Obsession, she said the alphabet set unfortunately was not hers -- do you have any further information on the stamp manufacturer?

  12. I love, love, love this card!

    But, you know what? It's making my fingers itch that you didn't put the bling over the "ë" in Noël.
