Merry & Type on Christmas Collage

Have you started making your Christmas cards yet???  
Here is a fun one to do.  
So loving the Christmas Collage bg stamp, it can be used alone or layered with other images.
Here it is stamped with Versa Mark on v.vanilla cs and then colored with the pastels.
Using a cotton ball choose the color of pastels and rub over the stamped image.
By using the Versa Mark the pastels stick to the image and make it pop.
Then I stamped the Merry and Type ornament stamp on top with the c.cobbler craft ink
and embossed with clear embossing powder.  You could also just stamp the image
with the c.cobbler classic ink.
I also stamped the 25 in a.artichoke ink and punched out with the 1 3/4" circle punch
and die cut the a.artichoke cs using the circles #2 die and the 2" circle.
I distressed the edges of the stamped front and inked using a sponge and soft suede ink.
Mounted it onto a c.cobbler card.  The greeting is in the stamp set A Christmas Carol.
