I created this super fun card using a slightly less traditional color scheme. I absolutely LOVE this Very Merry stamp set from Simon Says Stamp! I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers and used a couple of washi tapes in black and gold to get a cool, modern vibe. Spectrum Noir's Glitter brush pens added the perfect sparkle to the ornaments and the stars!
