Can you believe it’s only 3 months until Christmas? Wait, what? I’m asking myself, are you sure? Yes, I’m sure. Yikes! It’s a good thing I’ve already started making some of my Christmas cards!
This first card was super simple. I stamped the snowflakes and the greeting with Versamark ink and then heat embossed them with white embossing powder. I then stamped the ornaments, one with Red Royal mid-tone ink and the other two with the Soft Granite mid-tone ink. Then I added a little color with a green gel pen. I also brushed on the Wink of Stella clear glitter pen to add shimmer to all three ornaments. I used the die to cut them all out and then I strung silver and white string/thread so they look like they are hanging. The ornaments are adhered with dimensional foam squares to add some depth.
On this second card, I first added distress inks to the background with an ink blending tool. Then I put the Leaf & Floral stencil over the background paper and used the ink blending tool to apply the Soft Granite ink for a tone-on-tone effect. I then stamped the trees with Forever Green and Green Hills mid-tone inks and used the die to cut them out. I stamped the greeting with Forever Green ink as well, and then adhered all the trees. The middle tree is adhered with dimensional foam squares. I also added a little bit of color to the middle tree with a red gel pen. I finished it off my adhering the panel to a white notecard and adding a few gems.
On my last card, I once again used the Leaf & Floral stencil with Soft Granite ink on white cardstock – I used the same technique as I mentioned above. I purposely used less ink when pouncing in the center of the stencil. I then used the Hero Arts Alphabet die to cut out the letters from red cardstock. I added a layer of Glossy Accents to make them shine. I also cut the stars from gold and silver glitter paper. I assembled the card and called it done. 🙂
