My first card was made with sort of a chalkboard theme (I love white pigment ink on black cardstock). I stamped the tree with Fancy Tree and Unicorn White Pigment Ink, then stamped the sentiment (from Merry Christmas Messages) with Versamark and Hero Arts White Embossing Powder (my favorite for a crisp, clean sentiment). I also took out my colored pencils and added some color to the flowers and holly leaves. I think this is a great card to reproduce…it’s festive, but not complicated.
The color is really subtle, so here is a close up:
My 2nd card is 5 x 7” and was made with my new Hero Arts Swirl Tree Stencil. I know it’s difficult to see on screen, but it is totally sparkly IRL! I mixed a little green ink with White Embossing Paste for the tree, and before it dried, I added clear glitter. My sentiment is also from Merry Christmas Messages, stamped with Versamark and Liquid Platinum embossing powder.
Here’s a close up of all that sparkle:
