Cindy here to share a monochrome Christmas card. I’ve decided since the beginning of the year to make my holiday cards ahead of time. And I made this one to add to my stash. Let’s take a look.
It’s a design I could make multiples in various colors. I started off by pressing and dragging my Ombre Pink to Red Ink Pad on white card stock from one end to the other (twice to cover the 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inch panel) .
Next I mixed some Perfect Pearl powder in water and used a flat brush to apply stripes of it over some of the inked areas.
Not sure if you could see the shimmery stripes. But it’s the areas that appears lighter in color. Next I used the Ornament Infinity Dies to die cut the ornaments. Lucky me, I found a color card stock that matches the inked panel and I white heat embossed the sentiment on it and cut into a fishtail banner. All the ornaments and the banner are then adhered on a Swiss Dots embossed white panel then onto a matching pink card base. Here’s a close up you could see better the perfect pearl.
