2 Christmas Cards!
Today I have a couple of Christmas cards for you. The first is a slim line card that features the Fa-la-la stamp. I stated by using my Misti to stamp the present stamp on some Perfect Blend cardstock with Raven Detail ink. (Tip: Because this stamp is larger than my Original Misti, I used the lid. I placed the stamp on an angle on the top lid. I taped my paper to my glass mat and made sure my Misti was in the same exact spot. Then I used my Misti lid and I was able to stamp the image several times.)
After I had the image stamped out, I used a variety of Copic markers to color in the image. I decided to go with a rainbow and mixed the colors all over the image. Then I used my scissors to fussy cut out my design. Next, I used my black Copic marker to go over the edges of my cut out. This hides any imperfections in my cutting and gives the image a finished look.
Next I took a piece of Green Glitter stock and cut it down to 3.5x8.5 inches. I used the Celebrate shadow die from Christopher's Sentiments to cut out from the middle of the glitter stock. I then cut the Script part of the Celebrate from black cardstock.
My card base is a white slimline that measures 3.5x8.5" I attached the glitter stock to the front of the panel, and then using some foam tape, I adhered the colored Fa-La-La image to the bottom of my panel. I glued down the Black Celebrate Die cut and for a final touch, I used some Pearl Aqua Pigment to lightly go over some of the bows, ribbons or papers to add some shimmer to my card.
My second card is a Mini slim and is very quick to make. I stated by stamping my sentiment from Seasonal Sentiment in the middle of my 3.5" x 6.25" panel, with Raven Detail Ink. I also created a mask for my sentiment and fussy cut out the mask. Once I placed my mask over the sentiment, I used some Pixie Spray on the Peppermint swirl stencil and covered my masked panel.
Using a blender brush and some Later Gator Simon Hurley ink, I lightly ink blended the entire panel. Before I removed the stencil, I used my embossing ink to blend over the panel as well. Once I removed my stencil and mask, I covered the embossing ink with Pearl Embossing powder and heat set it.
Next I cut my panel down to about 3" x 6.25" and matted it on some black cardstock. After adhering the matted panel to my 3.5" x 6.5" white card base, I finished off the card with some clear sequins from my stash.
