Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

Hi Everybody.... Regina here today to show you a square Christmas card I made using the Comfort and Joy Holiday Card Kit stamp set and the Snowflake Stencil. 


I don't make a lot of square cards but sometimes when I'm using a 6"x6" stencil and I want to keep most of the background, I'll make it square.  This card base is 5-1/2"x5-1/2".  

 

 

I started by using a sheet of this pretty gray cardstock from the Kaleidoscope Wings Inspiration Kit.  An alternative would be to use the Lunchbag cardstock that is the Kraft color.  I wanted to use the Snowflake Stencil and make it glittery and dimensional.  I decided to use some glittery embossing paste.  You just spread the paste over the taped down stencil with a palette knife, get the excess off to put back in the jar and then pull off the stencil carefully.  It needs to dry for a few hours so keep that in mind when using this, but it's worth it.


Next I grabbed a cup of Gevalia Mocha Latte (because it is expresso coffee) and sat down to color some of the stamps in the new Comfort and Joy Holiday Kit. I colored with Copic Markers, just using 2 reds and 2 greens.  I use Xpress It Blending Card when coloring with Copics. I decided to fussy cut them out which was a little bit of a challenge with the holly leaves but I took my time and was able to do it.  I popped these up with Scrapbook Adhesives Black 3D Foam Squares.  


I embossed the Merry Christmas sentiment on Wagon Cardstock with Ultra Fine Alabaster Embossing Powder and cut out with a banner die. 


To finish it off I added some gold glitter Stickles to the center of the poinsettia and glossy accents on the berries. 


This was a fun card to make!  Grab the coloring media of your choice, a stencil and make a beautiful Christmas card.
