Non Traditional Merry Christmas Brutus Monroe Products

Linda Israel

Linda here with a Non Traditional  Merry Christmas Brutus Monroe Products greeting card.

The new Christmas Stamps have arrived and I'm loving these stamps. For this project I wanted to do something different. Everyone turns to the traditional red and green when it comes to Christmas, especially if there is a poinsettia involved. Here is when I decided that I would step outside of the norm and use non traditional colors and use a non traditional source for those colors.

The Brutus|Monroe used in this project:
Summer Chalk Shimmer Sprays - Sea and Sage
Embossing Ink
Metallic Embossing Powder - Sterling
Christmas Flowers
Christmas Sentiments

Have you used the Metallic Embossing Powder - Sterling? This embossing powder is beautiful. What I like about it is that it is truly a sterling color. When heating the powder I didn't smell that normal plastic smell. It makes it nice to use since I have allergies and usually have to wear a mask while embossing, with the Brutus|Monroe Metallic Embossing Powder - Sterling I don't anymore! 

Inked the new Christmas Flowers stamp with Brutus|Monroe Embossing Ink then covered with Metallic Embossing Powder - Sterling, heat until the powder has turned shinny. Do the same with the Merry Christmas Sentiment.

Spray one or two pumps into a palette or small container of the Summer Chalk Shimmer Sprays - Sea. Paint the Poinsettias, the more color you apply the darker it will become, what lighter areas, use less. Then using the same technique with the Summer Chalk Shimmer Sprays - Sage color in the greenery.

Did you know that cotton swabs are also art tools? Use one to dip into the Chalk Shimmer Sprays - Sea and go around the edge of the foundation card, it will then give a pop of color that matches the project.

Layer the card, I used my ATG. On my card I had one drop of the spray land where I didn't want it, so I decided to make this a part of the design. Using a water soaked paint brush I dipped it into the palette and picked up the Chalk Shimmer Sprays - Sea then splattered a few drops on the card.

The card needed one last element, BLING! I have a few packages of The Paper Studio Gemstones, it was time to use these. Tip when you want to use one gem at a time, cut between the gems with scissors to cut the adhesive. Cutting the adhesive makes it easier to pick up one stone at a time. Place the gems in the center of the Poinsettias and on the holly berries.

This card is elegant and simple to make. Only a few products were used and the colors can be changed for your tastes. Next time you are about to create a Christmas card think outside the traditional red and green and try something Non Traditional and Have a Merry Christmas.
