It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Joy Ride – TT002 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Good Times – GLL006 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Christmas is always a wonderful time to gather with family and friends. Thinking of snow right now is also a way to cool down with all of this summer heat too! LOL!
To make my card this week, I began with a card base made from AC White Cardstock cut and scored to be 6″ x 6″. I chose Echo Park Paper Co. – My Favorite Winter (6″ x 6″) for my background paper and trimmed just a little off of the sides. Then, I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Blueprint Sketch and inked around all of the edges. I added some glue to the back of the paper and applied it to the base card. Using My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out, I die cut a larger square from Recollections – Burgundy cardstock and a smaller square from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I inked around the edges of the larger square with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Aged Mahagony and applied 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of it and applied to the background. I die cut the sentiment label with My Creative Time – Stitched Rectangular Frames Dies and More. The image and sentiment were then applied using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I applied Stickles – Unicorn around the edges of the label and set it aside to dry.
I coloured in the image with copic markers. Then I added Stickles – Eucalyptus to the lady’s cuff and collar and Stickles – Crystal to her hat and pompom. For the man, I applied Nuvo Glitter Accents – Fresh Snowfall to his hat and pompom. Lastly, I added some Brutus Monroe – Snow Paste using a spatula to the bottom outer edge of the image to represent a snow bank on the side of the road. Using a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen, Gelly Roll Sakura #5 Pen, Glitter Glue Pen and DecoArt Glamour Dust, I created the snowy background. Gelly Roll Sparkle Pen was used to colour in the Holly on the wreath.
Once everything on the image was dry, I applied some glue to the back of it and applied it directly on top of the larger square. I applied some glue and some 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the sentiment and applied that on an angle at the top of the card. I only put the tape in a few spots so that it would be the same height as the image. To finish off the card, I added some CC Designs – Dragon Dreams Enamel Dots on to the sentiment and some sequence.
