It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using Havin’ A Ball Snowman – S147 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Brr… – FDG004 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Brr…. – Winter is coming soon!
To make my card this week, I began with a card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cut to 4.25″ x 5.5″. I cut out the background from Heartfelt Creations – Merry and Bright Collection and sized it to 4″ x 5.25″. Adding double-sided tape, I adhered this to some yellow cardstock. I cut around the yellow cardstock and left a very thin border. Lastly, I applied some double-sided tape and glue and attached it to the base.
With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image and sentiment with Copic markers. I ran the sentiment through my Xyron Create a Sticker and then I fussy cut around the image and the sentiment. Using a black pen, I outlined all of the edges for the image and sentiment, except in the snowy area. I peeled off the backing to the sentiment pieces and adhered them to the card front. I glued the snowman image in place at the bottom of the cut out background. I applied Stickles – Sea Glass to the Sweater cuffs and trim and a little bit in the snow at the bottom of the snowman. Stickles – HIbiscus was applied to the hat trim and pom pom. Stickles – Diamond was added to the snowballs and Stickles Crystal, Diamond and Stardust were all added to the snow to finish off the card.
