It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Snowy Smiles – RR003 for the main image. Winter is one of my favourite times of the year and the beauty of fresh snowfalls always make me happy as long as I don’t need to shovel. LOL!
To make my card this week, I began with a card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Crafts – Sparkling Stickers – 02-3068629 was applied to the base card. I cut out Heartfelt Creations – Celebrate the Season Collection paper and inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet and a finger dauber. This was popped up onto the base card using U-Line double-sided tape.
The image was stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. I coloured in the image and then fussy cut around it. With a black marker, I inked around the outside of the image and then added U-Line double-sided tape and popped it up into the centre of the circle on the patterned paper. I applied the Crafts – Sparkling Stickers – 02-3068629 to a scrap piece of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock to match the background base paper.
With my Cuttelbug and Birch Press Designs – Big Joy dies, I die cut the sparkly scrap piece of paper and another scrap piece of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I coloured in the larger die cut with Copic markers and then attached the 2 pieces using liquid glue. U-Line double-sided tape was added to the combined piece and it was popped up onto the card under the snowlady.
I cut off the backs to 3 buttons from the Dress It Up – Holiday Collection – It’s Cold Outside and then applied Nuvo – Glacier Paste – Pixie Wings to them to give them a purple shimmer. Once the glacier paste was dry, I attached them to the card with liquid glue.
