Today, I’m featuring a Christmas card from Dreamerland Crafts new Christmas release called We Wish You A Merry Christmas – D20012. This card features a little kitten helping his friend celebrate the joy of Christmas giving.
To create this card, I first die-cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and Creative Expressions – Festive Frames – Snowball. I separated the 2 pieces of the die-cut and using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black, I stamped the image onto the paper and coloured it in with Copic markers. I stamped the sentiment using VersaMark ink. The sentiment was then embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail and Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat set the embossing powder. Once this was done, I added all of the snowflakes in the sky using a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen and also Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen. For the snow on the ground, I used a mixture of Nuvo Glitter Accents – Fresh Snowfall and Stickles – Crystal. This was then set aside for a few hours to dry.
For the frame, I used Cosmic Shimmer Opal Polish – Summer Sky. It was my first time using this polish and I just love how it turned out. Once the snow on the image was dry, I flipped the 2 die-cuts over and attached them back together using some clear tape on the back.
The card was now ready to assemble. For the card base I used The Paper Studio – Primary Base Colours 4.25″ x 5.5″. I added some double-sided tape and some glue to the backing of the finished frame and image and attached it directly to the card base.
