It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card for some friends overseas using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Canadian Christmas Greeting – R048 for the main image and Merry Christmoose, Eh! for the sentiment. The trees were added in using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Evergreen Tree HLF001 and Evergreen Tree 2 HLF002.
To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. The sky was added directly to the front of the base panel with a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass and Broken China and a Gina K. Designs blending brush. Lawn Fawn – Snowy Sky stencil and Stampin Up – Winter White were added next to create some falling snow in the background. Then, using the same stencil again, Brutus Monroe – Snow Paste was applied to add some glittering snowflakes. The sentiment was stamped onto Recollections Christmas Ink Jet Printable Glitter Paper using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black. The paper was then cut to be 5.5″ x 1″ and I tore along the top of the paper to create snow drifts. I did this once again with a larger size (5.5″ x 2.5″) to create some dimension. U-Line double-sided tape was added to both pieces, with a double-layer on the sentiment piece and they were both popped up onto the base card.
The images were stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool, Memento – Tuxedo Black for the main image and Memento – Cottage Ivy for the trees. After colouring the images, I fussy cut around all of them and popped up the main image behind the 1st snow hill. Liquid glue was applied behind the trees and they were tucked in behind the larger hill to complete the card.
