It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Friends Snooze – TDG013 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Friendship – FDG023 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Pop on over to High Hopes Rubber Stamps and see all of the wonderful new images as we celebrate our Winter Friends Release!
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″. I cut the background paper from American Crafts – Jack Frost to be the same size and attached it directly to the base using double-sided tape. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Chipped Sapphire was used to ink around the outside of the card. Using my Cuttlebug, My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers, My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies, Gina Marie Designs – Nested Scalloped Stitched Rectangles, I die cut the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card, Scrapbook.com – Peppermint Smooth Cardstock and Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Ice Blue Pack. Using U-line double-sided tape, I popped up each of the layers onto the card base.
Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock and the sentiment onto Recollections – White cardstock. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then added some Stickles – Diamond to the parts of the snow to make it sparkly. Gelly Roll Sakura #5 Pen was used to create a starry night sky. I added U-line double-sided tape to the completed image and popped it up onto the card. The sentiment was die cut using my Cuttlebug and Poppystamps – Christmas Quotes. I inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Chipped Sapphire and glued it onto the top of the image at an angle to complete the card.
