It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Santa In Chimney – S202 for the image. Christmas is only a few months away, so I’m busy making more Christmas cards for this year to give away! How about you?
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″. DCWV – Holiday Cheer was cut to the same size and applied to the base using double-sided tape. The image was die-cut using Anna Griffin Empress Mini Cutting Machine, My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was stamped onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. Once it was coloured in, I applied some Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff to his beard and then heat set it with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool to make it puff up. Stickles – Diamond was applied to the Coat trim and hat, as well as the roof. Stickles – Gold was applied all around the die-cut to create some extra sparkle. Stickles – Star Dust was applied to the insides of the background flowers and some snowflakes. Once everything was dry, I added some U-Line double-sided tape and popped up the main coloured image onto the base card. For the sentiment, I die cut Recollections Christmas Ink Jet Printable Glitter Paper with the Anna Griffin Empress Mini Cutting Machine using Jolly Quickutz – Deck the Halls limited edition gift set. I applied Scrapbook Adhesives – 3D Foam Strips to the Sentiment and popped it up onto the card to finish it off.
