It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Snowman Dash – TT054 for the main image and Winter Fun! – F109, for the sentiment. Growing up in the North, we couldn’t wait to get home from school to go sledding down the hills across the street or behind our house. There was so much snow that the snowbanks the plows created were just the perfect height for us to have loads of fun! On the weekends, we would go to the much larger hills!
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. I inked around the edges with a blender brush and blue ink that I still had on it from a previous project. I don’t clean off my brushes because I have dedicated brushes for each colour group.
The image was stamped onto the inner die cut using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, which I had die cut using my Cuttlebug and paper from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock with MFT – Stitched Rec Scallop Frame dies. I coloured in the image and then added the sentiment using a MISTI, VersaMark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. This was heat embossed using a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. The snow in the sky was created using a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen and UNIPosca PC-3M White marker. Stickles – Star Dust was added to the snow on the hill and Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and DecoArt Glamour Dust were added to give some texture to the snow where the sled had been. A Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to fluff up the Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff. Once the Stickles was all dry, I pieced the 2 die cuts back together using Scotch tape on the back. U-Line double-sided tape was added to the combined piece and it was popped up onto the card.
