It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using Chillin’ Charlie – TT049 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Moo-rry Christmas – FDG002 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas release is being celebrated this month at High Hopes Rubber Stamps.
To make my card this week, I began with a card base from Recollections – Winter 4.25″ x 5.5 (Assorted Box of Cards). I cut Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Navy Blue paper to the size of 3-5/8″ x 4-5/8″. The 3.5″ x 4.5″ background was cut from Heartfelt Creations – Festive Winterscapes Collection. I inked around the edges of the base card and background image with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Faded Jeans. The sentiment was added to the base card using Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and my MISTI. The ink was embossed using my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. I applied the 2 cut pieces together using double-sided tape and then popped them onto the base using 3M double-sided tape. I had some branches pre-punch from earlier from various green cardstock using my Martha Stuart – Branch punch. I applied liquid glue to the backs of each of the branches and applied them to the popped up background.
With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then I fussy cut around it. For the hat trim and pop-pom, I used Ranger – Emboss It Pen Clear and sprinkled on some WOW! Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter. I heated this with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool and then repeated the process to give it more texture. The image was popped up onto the background using 3M double-sided tape and a few small Ranger Snowflakes were added. Lastly, I added some Stickles – Diamond to the snowflakes on the background and in the centres of the smaller snowflakes to complete my card.
