It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using Ugly Sweater Time – SLF025 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Ugly Sweater Time – FFL025 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. I have a few ugly Christmas sweaters, that I love wearing at Christmas time. How many do you have? LOL!
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 main background paper from Hot Buy – Recollections – Jewel Tones to be the same size and applied this directly to the base card using double-sided tape. Your Next Stamp – Winter Knits patterns were cut to the size of a little over .5″ each x 4.25″ and applied to the top and bottom of the card using double-sided tape. My Cuttlebug and My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out were used to die cut PhotoPlay – Tulla & Norbert’s Christmas Party paper to the size of 4″ x 4″. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough was applied around the edges and double-sided tape was used to adhere it to the base card. The large oval was die cut using my Cuttlebug, Hero Arts – Infinity Die Ovals and Hot Buy – Recollections – Jewel Tones paper. This was popped up onto the square using U-Line double-sided tape.
With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped both the image and the sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was die-cut using my Cuttlebug and Hero Arts – Infinity Die Ovals. I coloured the image in with Copic markers. The sentiment was die cut with Whimsy Stamps – Quick Strips Die Set and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough was used to ink around the edges. The coloured image and sentiment were both popped up onto the card using U-Line double-sided tape to finish it off.
