It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Winter Friends – TT048 for the main image and Jingle All the Way – H040, for the sentiment. Snowmen are one of my favourite images to colour and how adorable is this happy snowman singing to his little friend?
To make my card this week, I began with a card base of 6″ x 6″ using AC Cardstock – White. I adhered American Crafts – “Kringle and Co” 6 x 6 in. cardstock to the base front. Red and green cardstock were cut to the sizes of 6″ x 1.25″ and 6″ x 1-1/8″ from some spare paper I had. I adhered the green to the red using double-sided tape and some glue to allow me to centre it. The combined strip was put through a Xyron Create a Sticker to keep it flat. I added this combined strip to the card approximately a .25″ up from the bottom. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rustic Wilderness was used to ink around all of the edges of the card and it was set aside to dry.
Using my Cuttlebug and paper from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card, I die cut the frame with Gina Marie Designs – Loopy Oval die cuts. The image was stamped onto the die cut using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the image and then added the snow in the sky using a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. Stickles – Crystal was added to the snow on the ground and along the branches to give it some sparkle. I set the image to the side to allow the Stickles time to dry.
I cut a piece of Recollections Christmas Ink Jet Printable Glitter Paper to the size of 4″ x 1″. Using my MISTI once again, I stamped the sentiment onto it using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and then cut a fish tail on each end. U-Line double sided tape was added to the back of the sentiment and then it was popped up and centred in between the red and green stripe. U-Line double-sided tape was added to the back of the image and it was popped up onto the card above the sentiment once the Stickles had dried. Lastly, I die cut 2 pinecones and some pine leaves using my Cuttlebug and dies from Stampin’ UP! – Pretty Pines Thinlets die set. Liquid glue was used to pieced them altogether. I adhered these to the 2 upper corners of the card and then applied some Stickles – Crystal to the leaves to finish off the card.
