Hi everyone, I hope you are well. I had fun creating a Christmas Card this morning. Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge is now live for June and I wanted to play along. I had this idea for a few days and finally sat down to create.
I started by die cutting my curved edge and used a pencil to trace where it would sit on my card. This gave me an indication of where I needed to blend my background and place my trees.
With my die cut piece, I decided to use 'True Snow' paste. I applied it quite 'roughly'
using a palette knife, sprinkled on some sparkly glitter, then set it aside to set.
I die cut my trees. I wanted a random snow look for my trees. I pounced my versamark ink pad over the die cuts then sprinkled on some Shabby White Embossing Enamel and WOW Mint Macaroon embossing powder. I held each tree with tweezers and heat set the powders from underneath. When using the enamel, it is best to heat underneath first (make sure your heat gun is warm) so you eliminate lots of flyaways.
I sponged some Broken China Distress Ink onto my back panel and used my MISTI to stamp my sentiment. I really liked the Mixed Media feel to my card but keeping things still looking quite simple.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges
