Hello everyone and welcome back – Chris here with you today featuring one of the cute stamp sets of the current Holiday Release. Do you have enough Christmas cards? I don‘t and I‘m always too late, but this year I have decided to be well prepared.
- Merry Makers stamp set
- Snowy Countryside Scene Die
- and the street lamp out of Merry Carolers stamp set
For this card I wanted to create a different layout – I didn’t want a „normal“ circle so I decided to create a „hole“ with my Plotter – I just cut out twice in different sizes to get a litte shadow. On the upper layer I put on some snowflakes with a stencil from my stash and a white stencil paste (from Lawn Fawn)
After this I stamped all images on water colored based paper and colored them with Distress reinkers. I always love to use my color pencils and a white pen to set some highlights and shadows. For the background I used Oxide Distress ink (Peacock Feathers) and add the houses from the Snowy Countryside Scene die.
I have cut out the images with the coordinating dies and arranged all cuties on my card base and glued down with 3d foam tape or cut out the images twice to get more dimension. The sentiment is embossed with white embossing powder on a red label. That‘s all.
Hope you like my little Christmas card inspiration.
Happy crafty time.
