Hi you all! Okay, okay, okay. Are you ready? I’m gonna gush a bit about the stamp I got to use to make my sneak peek card so brace yourselves. Have you ever looked at something and thought “Oh, yes that is perfect!” Well that is exactly how I felt when I saw this collection. From the stamp, the patterned paper, down to the embellishments in the collection each item just made me more excited to start playing! I could go on and on but I am sure you have other things to do today so here is what I did with this collection and a little sneak peek for what is coming this week:
using Lawn Fawn jet black ink I stamped the image from LDRS Christmas Post onto Neenah 80lb cardstock (I’m finding that my Copics don’t bleed as much with this weight of paper)
using Copic markers I colored the image
using Frosted Lace Stickles I filled in the white of her hooded shawl and the snow. I also covered the snowflakes with it as well. (I used Frosted Lace because I wanted something that would dry more white and less clear but still be very sparkly.) If you have Nuvo drops then you would want to use White Blizzard
using the patterned paper from the kit I decided that I would make a square card (a lot of Christmas cards I hand out rather than mail so this will definitely be one, but you can always make your own envelope if you need to mail it. I just could NOT bring myself to cut down that scene. The card front base is 5.5″ x 5.5″ (keep in mind you’ll want to double that when you make your card base so that it can be folded in half) the next sheet is 5″ x 5″ then the Merry Christmas sheet is 4.75″ x 4.75″ and the sheet the image is stamped on is 4.25″ x 4.25″
also in the kit was the little wooden embellishment that glued down on the bottom right hand corner with Ranger Multi Medium Matte. I colored it in with Nuvo drops in woodland green and ruby slippers for the berries.
another embellishment in the kit were some heart stickers so I added a white little heart to the mailbox
I hope you enjoy this sneak peek! I had so much fun making this card and I cannot WAIT to give it away! Thank you for stopping in today and I hope you make it back for a bit each day to catch a glimpse of the other sneak peeks coming in for you! Also, join us next Saturday, November 30th for the blog hop.
