Hello friends, Lisa here. I hope you’re all doing well at this most wonderful time of the year. Do you have your holiday cards finished yet? As you can see, I’m still working on mine so I’m a little late getting them in the mail this year. I thought I’d pop in to The Ton blog today with this card I made for a dear friend of mine. I was trying to achieve a simple retro feel by using traditional colors and the largest ornament from The Ton’s gorgeous Holiday Ornaments stamps.
For this card I used the following supplies from The Ton shop:
- Holiday Ornaments Stamps
- Holiday Cones (Coordinating Outlines) Stamps
- Christmas Wreath Builder Stamps
- Holiday Word Dies
- Double Stitched Rectangles Dies
- Inks: Soft Garden, Bright Fern, Deep Emerald, Valentine Red, Blue Diamond, clear Versamark
- Glass Slipper Couture Mix
- Kuretake Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers: Haze Blue, Light Blue, Mid Brown
- Embossing Powder: Ranger Gold, Ranger Tinsel, Ranger Clear
- Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen
After stamping and coloring the background using Holiday Cones Coordinating Outline stamps, I watered down some Gesso medium and flicked it across the panel. This created some wonderful textured snow. I stamped and clear embossed this large round ornament from the Holiday Ornaments stamp set. There is so much fabulous detail in this ornament and the shiny clear coat of embossing powder really makes it pop! The Holiday Word dies lend a lot to the retro feel of this card and the holly and berries from the Christmas Wreath Builder set is the perfect sized embellishment for the ornament.
Just a reminder:
