Hello, fellow crafters and happy Friday!! I hope you are doing well!!
I have a fun Christmas card to share with you today!!
I began by die-cutting all of the elements different cardstocks. The trees were cut from green cardstock using the Pine Tree Cover Die, then Basil Mojito Ink was blended onto the edges. The globe and base were cut from blue and frosted silver cardstock with the Round Snow Globe Dies. I blended some Parisian Blue Ink onto the edges of the globe to give it some dimension. The deer were cut from white sparkle cardstock with the Deer Cover Die. I also hand cut the the snow drift from that same white sparkle cardstock. I splattered some diluted white gouache onto the trees and globe to mimic snowfall. Once that was dry, the globe was assembled as shown.
For the background, I die-cut the Slimline Star Coverplate Die from white cardstock, trimmed it down and adhered it over a panel of white sparkle cardstock, then to a top-folding cardbase. Since the die is intended to be used on a slimline card, I die-cut the Rectangle A2 Frames Slim Borders Coverplate Die from frosted silver cardstock and used one of the frames to cover the edges.
I stamped the Christmas Bows stamp set with Red Sangria, Valentine Red and Noir Inks, then cut them out with the Coordinating Die. The Easy Expressions Holiday stamp set was stamped with Valentine Red and Noir Ink, then cut out with that Coordinating Die. The smallest bow and sentiment were popped up onto the base of the snow globe with foam tape.
I had so much fun mixing and matching different products to make this card!! I hope I’ve inspired you with some of your Christmas card making!!
Have a wonderful weekend!!
