This month I have been busy with family moves and not too much stamping, but I did spend a little time in my workroom, creating and playing with ideas for Christmas cards. Today I want to share with you one of the cards-
This card was fun to make – I like coloring and with various shades of green blends (Soft Succulent, Just Jade, and Evening Evergreen) I colored in the leaves and boughs of the Festive Foliage background stamp which was stamped using Evening Evergreen ink. The card base is Soft Succulent.
*A quick tip here- Whenever I am going to create multiples of the same card, such as Christmas I always pull out my Stamparatus and find as many ways to use it as I possibly can in making the card to make the process quicker and easier. For this card I used it to stamp the background image.
To create the illusion of added layers without the layers, I pressed the edges of the card stock directly to the ink pad, I did this both with the focal layer as well as the thin strip that the greeting (from Tidings and Trimmings) is stamped on.
Thanks for stopping by, I have lots more cards to share, so stayed tuned!
