Hey there! I like this time of the year because is just perfect to start working on your Holiday cards. Today is the kick off of the Holiday Cardmaking Challenge at the Hero Arts blog. I love that they do this, because it is a fun way to motivate you to start creating. I created a card for today, using some of the products included in the 2016 Winter Catalog.
I used a stamp set called Winter Scene + Die Combo to create the jar scene. I started by die-cutting the jar from Pool Mixed Layering Paper. I stamped the pine tree with Moss Hybrid Ink, and then I White-embossed the snow on the ground. I also Sparkle-embossed the falling snow. I stamped and die-cut the house and deer (Red Royal and Soft Brown Shadow Inks). I adhered the little deer with a glue dot, and the house with foam tape. I added sequins and beads details.
I stamped the jar image over acetate with StazOn ink, and I die-cut the piece with its matching die. I stamped the lid part over Blush Mix Layering Paper, and I fussy cut it. I adhere the lid over the acetate piece. After that I adhere the acetate jar over the jar scene with foam tape behind the lid. This creates dimension and it kind of simulates a real jar (according to me) 🙂
The rest of the card were a few layers of stamped backgrounds over a Snow Layering Paper card base:
- Pool Mix Layering Paper+ Hand drawn Snowflakes Bold Prints +Soft Olive Shadow Ink.
- Blush Mix Layering Paper + Berry Background + Pale Tomato Mid-Tone Shadow Ink.
- Snow Layering Paper + Candy Stripe Bold Prints + Tide Pool Mid-Tone Shadow Ink.
- Snow Layering Paper + Holiday Greetings Stamp Set + Intense Black Ink.
And the final touches: gemstones, pearls, sequins and hemp.
