It’s hard to believe that the month of December is about to begin, so I think today is a good idea to start sharing with you one of the Christmas cards that I have made so far using Fun Stampers Journey products. This card was made using a nice stamp set called Holiday Joy along with the Branch & Cone die set.
I began this card by making the background. I know is a bit hard to see but I used a Fresh Sage cardstock panel, and using a small dauber dowel and Whip Cream ink, I created a bokeh effect. It is actually a ver subtle effect that lightens the color underneath and makes it softer and uneven. It is really pretty in real life! Once the background panel was completly dried, I Gold-embossed the sentiment. I adhered the panel over a Oatmeal Cookie cardstock panel and then, onto a Fresh Forest folded card.
The pine branches were die cut from Green Olive cardstock, and the pine cones from Oatmeal Cookie and Hazelnut Blend cardstock. I arranged the shapes and adhered them using a bit of Journey Craft Glue, Glue Dots and Foam Squares to add a bit of dimension. To finish up this card, I used Gift Twine, Sparkle silk and some Gold Friendship sequins.
Always Christmas cards are so much fun to make, no matter what technique, type of products you use, or colors! I like to improvise, and also enjoy my projects as I create them! How about you?
