Hello and Happy Holidays! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Ours was very nice, spent having fun with family. Now I'm looking forward to stamping with new goodies. ;)
My card today is another gift card holder I made the other day.
I began with a piece of Pure Luxury White cardstock and covered the bottom half with torn Post-it Notes, then sponged So Saffron (SU) ink.
Sponged Going Gray ink.
Sponged Creamy Caramel ink.
I moved the Post-it Notes to make some snow banks, sponging with Creamy Caramel each time.
I decided I wanted to stamp just the smaller of the two trees stamp, from Life is Good, and thought it would be easier to use if I cut that stamp into two pieces. I made the cut so there would be an angle that would make it easier to line them up again. It worked beautifully and they snug right up when I place them together on the blog.
I stamped the small tree a few times, using Creamy Caramel ink, stamping a second time before re-inking, to make it look like there were trees in the distance.
Stamped the tree again, this time with Chocolate Chip ink.
Inked up the top of the tree lined bank and stamped with Chocolate Chip ink, stamping a second time without re-inking.
Used an opaque white gel pen to add some snowy highlights to the tree limbs.
Stamped the grass several times with Creamy Caramel ink, only inking up the top part of the stamp.
Stamped the deer with Chocolate chip ink.
Stamped the tree from Tree Silhouettes with Chocolate Chip ink.
Sponged Chocolate Chip ink around the edges, then assembled.
The gift card base is the same size as the one in my last post, 8.5 by 10, and scored at 4 1/3 and 8 1/2 inches.
I layered the main panel with Pure Luxury Chocolate Chip and Tan Leather, and used Pure Luxury Ivory for the base.
Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
