Hello! Wow, I can't believe how the time is flying. I'm still wrapping and getting things finished for Christmas. Busy, busy, busy!!! Here is a gift card holder I made using the train from Life is Good.
First, I stamped the train with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored with Copics, starting with N5.
Filled in with N1.
I used W3 for the smoke, Y21 for the light and E57 for the track. Then I cut the train out and set it aside.
To create the background, I cut a circle using my Nestabilities and sponged Weathered Wood Distress Ink, using a torn post-it note to mask off the foreground.
I moved the post-it note and sponged a bit more in the foreground.
I inked up the top only of the tree lined banks from Life is Good, using the same ink and stamped.
Used G24 & G28 for the trees and C1 & N3 for the shading.
I layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx and Moonlit Fog and used Heavy Base Weight White for the cardbase.
To make it a gift card holder, I cut my cardstock to 4.25 by 10.5 and scored at 4.25 and 8.5 inches. I adhered the small flap on either side added added a sentiment from Holiday Greetings.
