Holiday Cards

Holiday Hugs From Many Miles Away

Hi there, I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Today’s card uses an adorable set from Elizabeth Craft Designs and a sentiment set from Mama Elephant. 

I started by stamping images from the Elizabeth Craft Designs Marshmallow Snowmen stamp set in Copic-friendly Hero Arts Intense Black ink onto Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock.  I colored the mug with RV10, RV23, RV25, and RV29.  I also used RV29 for the candy canes.  For the snowman’s candy hat and buttons, I used BG02 and BG05.  For the cocoa, I used E13, E23, E25, and E29.  When I finished coloring, I die cut the images using the coordinating die set.  I also used an Xacto knife to cut out the inside of the mug’s handle which was not cut out by the die.

For the background, I blended Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide inks onto a 4″ x 5.25″ of Strathmore Bristol Smooth.  Then I used a small paint brush to splatter white gouache onto the background to create a snow-like feel.  I heat embossed a small star (using one of the stamps from the Marshmallow Snowmen set) using white Hero Arts embossing powder.

I stamped the sentiment, which is from the Mama Elephant Puffy Holiday Greetings stamp set, in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink onto a scrap of Neenah Solar White.  I fussy cut it out and then assembled the card using foam tape to adhere the die cut pieces and the sentiment the background.  Then I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thanks so very much for coming by!
