Holiday Cards, Winter Cards

Merriest Of Holidays To You | A Blog Named Hero September Challenge

Hi there, I hope your week has gotten off to a good start and that you’re keeping safe and healthy!

It’s the 15th of the month and that means there’s a new challenge up on A Blog Named Hero. This month’s theme is Clean and Simple and today I have a quick card that would be very easy to mass produce.

I started off with an A2-sized piece of Hero Hues Arctic cardstock. Using a blending brush, I blended Splash Reactive ink onto the top of the panel, concentrating the color near the edge and letting it fade out towards the middle of the panel. Next I used a small round paint brush to splatter a bit of White Glimmer Metallic ink over the background.

While the panel was drying, I used one of the dies from the Tri-Fold Edge Winter Pine die set to cut a piece of Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock. Instead of poking out all of the little round fallout pieces, I added little pieces of clear tape to the back of the trees to hold some of the pieces in.

Next I stamped a house from the Cozy Town stamp set in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and then cut it out with the coordinating die. I stamped the sentiment, from the Snowy Town stamp set, onto the snowy trees and then adhered the house with foam tape.

To finish the card, I added foam tape to the back of the snowy trees and then adhered them to the blue background, which I in turn adhered to an A2-sized card base.

Thank you so much for visiting!
