Here's my first card, I did a batch of these as you will see ....
I began by stamping the Holly background using the JustRite stamp onto white cardstock, using a versa mark ink pad and then heat embossing with white powder. I cut out the image and used a dauber and Memento London Fog ink pad to emphasize the white image I had stamped.
To make the central panel. I stamped the JustRite Merry Christmas Ornament stamp twice using the versa mark ink and black embossing powder then used a heat tool to emboss it.
I cut it out using a Spellbinders Circle Die. I then cut out the centre piece of the image. Backed it with foam tape and laid it on top of the first full image to add depth and dimension.
I cut a small "V" at the top of the bauble where the bow of the image was, so that when I added the "dotted string" it could be seen to be attached to the bauble.
I created a bow using the Sue Wilson Lattice and Classic Bows dies.
I used the Larger and the middle sized bows layered on top of one another, backing the white lattice with black cardstock.
On the inside of the card I stamped a couple of images, at the top and bottom corners using the Hampton Art Reindeer Joy clear stamps and black memento ink.
I made a few, here they all are covered in plastic ready to take to the shop in Dorrigo where I sell them (or keep them until I need the in late November for posting)!!
... and there you have it!
Here are the main ingredients that I used to make this card:
Thanks for stopping by, I have made a few more Christmas cards so I will share them over the next few days.
