I finally finished my card for #getcrackingonChristmas for Jenn Shurkus‘ monthly challenge, using Claire’s Card On Christmas Card Challenge monthly theme of “background stamp” as my starting point! I had the image colored in already so managed to put it together during nap time, and now racing against the clock to share this card before little R wakes up!
To create this card, I started by embossing the Falling Snow Background from Honey Bee Stamps using white embossing powder. Next I inked it up using distress oxide inks (in chipped sapphire, broken china and salty ocean), buffed it to let the white pop through again, added some gold paint splatters, and set it aside to dry.
Next I colored the wreath from Pretty Pink Posh’s Winter Wreath Stamp Set using copic makers, then embossed it using gold embossing powder and die cut it using the coordinating die. I die cut a banner from some blue card stock, and embossed a sentiment from the same stamp set and added it behind the wreath, and added the wreath to the inked background with foam tape. Lastly I added some jewels from the Holiday Jewels Mix.
If you made it this far, thank you! If you are inspired by any of my work please tag me on Instagram as I would love to see your recreation!
