Countdown to Christmas 2019: 11 weeks!
Hello friends! I hope you’re having a good week 🙂 I’ve finally starting adding stock to my Etsy Shop and added this Set of 4 Christmas cards on Monday:
The Corrugated 3D Embossing Folder gives great texture to the green cardstock and the punch from the Perfectly Plaid Bundle makes cutting out multiple trees for the card fronts super easy!
When making multiple cards of the same design I always prep all the bits and pieces so that putting them together is much faster. The greeting ‘Merry Christmas’ actually comes from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set which I’ve used for another card:
There are always quite a few steps to follow! Here are just a few of them:
I love how the metallic ink adds a golden shine to these leaves:
This effect was achieved through two step stamping. STEP 1: stamp the tree outline in red; STEP 2: the second stamp fills in the leaves using this gorgeous Delicata Golden Glitz pigment ink:
Whenever possible I try to tie the writing panel inside the card to the front of the card. I did it this time by stamping the same tree that’s on the front of the card but in a different colour:
Thanks so much for taking some time out to visit me today! If you have any questions please ask and I hope this gives you a little inspiration! Megan xo
