Christmas Card Design #2

Last week I share my first design for my Christmas cards I will be mass producing this year. I came to a decision that I will use a few designs to make a set of 10 or 20 cards. That means I will have a variety of designs instead making a 200 cards using just one design.

Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog. This is my second design. All the products I used to make these cards are from Taylored Expressions. This post is photo heavy because I did change up the design a bit to make a set of 10 cards. I will also share couple of closeup photos of each card. Towards the ens of the post I will link all supplies I used to make these cards. Make your self a cuppa and enjoy.

Sending Hugs!

Rain and cold is back again with the wind. Where is Spring? Two days of sunshine and five days of rain, cold and wind. Great day to stay indoors with a cuppa of chai and craft. That was exactly what I did today. Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog. Today was such a productive day that I made a set of 10 Christmas cards (design #2) and this card using Altenew’s new Gilded Ombre washi tape.

These large or should I say wide washi tapes from Altenew are just so beautiful. I bought the Gilded Ombre, Galaxy Washi and Watercolor Nebula tapes from the latest release. I was drawn to the Gilded Ombre tape and decided to play with it. The purple is gorgeous but the gold vein take the cake. The challenge was to showcase the tape as much as I could  on the card. So I adhered the tape diagonally across the white panel. This panel is 3.75″x 5.50″ in size. I adhered gold foil strip of cardstock on left end of the panel. This gold strip ties in with the gold vein on the tape.

To complement the purple ombre, I stamped the florals and leaves from Frosted Garden stamp set using the Shades of Purple ink set and Bamboo and Parrot inks form Tropical Forest ink set. They were die cut using the coordinating die and adhered using glue and foam adhesives to make a large cluster on the left of the panel.

To bring the purple from the Gilded Ombre tape to the left side of the card front, I adhered the tape on the card front on the card base with the dark purple showing on the extreme left side. Then I adhered the floral panel on the right side of the card front using glue. For the sentiment, I used a scrap piece of paper to adhere the Gilded Ombre Tape and white heat embossed the sentiment from the Frosted garden stamp set. Then trimmed the sentiment and adhered as shown. I finally added clear shimmer to the flowers and Lilac Whisper Nuvo glitter drop to bring the whole card together.

Once the card was completed, I was so happy to see with the colours and the layout of the card. It turned out quite well. The complementary colours of purple and green are gorgeous along with gold. After working on a few blue coloured cards over couple of days, all the rich purple colours were beautiful to the eyes. I have listed all the products I used to make this card below for your convenience.

Feliz Navidad!

Hello everyone,

Sharing a Christmas card using Happy Owlidays with Evelin T Designs stamp set and coordinating cutaways from Winnie & Walter.

I started with stamping all the images from the stamp set on watercolour paper and colouring them all with Zig Clean Colour Zig pens. Then I used Prisma colour pencils to add shading to the watercolour areas.

For the background, I die cut a watercolour panel using the largest rectangle die from Essentials: Katherine’s Cutaway. Then sponged Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon, Tumbled Glass and Cracked Pistachio distress oxide inks. To this background, I used the Scenery: The Big Bang Circles creative screening, to add snow. I used this stencil twice with white pigment ink for subtle snow on the background and with Nuvo Moonstone  as the third layer for some sparkle and texture to the snow. Then I also spattered some Copic opaque white all over the panel. I left this panel to dry while I worked on the sentiment.

The sentiment from the stamp set is white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock, trimmed and adhered to the bottom left of the panel. The using foam adhesive and glue, I adhered the branch, owls and decorative ornaments as shown in the photos. This panel is now adhered to the light grey card base. Then I brushed the ornaments, scarf and hat with clear shimmer and Nuvo crystal glaze. That is all! The card is finished. 

All the supplies used to make this card are listed below. Hope you are inspired by my Christmas card today. If you make a card inspired by my card, please share and tag on social media.
