Joy to the World

By | December 14, 2017

Hi there

It’s hard to believe I have just over a week left of work for 2017 and then I get to be on holiday.  I’m really looking forward to two weeks off and not having to set my alarm :).

Here’s a card I made at one of our team trainings.  These training days are great as we get to play with product that we don’t have and it gives us a chance to create samples to share with you.  I don’t own this set so it was nice to be able to create a card with these dies.  The dies and the sentiment are from the Hearts Come Home Bundle.

There are three different images in this dies set – one was cut out of Basic Black, another Basic Gray and finally Smoky Slate.  Together they form a cute little ‘village’ scene.  To create some depth for this card each layer is adhered with dimensionals.

To create the sky background we stamped the moon image with VersaMark and add clear embossing powder to our Shimmery White card stock.  Using an Aqua Painter and Soft Sky ink we lightly ‘washed’ over the card stock giving the gentle blue tint.

The sentiment is stamped in Memento Black ink with a Rhinestone added for some bling 🙂

To finish the card off we wrapped some Fresh Fig 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon around the front and tied a bow.  The card base (Basic Black) in folded at the top so that the card stands nicely.

I still have a few more Christmas creations to share so keep an eye out over the coming week.
