Ho ho ho {Hobbykunst}

Hi, everyone! I’ve got a Christmas card to share with you today, this time a slimline one, featuring some adorable selfies from My Favorite Things. I colored these up for days 5, 7 and 11 of Kathy Racoosin’s 30 day coloring challenge back in July. I love no line coloring, and these were so much fun!

I used the slimline starter die from My Favorite Things to die cut a panel of Blue Breeze cardstock for my card front. I stamped the Paint Splatter background stamp (also from MFT) using VersaMark ink, and white heat embossed using Super Fine Detail embossing powder from Ranger. I think it looks like snow, and it adds a subtle interest to the background, without being too distracting from the images.

I didn’t want to add my colored pieces directly to the blue underneath. I decided to add a mat behind each of the images, and I cut them down to be slightly larger than the images themselves. We’re talking super thin frames, I think they wound up being about 1/32″ all around. They might be small, but it was enough that I didn’t have room for a sentiment between my images, so I cut apart the Ho ho ho sentiment from the Secret Santa stamp set (also MFT), stamped repeatedly and white heat embossed the one HO directly onto the panel with the elf. I added that panel to the blue cardstock using some 1 mm foam squares and made sure to center it on my card, before adding the other two images above and below, also using 1 mm foam squares.
