Hi, crafty friends. I have another Christmas card to share today, you know I can’t get enough of them. This time, I’ve colored up Letter to Santa from Rachelle Anne Miller and made a blue card with red details.
I colored up the scene using Copics, then used the largest die in the Slimline Double Stitched Rectangle STAX die set from My Favorite Things to add faux stitching to both sides. There’s no reason you can’t use slimline dies for an A2 sized card, and this worked out really well, the die was the perfect width for my image.
I used a black glaze pen from Sakura to get some shine and dimension into the eyes of these cute critters (you can see it in real life when you tilt the card in the light, I promise), then sprinkled on Stampendous chunky white embossing enamel that I melted from the back of the panel.
Using lots of foam tape, I adhered my panel to a top fold card base I created from Blueberry Sky cardstock from Papertrey Ink. This blue is gorgeous, and it’s perfect for the B90 Copic family.
I white heat embossed a sentiment from the Christmas Greetings stamp set from Lili of the Valley onto a piece of Amarena Cherry cardstock from My Favorite Things. I cut the sentiment down to a strip and added it to the card using foam tape.
To finish off the card I added a few die cut heart outlines. These are from the Wax Seals die set from Waffle Flower. There are two different sized hearts in the die set, I used both for this card and cut them from Amarena Cherry cardstock before adhering them to the card.
Simple color palette for this one. Lots of colors used for the snow, that’s pretty much a given when I color snow.
