Hello! Today, I will briefly describe another card that I made for the Online Card Class: Merry Making. I had previously posted this card on my Flickr account in order to submit this “homework” in time.
For this card, I took a (European) standard sized card panel and scored evenly spaced lines using my bone folder and a scoring board (mine is from Martha Stewart Crafts). I then stamped the biggest poinsettia from Holiday Bouquet by Avery Elle onto the scored area – making sure that the ink would not go into the crevices. I used Memento ink in the colour Tuxedo Black and coloured the image with my Copic markers. The colours are R24 (for the berries), R27, R29, Y35, and YG17.
The sentiment was taken from Lawn Fawn‘s Merry Messages and was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink to coordinate with the poinsettia.
It was difficult to colour the image without accidentally going into the crevices. I had a Post-It taped to the edge of the crevice – which worked fine to some extent – but at a closer look, you can see that the colouring is not very neat next to a scored line. In addition – and I think that this is due to the fibres of the paper – the colour “bled” a little into the crevices…
To finish the card, I trimmed the panel a little bit (I took off about 1mm of each side) and adhered it onto a red cardbase. For a little sparkle, I added some gold sequins and used some ZIG Wink of Stella Glitter Brush Pen (in clear) and added some glitter onto the middle section of the poinsettia.
It was fun to make this card and I think the scored lines make the card look funky :-). Unfortunately, the “3D effect” of the scoring cannot be seen on the picture… I like the card nevertheless.
Thank you for stopping by! See you soon!
