Hello everyone! I am back with a card that I did for Day 1 of the newest Online Card Class: Merry Making. I know that I am a little behind, but better late than never :-).
For this card, I used Distress Inks in the colours Peacock Feathers, Faded Jeans and Black Soot with a ink blending tool to create the background. With a paintbrush and clean water I made circles at random spots to create a Bokeh effect.
I took some stamps from the set Winter Village by Lawn Fawn as my main images. I stamped them with Versamark ink, a sticky ink that enables me to heat emboss. I poured white embossing powder onto the stamped images and heat embossed them with my heat gun. To create the snow-covered rooftops, I used a white gel pen to colour them in. In addition, I created some “ground” for the houses by drawing fine lines, so that they would not look as if they floated.
The sentiment was created using Lawn Fawn’s Scripty Happy and Nuvo Glimmer Paste. First, I took a small piece of cardstock and covered it with Nuvo Glimmer Paste in the colour Silver Gem. I let it dry for about an hour and then die-cut the sentiment with my die-cutting machine.
To complete the sentiment, I took the word “holidays” from Lawn Fawn’s Happy Happy Happy, stamped it with Versamark ink onto a piece of vellum, put white emossing powder on it and heat embossed it. The sentiment was then cut with one of the banners from Everday Sentiment Banners (also by Lawn Fawn). Everything was glued together using Tombow liquid glue.
This finishes the card. I hope you like it.
Have an amazing day!
