Hi! Christmas card is probably the last thing you want to see right now, then Spring is slowly starting to show its face. But I'm going to share it anyway. Sparkle N Sprinkle Christmas Baubles Stamp Set is just too beautiful. I used both, rubber and digital sets, on my card.
Inks: Versamark [VM001], Memento Dual Marker (Tuxedo Black), Distress Ink (Hickory Smoke);
Adhesives: Sakura Glue Pen [Quicky], Dimensional Glue , 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape [SAT01];
Cardstock: White, Pattern Paper;
Others: Adhesive Backed Snowflakes [SQAF15];
I love Sparkle N Sprinkle Digital Stamp Sets because they come with pre-colored images. On the Christmas Baubles Digi set you have several colored pictures to choose from. I picked three baubles and foliage and re-sized them to match my needs. After printing and fussy cutting them with scissors, I covered the baubles with Versamark ink and Clear Embossing Powder. Boubles get nice shiny finish after the powder was melted with the heat tool.
I printed two copies of the same foliage. One was fuzzy cut without pine branches. I wanted to add some sparkle to the foliage as well. I drew tiny lines with Sakura Glue Pen to them and added Gecko Microfine Glitter to the Holly Leaves and Shamrock Microfine Glitter to the Pine. Berries ware covered with Dimensional Glue and Cloud Nine Microfine Glitter.
The sentiment is from Christmas Baubles Rubber Stamp Set. It is stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Blueberry Embossing Powder.
The background is made out of scrap pieces of pattern papers. I distressed the edges of each paper with scissors and Hickory Smoke Distress ink. Both blue papers were ripped in two. After assembling the background, I sprinkled a bit of Vanilla Ice Embossing Powder here and there and heated it with the heat tool from underneath the paper.
I love glittered matting layers behind the background. For that, I adhered the 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to the edges of the matting layer. After placing the background to the center, I covered rest of the tape with Reflection Microfine Glitter.
To add more interest to my card, I used three Adhesive Backed Snowflakes. I covered them with Cloud Nine Microfine Glitter. Then I cut them in half and tucked them behind the pattern paper layers. I also added some Dimensional Glue to underneath some parts of the ripped paper and covered the glue with Reflection Microfine Glitter.
