Hi there, I have another Christmas card to share this week using a Stampendous bird stamp which is not actually a Christmas one but as you’ll see, he looks very cute turned into a robin. I’ve also used another piece of my snowflake masterboard paper that I shared back in August so I’ll add the materials here and there will be a link to find out how I made it.
You Will Need:
Tim Holtz Mini Holidays Set 4 – For the sentiment
Kraft Card Blank or make your own
Scrap of Olive Green Paper
Stampendous Creative Palette or similar
Distress Inks – I used Antique Linen, Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar and Milled Lavender
For Stamping Paper:
· Once you’ve made the paper, cut a piece to partly cover your card blank. Distress the edges and stick on.
· Stamp the minuet bird on stamping card with the coffee ink. Colour with pencils and trim to a panel. Add the panel to an olive green mat.
· Next stamp the sentiment on stamping card also with the coffee ink and cut out the words separately. I did this to make it fit more neatly on my card but you may not need to do this if you choose a different shape card blank.
· Assemble all the elements on your card blank and you’re done. How easy is that! It just goes to show that if you take a little time to make a batch of background paper, you can knock up quite a few cards rather quickly, just what you need at Christmas.
Don’t forget we have a new challenge today over at the Challenge Blog so stop by at 8am and all will be revealed.
Have a great weekend.
