Hope You Love This Card

November 12, 2019

Hey Roadies!!  It’s Amanda Fitterer bringing you a non-traditional Christmas card using the Happy Holla Days stamp set!

I’m red & greened out when it comes to Christmas cards already!  I’m ready for something more snazzy!  Why not blue and green!?

For my beautiful blue/green background, I blended Lucky Clover, Cracked Pistachio, Broken China, and Peacock Feathers.

(Useful tip:  To eliminate fingerprints and keep your fingers clean, use a piece of Masking Paper, a Post-it note, or Purple tape to hold your paper in place!)I sprayed a fine mist of water onto the background and let it dry.

I used Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp snowflakes from the Happy Holla Days stamp set.  I cleaned them and then moved them and stamped them again until my background was done.

I used Black Soot distress ink and a water brush to flick black spots.  I used white acrylic paint to flick white spots.

To stamp my Santa, I used Tuxedo Black Memento Ink because it works well with Copic markers.

I used the following Copic markers to color my stamped image:

I used a “Frosted Sugar” embellishment to create texture on his hat.

I created my own tag out of the stamped image by measuring, marking lines with pencils, and using my paper trimmer.  I used a hole punch that is great for ribbon threading and then tied some twine that matched my blue/green palette.

On black cardstock, I used my anti-static tool and then stamped my sentiment and some additional snowflakes with Versamark Watermark ink.  I used my heat gun to heat emboss the images.

I added a piece of white cardstock behind my cut sentiment.

I fussy cut my snowflakes out.

Using 3D foam squares, I adhered my tag, sentiment, and the snowflakes to my card.

For the final step, I adhered Aurora Deluxe gems.

Here’s more photos of the finished card!

Until next time!

XOXO, Amanda
