Here’s the third card that we made at class on Monday. It features a new Christmas set in the annual catalog, Merry Mistletoe and one that was carried over from last year’s holiday catalogue, Flurry of Wishes.
We started by stamping the snowflakes from Flurry of Wishes (two sizes on one stamp) in craft white ink onto night of navy. This ink takes a while to dry so you can either leave it for a while or use the heating tool on the first setting to help it along. Either way, take care not to smudge it whilst it’s drying. Next we took the beautiful deer from Merry Mistletoe and stamped it in versamark and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder. With a mat of silver foil, it really pops. The sentiment is also from Flurry of Wishes and we stamped it in night of navy and cut it out with the layering oval framelits.
I was asked if I like the thick whisper white card stock. I absolutely love it – it’s all that I use now for white card bases. I still use the ordinary whisper white for layers and inside the card, but there’s no comparison for the base. The new thick card stock is so much more sturdy.
I hope you enjoyed today’s project.
