Ornament Christmas Card

Here is a pic of a super simple Christmas Card design.  I really like this stamp and have seen some lovely cards made with it.  I saw it used on a scrapbook page also, which I probably wouldn’t have thought to do.  I made this card flat as it would be easier to send through the mail.

Supplies List

Paper Trimmer, Scissors, Double sided tape, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, X-press It blending card, Distress Ink – Antique Linen, Foam Blending Tool, Stamps – Hero Arts Ornament  , Paper – Kraft cardstock, My Minds Eye ’12 Days of Christmas’ 6×6 paper pad and Kaisercraft December 25th Collection,  Spica Pen – Clear, Copic Markers YG63, Yg67, B00, B02, R22, R27, R29, Y11, Y15, Y17, Yg00, Yg03, Colourless blender

Method

I first stamped the ornament stamp onto blending card using tuxedo black ink and then coloured using the copic markers listed above.  I removed some of the colour from the spots on the ornaments using my colourless blender.  I used the spica pen to add some shimmer to some parts of the ornaments.  I trimmed the card to be a square shape and trimmed the pattern paper also.  I covered the ornament image with antique linen distress ink using my foam blending tool, then flicked a little water over it just to give it a more distressed look (I learnt this technique from Jill Foster  (You can check out her blog here).  One benefit of copic markers in this technique is that the water doesn’t alter your colouring at all, as the alcohol ink doesn’t interact with water.  I adhered the card together using double sided tape.  I cut the words ‘Merry Christmas to all’ from the Kaisercraft paper and glued using liquid adhesive.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Until next time,

Kristy
