Today's card features a Christmas stamp set from the Annual catalogue!
This card was started with a base of Thick Whisper White cardstock. I am loving it for card bases! Then adhere the Merry Moments paper onto the card base.
Stamp Santa on Whisper White, stamp the ‘gift’ using a Post It note ‘mask’ (see tip below) to allow Santa to hold the gift.
Tip about the Post-It note mask: I also stamped Santa on a little sticky post it note, with the sticky side to the left, then I cut around his hand and front of his body to create the mask. Ideally you don't want to cut the sticky part off. After he was also stamped on the Whisper White, I lay the mask down on top of the stamped image to cover it, then stamped the gift over his hand. When you remove the mask it will look like Santa is holding the gift because you won't see the part of the gift box that is 'in' his hands.
Run the stamped Whisper White layer through the Big Shot with the Lots of Labels Framelits, and cut the next size up in Cherry Cobbler cardstock.
Use Aqua Painters and Cherry Cobbler ink to colour the Santa. Tip: You can use a marker and the Aqua Painter (I like to use a clear acrylic block and colour the marker onto it, then pick up the ink with the Aqua Painter), or use a stamp pad by pressing the ink pad onto the lid before sliding it open and picking up the ink with the Aqua Painter, or just use a drop of ink from a bottle of refill ink to ink up the Aqua Painter.
Adhere to the Cherry Cobbler mat and adhere to the Merry Moments DSP layer.
Stamp the sentiment on Whisper White and punch with the Washi Label punch, adhere to the front of the card. Add a Snowflake Element using the glue dots
