Hi crafty friends! I hope you’re doing well and enjoying your weekend. One of the highlights of the Christmas Season is sending and receiving Christmas cards. As a card maker, I absolutely love to create Christmas cards to send out to my family and friends.
Today, I’m sharing a card I created using MFT Stamps’ Christmas Cheer stamp set. I love any stamp set that features critters, but this one is especially adorable. I started by creating the masks for my stamped images and stamping the images in the front first, followed by the background.
Copic Marker Combination
Arctic Fox: E41, E50, W00, R30
Bunny: E44, E43, E42, E41, Blender
Tree: G17, G02, G00, G000
Red: R39, R29, R24
Trees in the back: BG72, G17, G02
Snow: G02, G00, G000, G0000
When I create a one-layer card, I usually ink blend the background before coloring. I do this just in case I don’t like the background, or some bleed-through occurs, and it won’t ruin the colored images. For this background, I used Cracked Pistachio, Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide inks on the card front, and Pine Needles Distress Oxide ink just on the edges of the card. I added white splatters for my snowy scene. Then I colored the images.
To finish the card, I heat embossed and sentiment and added highlights with my white gel pen. I really hope you enjoy this card and as always, thank you so much for stopping by; until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
The current Slimline Challenge by MFT Stamps inspired this card
