Today I have card to share with you featuring the bauble from the Creative Expressions Christmas Swirl stamp set.
I stamped the bauble onto cream card using Jet Black Archival ink and quickly embossed it with clear powder. I coloured it in using Cosmic Shimmer Drawing Inks - I used some matt and some mica ones. I cut the image out using a rectangle nestie and inked around the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and Cut & Dry Foam. I cut a gold mat out using a scalloped rectangle nestie.
I cut a longer piece of cream cardstock and randomly stamped one of the poinsettias from the Tatty Button Poinsettias stamp set in perfect medium all over the piece and on a triangle piece of card. I embossed these with clear embossing powder. I then added some Vintage Photo Distress Stain. The embossed images resisted the ink. I like the way it almost looks like I've stamped on wood. It's more effective in real life. Have a go - it's so easy! I matted these two pieces and a square piece of red card onto some gold.
I assembled the pieces as per the layout at Sketch Saturday this week but did not add it to my card blank.
I ran some super sticky tape along the appropriate place on the card and ruffled some Basque Red Vintage Ribbon along it. I wrapped the ends around the back and then fixed the design to a 6" x 6" Craftwork Cards card blank.
I'm entering this card into the following challenges -
Sketch Saturday - Week 180
Make It Monday #62
Papertake Weeky Challenge - Christmas
