Today I'm sharing one of the sample cards that I've made for the shows on Create & Craft tomorrow. As you can see it's a Christmas theme. The times have changed to 11am and 4pm.
For the background, I stamped some of the small baubles from the Creative Expressions Christmas Bauble Stamp Set randomly using Black Soot Distress Ink. I dried it with my heat tool and then popped it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Constellations Embossing Folder. I popped it though a second time to extend the pattern. I then inked all over with Back Soot using Cut n Dry Foam.
I ran a piece of red card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Hedged Maze Embossing Folder. I stamped the large bauble from the same stamp set using Vermillion Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Fleur de Lys Squares and inked through the die with Black Soot Distress Ink. I threaded an Idea-ology Bauble on to some Primary Baker's Twine and tied a bow. I glued it to the top of the stamped bauble using Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.
I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Let it Snow Stamp Set again using Vermillion Archival and embossed with clear powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Ribbon Banners and inked through the die with Black Soot.
I pressed 2 Creative Expressions Victorian Metal Corners into Perfect Medium and then sprinkled some Cosmic Shimmer Christmas Red Sparkle Embossing Powder over the top. I shook off the excess and heat set. These corners start off as a beautiful antique gold but you can change them to suit your project using embossing powders, mica powders and alcohol inks - paint and dabbers would work too.
I finished the card off with some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Berry Red.
I'll be back with another sneak peak tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by.
