Hello friends and readers! Welcome back from the weekend. I hope you all had a great one. Mine was equal parts crafting, relaxing and baking. I have been starting to design cards and classes for 2020 and would you believe that I'm already thinking about Valentine's Day!? I know, I know! Christmas isn't even here yet, and yup, Lawn Fawn is already enticing us with their Stud Puffin release! But, I've still got a few more Christmas themed cards to share with you just yet. . .
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I die cut the mountains from Neenah White Solar Smooth cardstock using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Mountain Border dies. I created an alcohol ink backround for behind the mountains. (See highlight below on alcohol ink backgrounds). I die cut the mountain tops from Smoky Slate cardstock. Using the Stitched Slopey Joe Borders, I cut one snowbank from white cardstock. I put a thin layer of Lawn Fawn Chunky Glitter on the top of that snowbank. I created the trees from white cardstock using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Tree Borders. I cut the "leaves" of the trees out from Silver Glimmer paper. I stamped the sentiment in salmon ink in the lower right corner of the card. I stamped the yeti's and trees in Memento Tuxedo black ink on Neenah White Solar Smooth cardstock. I colored the images with Copic markers and adhered them to the card using foam adhesive for added dimension.
*Because I am not currently creating video technique content on my website, I highly recommend checking out this Easy Alcohol Ink Background Tutorial on YouTube by the amazing Jennifer McGuire. She has created a very simple introduction to working with alcohol inks to create background pieces. This was the first video I watched after purchasing my alcohol inks and then I just spent time playing with them!
Here is the Yeti or Not stamp set from Hello Bluebird that I used to create today's card:
Thanks for visiting and have a great week!
