Christmas Wishes


I feel like I just skipped over Fall and went straight to Christmas.....although I'm hoping on gettting a couple of Fall cards made, I thought it would be a good idea to get started on some Holiday cards....

One of my Youtube subscriber brought to my attention that I should update my blog and list what materials I used to create this card that I posted a video of on my Youtube channel (see video below)....Thanks Barbara, I really appreciate you doing that.   I really needed someone to call me out on that, so that I may get my bootie in gear and get this blog current.....

I started off by stamping this adorable image by Crafters Companion from the Mulberry Wood collection, called Christmas Wishes using Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black, then coloring it with copic markers.  I used my Zig 2-way glue and spread it all over the bottom portion of the stamp, then covered the area with Stampin' Up - Dazzling Diamonds (my favorite glitter to use for snow).  I also applied a little bit of Liquid Applique by Marvy Urchida on the branch and the white spots (this product you have to apply to the area desired, then add heat with your heat gun, in order for it to create the puffy look of snow).  The sentiment I used came from the stamp set.

For my card base, I used Kraft cardstock by Papertrey ink, and layered all my pattern paper with Pure Poppy, also from Papertrey ink.  The stripped paper as well as the blue with white snowflakes pattern paper is from a 6"x 6" paper pad by My Minds Eye - Winter Wonderland. The green polka-dot paper is from 6"x 6" paper pad by Pebbles called Seen & Noted.  I used the Spellbinder Nestabilities Circles Large and the Petite Scalloped circles large to cut out both the small and large circle as well as the red layered scallop circles.  For my scalloped border, I used the Stampin' Up scalloped punch and to finish it off, the snowflakes were cut using the My Favorite Things - Let it Snowflake die-namic set, with glitter paper.  I stacked the smallest of the snowflake to the medium size snowflake using a small pop-dot, then applied red rhinestone to the middle of the snowflake.

I hope you liked this card.....and thanks for stopping by!
