Christmas Wishes

The Paper Shelter Cozy Winter Wishes

Hi guys, today I have another Christmas card to show you!

I figured that when I would create at least one Christmas card per week until just before Christmas that I should have a nice stash to not have to rush too much last minute.

To get this card started I printed a The Paper Shelter digital image on regular printer paper. This image is called “Cozy Winter Wishes“, isn’t she adorable? I die cut a circle from part of the image using one of my Crea-Nest-Lies XXL circle dies. Then I started colouring the image with my Faber Castell Polychromos coloured pencils. I used the following colours: 132, 189, 108, 111, 219, 217, 166, 165, 146, 187, 283, 176, 177 and 175.

Next I die cut a stitched circle using one of the dies in the My Favorite Things “Stitched Circle STAX“ die set from some matching red card stock. I applied liquid glue to this red circle die cut and spread the glue with my fingers, then I adhered the coloured image on top and set aside to dry. This way you don’t get smudges on the coloured image (because the paper is very thin).

For my background I choose to use a white card stock panel, die cut with one of the Crea-Nest-Lies XXL stitched rectangle dies. Then I stamped one of the sentiments from the beautiful Stampin‘ Up “Flurry of Wishes“ stamp set on this panel using VersaMark ink and heat embossing with Ranger “Gold Super Fine Detail“ embossing powder. Around the sentiment I stamped the two smallest snow flakes from the same Stampin‘ Up stamp set using second generation stamping with a Prima Marketing Metallic Chalk Edger (chalk ink) in the colour “Carbon“.

I die cut a slightly larger matching green rectangle panel using another Crea-Nest-Lies XXL die set and then adhered the sentiment/snowflake panel on top of the green panel using liquid glue. These combined panels I adhered to a white card base using one millimetre thick foam tape. Next I adhered the combined circles with the coloured image, on top, also using one millimetre thick foam tape, making sure that the red circle is just a little outside the green panel on the right hand side.

To finish this card I adhered some matching red and gold sequins in different sizes using Ranger Medium Matte.

And that finishes today’s card!

I wish you all a creative day!
