Candle Light Christmas Card

Hi everyone, today I have another Christmas card to show you all! I totally love all Whimsy Stamps images and this one is no exception! Let’s get started!

Step 1:

I started my project by printing this digital image by Whimsy Stamps called “Candle Light” onto alcohol marker friendly paper. I coloured around the image using the Spectrum Noir Illustrator alcohol marker in BT8. Later on I will fussy cut the image on the top part leaving a small border.

Next I used the Dutch Doobadoo template with number 470.713.312 to trace my base card on white linen textured card stock, and the top part from teal coloured linen textured card stock matching my BT8 marker. After tracing I cut the designs using my scissors and I used an edge distresser on the edges. I created the same bottom line, using the template, on the digital image and distressed that as well.

Step 2:

On my teal card stock I than stamped one of the sentiments from the Altenew “Holiday Wishes” stamp set using VersaMark ink and I heat embossed using Wow! “Metallic Silver Regular” embossing powder. I also created some splatters using a white Posca pen by tapping the marker on a pair of scissors with the cap of (of course).

Time to colour my focal point: today I’m using mostly Spectrum Noir Illustrator alcohol markers in combination with a few Spectrum Noir Classique markers:

For teal I used: AB1 and AB3;

For brown I used: FS9, MB2, GB7 and TN8;

For yellow/orange I used: BO1 and BO3 in combination with a Classique marker in BO05;

For my pinkish-purples I used: PV1, PV3, PV4, BP7, HB1, PL4 in combination with a Classique marker in PV05;

On the snow and other white parts I used: BG1 and BG4.

After the colouring is done I added back in some highlights using a white gel pen.

Step 3:

Now I can put my card together: I adhered the coloured image on top of the teal snowy background using one millimetre thick foam tape and to finish the project I adhered this combination onto the previously created white card base also using one millimetre thick foam tape.

And that is it for today’s Christmas card project! I wish you a creative day!
