Hi everyone! Jen here with a quick Christmas card to share with you today. This is my favorite time of year for card making with Valentine’s as a close second. I love that there are so many looks and styles for Christmas cards and that you can really knock out some stunning cards quickly.
I started by cutting a piece of watercolor cardstock down to 4 x 5 1/4 inches and then sponging on three different Distress Oxide inks using a foam blending tool. I dropped flecks of water on and let it sit for about five minutes before drying it. While the watercolor was sitting, I die-cut a snowflake cutting plate from white cardstock. I then die-cut “joy” from silver cardstock and again from white cardstock. I adhered these together with liquid adhesive.
Supplies: Cardstock (watercolor, sugar cube, silver foil), snow flurries sequins and dies (Snowflake Cutting Plate #TE231, Frame in Frame Cutting Plate #TE544, Joy Script #TE960 from Taylored Expressions; Distress Oxide ink (broken China, faded jeans, peacock feathers), ink blending tool, ink blending foams and Multi Medium Matte from Ranger Industries Inc.; adhesive back craft foam from Michaels Stores.
