Hi there! Clare popping in today with a sweet and cheerful card!
I started the card off by stamping elves onto white cardstock and coloring them in with markers. I used combinations of pale green and cobalt blue to get the aqua look. Layering your lighter color markers is a great way to get new color combinations!
After my elves were colored, I stamped my sentiment with mint julep ink. I didn’t think the ink was dark enough, so I stamped over it with tide pool, using my stamp positioner to get the placement perfect.
I finished off the white panel by stamping a couple music notes in black.
For just a little extra detail, I stamped a garden tile background on blue paper, and heat-embossed with clear sparkle embossing powder. I then adhered a strip of the embossed cardstock to the side, along with a strip of homemade “glitter paper.” The glitter paper was made by inking black cardstock with watermark ink and then heat-embossing with either clear sparkle embossing powder or black sparkle embossing powder.
Thanks so much for stopping in today and God bless!
