Holiday Card Series 2017 – #5 recycling wrapping paper

White and blue snowflakes on a dark paper background.

Hello Everyone,

Those of you who follow me here or on Instagram (safsafdesign2016) know that a few months ago I got a gift wrapped in a gorgeous glittery paper. I kept it and I am using every little piece of it. Today’s card has it too, I made a frame out of it after layering it on white cardstock.

I wanted to make a card which matched the tags I made the other day – even though I used Copics to colour the cute dog from the MFT Santa Paws set this time. I used the coordinating dies to cut it out.

I used an Echo Park stencil and white embossing paste on a white card base for a tone on tone textured background. I used a simple post it note to mask off the space for my frame as I wanted a clean background for my image.

 I also used the MFT Stitched strip die to give a bit of stitching detail to a piece of kraft cardstock and heat embossed a sentiment in white on a thin strip of dark brown banner.

After assembling the card I used a bit of Spectrum Noir shimmer pen on the Santa hat, jingle bell and the stripes of the sock. A little bit of glossy accent on the nose and bell and black glaze pen on the eyes made the image even cuter.

This card I made for the MFT Sketch Challenge #359, but will upload it to the SSS Wednesday Challenge Furry friends too.

I hope you like my card and will pop in again soon.

See you,
