After a little break I am back to crafting again and I am super excited to announce that I am joining the Pretty Pink Posh Social Media Design Team for the next half a year! I think I am dreaming, I am so honored and touched to be asked to join such a wonderful team! For the occasion I created a pretty holiday card combining new and older sets together.
First I stamped the images from Poinsettia Corners and Holiday Envelopes and coloured them with Copic markers. The colours I used are:
- leaves – G85, G24. G21
- holy berry – G28, G46, E34, E21
- poinsettia – R39, R37, R35
- envelope – W4, W1, W0, W00
- pinecone – E39, E37, E34
I added some extra shading with coloured pencils and also some white pencil highlights and cut everything out with their coordinating dies. For the background I used the Christmas Background stencil with Distress Mica Stain (Fresh Balsam) just to get a little texture and pattern. I have never used mica stain before but it is so easy and looks beautiful that I am totally hooked! I want to spray every stencil I have!
When the panel was dry, I trimmed it to e slightly smaller than a A2 sized card front and added a dark green mat to it. I stamped a sentiment from the Holiday Greetings set in black on the top and popped up the envelope with 3D foam squares. I embellished it with the smaller images and the big poinsettia on the front.
As a finishing touch I used a Sakura Clear glitter pen on the berries and also added a drop of glossy accents to them. So elegant and pretty, I hope you like it too!
Thanks so much for sharing this joyful news with me and I hope you will continue to follow me on my crafty journey next year as well. I am so grateful to have you here and wish to bring a smile to your face with my cards in 2023 too.
See you soon,
