With Halloween well and truly out of the way, I am in full Christmas Card making mode and thought I'd share couple with you, using some of the fabulous new Christmas themed Craft Parts as embellishments.
I'll give you a quick run through of how I put them together.
The larger one of the two is approx 7 x 7", the base is Kraft card. I layered two layers of design paper on the base, inked the edges and distressed them heavily.
To do that, I sprayed the edges with water, let it soak in for a moment or two and then curled and squeezed the edges and scraped them with the side of a pair of scissors.
The second paper layer also has some subtle stencilling, which I highlighted once dry with Decoart Metallic Lustre in Champagne.
The focal point of my card is this cute little snowman, you can find him HERE, together with a whole lot of other designs. At first I was sorely tempted to colour him, but in the end I just added a bit of brown shadow to one side, as I think the plain wood kind of fits my home spun theme here....
The Christmas words finished it all off, again there are a ton of different styles to choose from. I coloured them a bit with the same colour of Metallic Lustre. Oh and by the way, the I dot comes separately, so make sure you don't lose it.
The second card is about 6 x 6 and put together in a similar way. I just gave it a decorative edge with some dies from my stash and layered up different vintage Christmas images..
I used some of the super intricate mini snow flakes to embellish it, LOVE THESE!!! Different styles can be found HERE, endless choice and there are larger ones too! Below a few close ups:
Again all I did was highlight them with the metallic lustre, but they are gorgeous just as they come and of course also could be painted white, whatever you fancy.
Well, that's it, - two more cards to cross of my list. Thanks for visiting like always and see you next time! Stay crafty!!
