I don’t make many Christmas cards to send out, because I typically send photo cards of my kiddos. However, every year I always make a few because sometimes I can’t fit my whole idea on to a tag.
Size: Horizontal side fold A2 card
Extra Details: I started with a panel of water color card stock that I die cut with a stitched rectangle. I also die cut a slope on the top edge of the panel. Next, I stamped the images and sentiment on the panel. I stamped the hats and red nose on a scrap of water color paper and die cut them out.
I also hand cut another slope from another scrap of paper. Using the slope and some Distress Ink, I added a snow bank to my scene. I didn’t worry about masking the dogs because I knew I would be coloring them a much darker color and the ink blending would show.
I used Distress Inks to water color all of the images. I also added the paw print in the snow with a very little blue Distress Ink. I attached the hats with some dimensional glue dots and the nose with a glue pen.
While, the panel wad drying, I worked on the card base. I cut and folded some dark blue card stock into a standard A2 card base. Using Post It tape, I masked the edges along the sides and top to match the stamped panel. I used white pigment ink to stamp the snow directly on the card base.
Lastly, I adhered the stamped panel to the card base, making sure to align the edges with the edges of the snow stamping.
