New Home for the Holidays

November 7, 2016

My mother in law is moving into a new house on December 1st. I made this special card for her. I’m hoping I can make her smile in the midst of all the packing/moving craziness.



Size:  Horizontal top side A2 card

Extra Details:  I started with a panel of water color card stock that is 4.25” x 5.5”. I used a die to cut a rounded edge at the top of the panel. Next, I stamped my images and sentiment on the panel. I used a blue pigment ink for the tree. I used red, yellow and green pigment inks to fill in the ornaments and the star.

I used the sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s Snow Cool stamp set, but added a few words to fit the situation.

I added some ink blending the edges of the panel with Distress inks. I used a scrap of paper to create a mask so I could ink blend in a snow bank also. I, also, used Distress Inks to water color everything in.

While the panel was drying, I worked on the card base. I made the card base from dark blue card stock. I used Lawn Fawn’s Yeti White Pigment ink to stamp the falling snow on the card base.

Once the inks were all dry, I adhered the stamped panel to the card base and the card was complete.
