January 15, 2018
I know that it is really early to be starting Christmas cards for December 2018 already, but that’s what I’m doing. I have a few relatives who have requested holiday cards for next December and I decided that it would be best if I started working on them now. Here is the first card design I came up with.
Size: Vertical top fold A2 card
Extra Details: I began this card by cutting some water color paper into top folding A2 sized cards. I stamped the images in Antique Linen Distress ink. I used other Distress Inks to water color the images in. I was going for a no-line look.
After the Distress Inks had dried, I added a sentiment with grey ink. I felt this fit better with the soft water color look than a black ink would have. Lastly, I covered the whole thing with a light glaze of Distress Micro Glaze to keep the inks safe.
I really like the way this card design turned out.
Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Winter Village and Winter in the Park
Ink: Simon Says Stamp’s Slate
Various Distress Inks
Hope you enjoyed the card!
