It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Let There Be Snow". Christmas is just around the corner!
Today I made not one but two cards and both with video! The first Christmas card is based on the knitted Christmas sweater and for that I've used many different washi tape. Even glitter washi. After I had adhered all washi I distressed all the edges with Distress Crayon Black Soot for more interest.
I mixed Texture Paste with Pale Silver Mica Powder, and used the Snowflakes stencil to make the snowflakes as part of the knitted sweater. I found that they blended to much into the background so I went over the snowflakes with Opal Magic Rose Gold Paint. When everything was dry I went around all the edges of the snowflakes with Black Soot Distress Reinker and waterbrush.
The second card is a more elegant Christmas card and I gave this card also my color palette for this Christmas: black, white and gold. First I made a background on black cardstock with the Holiday Type stamp set and SSS White Pigment Ink. Only to the edges need to be inked. The next step was to give the edges of the metallic cardstock a little more depth and I did that with Opal Magic Rose Gold Paint. For the top layer I've stamped the Stripes stamp with SSS White Pigment Ink on black cardstock.
The snowflake I used as a focal point is the SSS Eliza Snowflake die (Marzena thanks!), Of which I have distressed the edges with Black Soot Distress Crayon. On all four corners of the card I placed a gold sequin.
