Christmas in July- Wishing You Peace & Joy
Hi Friends! I had a great time designing a few cards this weekend and decided to share another Christmas card with you today (I way am behind on my personal commitment of trying to create at least 5-6 per month).
My husband and I love to watch birds and the tufted titmouse is one of our favorites that frequently comes to our feeders, so I pulled out Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps, Peace of God Clear Stamp Set along with Season of Love Clear Stamp Set for this Clean and Simple (CAS) Mixed Media card.
I incorporated the Freshly Made Sketches FMS247 Sketch and the Splitcoaststampers CAS387 “Christmas In July” Challenge and Alba's DTGD16albitas Challenge for the design.
To create this card:
Ink the titmouse image from Peace of God and the sentiment from Season of Love with black archival ink and stamp onto white cardstock.
Use a water brush with distress inks to color the tufted titmouse image and layer both the bird image and sentiment onto gray cardstock.
Add the white highlights with a Sharpie® White Extra Fine Paint Pen.
Emboss a piece of white cardstock with a snowflake embossing folder, apply frost white shimmer paint over the panel, trim and mount onto gray cardstock, trim and mount onto the bright pink card base.
Add the layered titmouse image and the sentiment to the card front using dimensional foam to finish off the card (looping the silver cord behind the sentiment before mounting).
Thanks again for visiting- I hope you have a wonderful week, my friends!
