TCC138b Silent Night, Holy Night
I absolutely love our inspiration photo- the pretty blues and pinks along with the vintage feel and was inspired to create a Classy and Elegant/ Mixed Media card!
I am also participating with the International Art & Soul #88 “Christmas Card based on a Carol or Song” Challenge (Silent Night- love this carol) and the Crafty Creations #411 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit The Card Concept or the other challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- fabulous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Ink the Poinsettia Collage image (Divinity Designs LLC) using Versafine™ Onyx Black ink, stamp onto a piece of white cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Once the embossing powder has cooled, watercolor the image using distress inks along with water-based markers, lightly drying the layers with a heat tool. Once satisfied with the coloring, trim the image and mount onto black cardstock (trim again close to the edge).
Allow the gel to air-dry (this only took a few minutes) before mounting onto a 4 ¼” x 8 ½” piece of black cardstock.
Add a piece of white crochet lace to the card front and adhere a strip of melon grosgrain ribbon over the top part of the lace. Layer a piece of silver metallic ribbon over the grosgrain (wrap the ends of both behind the panel).
Adhere the entire panel onto a 4 ¼” x 8 ½” white card base.
Stamp the sentiment from Peace on Earth (retired Verve Stamps) with Versafine™ Onyx Black ink, stamp onto a piece of white cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Die cut the sentiment with a stitched rectangle die, mount onto black cardstock and trim close to the edge.
Mount the poinsettia image and sentiment onto the card front with dimensional foam (or chipboard).
Using diluted Pearl Texture Luxe™, watercolor a layer of shimmer over all of the petals.
Once dry, add a few white highlights with an extra fine white paint pen and add a rhinestone to the center of the star on the sentiment to finish off the card.
