Today's project I am sharing is a mixed media card featuring the Swirly Christmas Tree from Victorine Originals as well as the Merry Nature set from Raisin Boat.
I started off with the card working on the tag portion. I’ve
been obsessed with gesso since I took a card class a few weeks back and now I want to use it for everything.
I started by stamping the swirly Christmas tree on to the Kraft tag using white gesso and a clear block. I did two of these but only used one. I then set aside to dry for a few minutes, once it was dry I went in with my blending tools Lucky clover, mowed lawn and pine needles distress oxides.
To get that layered look, I did two layers of each colour, after the first I spritzed with water and dried with heat tool and then went back in with more ink. I spritzed the second layer using gold perfect pearls to add some shimmer.
I set the tag aside to the dry and worked on the rest of the card, which is pretty simple.
I decided that I really wanted to make the Swirly Christmas tree the focal point, so I stamped it out a few times, twice on to velum and heat set with gold embossing powder and the third onto heavy card stock using the pine needles distress oxides. Also used a background stamp to add some fine texture to
I fussy them out and added to the tag using some vellum in the background to ground it, I popped up the green tree. I stamped out the Merry Christmas on to a stitched banner using the sentiment from the Merry Nature set.
I created an A2 card and die cut some white card stock using a scallop rectangle die. I cut some gold foil to be just slightly smaller than the base, which I then ran through my die cutting machine with a Christmas embossing folder just to add a little extra something.
With everything cut and stamped it was time to layer it all together and add some bling just to finish it off.
I do apologize if this is long winded I really try hard to keep it short and sweet lol but seem to fail miserably ha ha.
