HEY FRIENDS! Just a quick post to show you a card that came together in a matter of minutes. Today I’m featuring the Holly Jolly stamp set by The Crafters Workshop. As always, I’ve linked supplies with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.
- Holly Jolly by The Crafters Workshop [ SCB | SSS ]
- Copic markers (see list below)
- Additional supplies listed in the thumbnails below.
To start, I cut a piece of Neenah Classic Crest cardstock to create an A2 landscape cardbase. Then, I cut a piece of Hammermill Smooth #110 cardstock to 4.25 x 5.5 inches and stamped the snowman image as shown using Hero Arts Intense Black ink.
The image was colored with Copic markers. Here, I used darker blues to really emphasize the shadows and contour of the snowman. I started with B41 and added small amounts of B45 in the darkest areas. I blended any harsh lines with B41. Then I added B0000 and BG10 to extend the blend.
After the coloring was complete, I stamped the sentiment along the bottom with Versafine Ink and added snowflakes using Distress Oxide in Tumbled Glass. I cut a piece of design paper in a fishtail shape and stamped the second sentiment with Versafine Ink. I heat set clear embossing powder over the ink to help it stand out from the background pattern.
When assembling the card, I decided to trim 1/8″ off each side of the panel. I glued craft foam to the back, but you could use foam tape to add dimension. Then I assembled the layers as shown.
That’s all for today! See you again soon!
