I have been having so much fun getting all my holiday cards made this year. It helps that Crafter's Companion has so many cute holiday stamps sets out to choose from and to have fun coloring. Here is a card I recently made that uses the non-traditional holiday color combo of red and yellow.
I started off by stamping out the Mulberry Wood - Sent with Love image and sentiment onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Card stock for Alcohol Markers. This is the best paper that I have found for these markers. It really just lends to perfect color blending.
After I colored the main image with my Spectrum Noir markers, I used a Spellbinders die to cut out the image with my eBosser. Have you gotten an eBosser yet? I can't say enough good things about mine. I love that it cuts out larger die shapes. And I especially love that it does it so easily. With the easy to follow guide book to help, it is really a piece of cake to layer the plates and feed them into the machine. The eBosser takes over and then all you have to do is scrap with your cut or embossed pieces. Love it!! AND it is back in stock in the Crafter's Companion Store!
After I cut out the image, I layered it with some papers in my stash. I added some pretty red poinsettia flowers and brads. Next, I layered the punched out sentiment onto a matching die cut shape and used some double sided adhesive squares to adhere it to the front of the card. I love the dimension this gives. To finish the outside, I just add a bit of faux stitching with a black marker.
I didn't stop there. I went ahead and finished up the inside also. I added some complementary paper. Then I stamped a sentiment and added some bling from my stash. Easy to do and now it feels finished. What do you think? Like it?
Thanks so much for stopping by and looking. I hope you are having as much fun scrapping as I am. Until next time...happy scrapping!
